Tay Tien monument

The last one, I would like to introduce to you about Tay Tien (Westward) monument where saves all memories of many national heroes in a military war. They dedicated their youth, their life to liberate in our country because of protecting our country. We are the next Vietnamese generations, who always memorize about their great sacrifices. This historical place is described by the mighty poem “Westward March”.

Scattered along the frontier were graves away from home

Of those who left for battlefields without regretting their youth

Shrouded in military uniforms instead of reed mats, they returned to earth

The Ma river roared a solo – journey dirge

(Poem: Westward March – translation to English)
