Historical war zone

Thuan An Hoa War Zone is a compound name of 3 localities of Thuan Giao, An Phu and Binh Hoa of old Lai Thieu district. The war zone was formed in 1946 and is a peri-urban base at the northern gateway of Saigon.

This is also a place to gather and transfer our combat forces. Therefore, the enemy always sought ways to sweep down to destroy this revolutionary base.

In addition to the 3 strategic rounds, the road to the war zone is also arranged by our forces, automatic pit systems, nail holes, mines in dangerous places and constantly changing positions.

With the layout of the battlefield's strong defensive system, they could not uproot the thorn in this eye even though they tried everything.

Thuan An Hoa is one of the bases for our main force to attack key positions in the South, contributing to the North's  Dien Bien Phu victory should shocked the planet in 1954.

By the time of the anti-American resistance war, the enemy also tried to erase the forest so that the revolutionary forces in Thuan An Hoa war zone had no hiding place. They regularly pour rain of bombs, bullets and storms on Thuan An Hoa war zone. Although the forest is no longer available, thanks to people's hearts, Thuan An Hoa is still the base of cadres, party members and guerrillas in secret bunkers. Thanks to the protection and nurture of the local people, all the intrigues and tricks of the enemy did not shake the will and the courageous fighting spirit of our people. Under the correct leadership of the Party, the brave intellect of the revolutionary forces and the "popular battle" here, Thuan An's army in particular and Binh Duong in general have contributed together with the whole country to make a great victory in the spring of 1975, liberating the South and reuniting the country.
