Peaceful life on Truong Sa
Forty-five years after the reunification in 1975, generations of soldiers and people in Truong Sa island district, Khanh Hoa province, have steadfastly stayed on the islands and continue to work on the sea.
Their sacrifice and efforts have brought about a new look for Truong Sa archipelago and breathed a new life into the islands.
