Mrs Con, whose three sons had been killed protecting their fatherland, was born in 1909 in the central province of Phu Yen. In 1930, she migrated to Cambodia. After Vietnam gained independence and unification, she came back home in 1975.
In two wars against France and US, her family hid many Vietnamese soldiers, operating in Cambodia, in her house and provided them with food.
Mrs Con lives in District 5, HCM City.
