To mark the 75th year since opening the road to the north and 60th year of Ho Chi Minh Trail at sea (October 23), the Ben Tre Provincial Party Committee has recently organized incense offerings and memorials for heroes and martyrs who sacrificed themselves for the glorious revolutionary cause of the nation and national liberation.

In early 1946, the Ben Tre Provincial Party Committee successfully organized the first sea-crossing trip, sending the delegation of Zone 8 to the North to report to the Party Central Committee and President Ho Chi Minh about the situation of resistance in the South; and provide weapons for the battlefields of the South and Ben Tre. That sea crossing was the basis for the Party Central Committee to decide on the policy of opening the Ho Chi Minh Trail at sea in the following years.

From 1963 to 1970, there were 23 ships of Marine Corps 125 transporting more than 1.4 thousand tons of weapons to the troops and people of Zone 8 and the Southeast region, contributing to many resounding victories.

After visiting wharf A 101, the delegates performed the ritual of offering incense, flowers, and spending sacred moments in remembrance of the great merits and heroic sacrifices of officers and soldiers of the unnumbered ships. For Ben Tre Province, this was also an event to teach  patriotism for the young generation./.
