Tay Tien (Marching West) Regiment 52, known as Tay Tien Regiment, was set up on February 27, 1947. The regiment was based in Son La province during the anti-French resistance war (1945-1954). The soldiers were dispatched to the battlefields in the northwest region and Upper Lao, contributing to the glorious victory of the Vietnamese revolution and international missions in Laos.
Writing in the memorial book, NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan noted that the Tay Tien historic relic site plays a significant role in educating Vietnamese younger generations about patriotism.
Meanwhile, Lao NA Chairwoman Pany Yothotou underlined that the relic site is a symbol of the combat alliance between the people’s armies of Vietnam and Laos. Vietnam and Laos will further the special traditional solidarity for benefits of the two peoples.
