Vietnam

The Dong Loc Memorial, in Ha Tinh Province, is located at a junction at the beginning of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in northern Vietnam, which was extensively bombed by the American forces during the Vietnam War.

 

The war monument and park commemorates ten young girls, aged between 17 and 22, who were killed on 24 July 1968, while helping with logistics at the T-junction as youth volunteers.
