"This activity upholds the tradition of the Commando Corps, and at the same time reflects the sentiment and gratitude of commando troops toward the veterans' generations. The meeting is an opportunity for us to review the glorious tradition of the Vietnam People's Army in general, and the Commando troops in particular, and to pay tribute to and glorify the contributions and sacrifices of the whole people and soldiers during the resistance war for national independence, freedom, and reunification," she said.

Over the past 53 years, generations of troops of the Commando Corps have constantly kept in mind Uncle Ho's teachings to make a lot of glorious victories. The unit has been constantly developing and always striven to fulfill its assigned tasks in the past and in the current cause of national construction and defense.
With the glorious achievements, the Commando Corps was honored with the title of Hero of the People's Armed Forces, the First-class Military Exploit Order, and the 16-golden words.
