                                                         The Vietnam People's Army


The Vietnam People's Army (VPA), the core of the Vietnam people’s armed forces, is an army from the people and for the people, and ready to sacrifice their own lives for “the independence and freedom of the Homeland, for socialism and for the happiness of the people.” The forerunner of the VPA is the Vietnam Propaganda Unit of the Liberation Army, the first main force established on December 22, 1944 under the directive of late President Ho Chi Minh.
It has been 70 years since the establishment of Vietnam Propaganda Unit of the Liberation Army, the predecessor of the Vietnam People's Army. Each time when we see materials about the very first days of the Army we all have a sense of pride mixed admiration of the 1st generation of officers and soldiers of the Army of the VPA, which founded by the people and for the people to fight.
So far, a lot of researchers around the world have been seeking answers to the wonders that the VPA has made along its history of combat and development. Until now, many researchers haven’t yet understood why, an army, which was born without equipments and weapons, had won great victory, even they didn’t have enough  shoes to use, and then open a new page of history of the VPA with various great victory against powerful enemies. It’s hard to explain exactly why if the researchers just look at the amount of the soldiers or equipment of the VPA at the early days. To win the battle for the first time on the front, the army had been led, taught and trained by the Communist Party of Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh. Under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh, the army had know how to rely on the people, use the power of the people and lead the people in the fight to defeat the enemy. The leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh, the loving, caring, sharing, helping of the people are the sources of strength of the VPA, make it strong to fulfill its holy mission "The missions always be completed, the difficulties always be overcome and the enemy always be defeated"
When the country is peaceful, along with the entire Party and the people, the officers and soldiers of the VPA do not only complete successfully their political duties, firmly safeguard the independence sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country, but also actively participate in the economic-social development; willing to sacrifice for the happiness of the people. The spirit and the will are not only gratitude for to the people’s great help, but also the duty of every officers and soldiers of the VPA.
In the glorious history of the Vietnam People's Army, there has been a lot of meaningful stories and work of officers and soldiers which had left a deep impression in the hearts of people, and made people love them very much. In combat, many officers and soldiers of the VPA have always been ready to take their body to protect people; ready rush forward to prevent the enemy to protect the lives and property of the people. In peacetime, officers and soldiers of the VPA are appearing in every parts of the country from deltas, islands to mountainous areas to work with and help the people; together with the entire Party and people hastening the elimination of hunger and poverty, bringing a prosperous life, happiness for the people. In natural disasters, floods, fires, despite the danger, officials and soldiers of the VPA are the first ones to be there, ready to sacrifice themselves for the lives and property of the people.
It does not have enough words to tell about the love, protect and caring of the people for officers and soldiers of the VPA during 70-year road of construction, fighting and development. And we also do not know how much work that officers and soldiers of the VPA need to do to repay the people for the VPA’s establishment and development. It’s known that, in the heart of every Uncle Ho's soldiers are flaming the aspirations of devoting for independence, freedom of the country, for the happiness of the people./.

no army in the world is “politically neutral” or “stays out of politics”, because any war has it own political goal, reflecting the political stance of the sides, so the participating militaries are all geared to serve the political goals of the war.
