Stone statues commemorate ten heroic female martyrs
Posted: Sep 03,2010
The statues of ten young female volunteers

The statues of ten young female volunteers - martyrs were inaugurated yesterday at the Dong Loc T-junction relic site in Can Loc district, Ha Tinh province.

The statues are located opposite the Dong Loc bell tower and Dong Loc Temple on a precinct of 1,156 hectares.

The VND 14 billion (US$719,000) for the statues was raised from benefactors at home and abroad.

The ten statues have been sculptured by artisans from Ninh Binh province since August 2008.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Deputy PM Nguyen Thien Nhan highlighted the great contributions of the ten young volunteers as well as all of the voluntary youth force in the Resistance War for national salvation. The construction of the ten statues expressed the gratitude of the Vietnamese people towards the ten heroic volunteers who laid down their lives at Dong Loc T-junction to ensure transport could get through the junction during the war.

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 ..."
