Visitors attended the Exhibition

On May 16th 2019, around 300 former female soldiers of the Truong Son Trail from across the country gathered at the Vietnamese Women's Museum (VWM), marking a day filled with happiness and laughter.


To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Truong Son Trail Opening Day and the Traditional Day of Truong Son Soldiers (19/5/1959 - 19/5/2019) as well as the 10th anniversary of the Former Female Soldiers of Truong Son Trail Association (2009 - 2019), VWM cooperated with the Former Female Soldiers of Truong Son Trail Association to organize the opening ceremony of the Exhibition tilted "Truong Son Pride". We were honored to welcome Madam Nguyen Thi Tuyet - Vice President of the Vietnamese Women's Union; Madam Le Thi Thu Hien - Director of the Heritage Department of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism; Major General Vo So - Central Commissioner of Vietnam Fatherland Front and Chairman of the Former Female Soldiers of Truong Son Trail Association; Madam Le Thi Phuong Thao - President of the Vietname Youth Volunteers Council and Head of the National Communication Commitee of Female Soldiers on the Truong Son Trail. Joining the event are representatives of attractions in Hanoi and the press.

 Some casual yet moving stories of 60 former female soldiers and young volunteers on the Truong Son Trail recreated a timeline filled with tenacity of will, power of hearts, asperation and innocence of youth when they started entering the war and conquered it. Any areas, even in the fiercest key routes on the trail were attended by female soldiers. The Truong Son Trail has left names that become legendary such as 10 young volunteers at the Dong Loc T-Junction; the Trung Trac Female Battalion of Ha Tay Province, the Team of Female Drivers named after the heroine of the Southern Liberation Army - Madam Nguyen Thi Hanh; 232 Transport Battalion which belonged to the V Logistic Military Department and other immortal names such as Ho Kan Lich, La Thi Tam, Nguyen Thi Huan, Ho Thi Thu Hien, Dinh Thi Thu Hiep, etc.

Mrs. Nguyen Hai Van - Director of the Vietnam Women's Museum emphasized: "We are not here today to praise the heroines but to feel and understand with our hearts how they went through bombings and other life or death situations on the trail. We would like to express our gratitude to those devoting their youth and life to the country in both wartime and peacetime with their everlasting Truong Son pride."

As one behalf of the men attending the event, Major General Vo So - Chairman of the Traditional Association of The Truong Son Trail shared his feeling: "This Exhibition shows pride of the Truong Son Female Soldiers. We are extremely thankful to those who contributed to the historical mission of our country and made glorious achivements for our motherland."

The Truong Son Pride Exhibition shows deep gratitude of today's generation for the dedication and great sacrifice of the Truong Son Female Soldiers. They devoted their youth for the mission to connect the North and the South of Vietnam, leading to the country's glorious victory.

The exhibition is open to the public from May 16th 2019 to July 15th 2019 at the Vietnamese Women's Musuem.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
