Hien Luong Bridge and the Ben Hai River will be an enduring symbol of the everlasting desire for peace, national independence and reunification.The Geneva Agreements on Vietnam signed in 1954 divided the country into North and South Vietnam at the 17th Parallel where the Ben Hai River runs through the central province of Quang Tri. The temporary division was only expected to last two years, but in fact it stood for 21 years through the great struggle for national reunification.Throughout this prolonged period, the Hien Luong Bridge in Vinh Thanh village in Vinh Linh district of Quang Tri province became a symbol of division, expectations and the pain of loss.
The bridge represents the desire for national reunification. The soldiers and people of Quang Tri, and all of Vietnam, struggled bravely, loyally and heroically, leaving behind glorious pages in the history of the fight to achieve the current national independence.
Khe Sanh Combat Base : The 1968 Battle of Khe Sanh was the longest, deadliest and most controversial of the Vietnam War, pitting the U.S. Marines and their allies against the North Vietnamese Army. Both sides have published official histories of the battle, and while these histories agree the fighting took place at Khe Sanh, they disagree on virtually every other aspect of it.
In an unconventional war without conventional front lines, statistics became the most critical measure of progress. The most controversial statistic in Vietnam was the number of killed in action (KIA) claimed by each side. If a battle tallied a sufficiently favorable body count ratio, American commanders declared victory, as they did after Khe Sanh. A closer look at the Khe Sanh body count, however, reveals anything but a straightforward matter of numbers.
Khe Sanh is a village located near the Laos border and just south of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separated North and South Vietnam. As early as 1962, the U.S. Military Command–Vietnam (MACV) established an Army Special Forces camp near the village. The Americans wanted a military presence there to block the infiltration of enemy forces from Laos, to provide a base for launching patrols into Laos to monitor the Ho Chi Minh Trail, and to serve as a western anchor for defense along the DMZ.
