The leaders and former leaders then paid tribute to President Ho Chi Minh at his mausoleum. 

The same day, many delegations from the Ministry of National Defence, the Ministry of Public Security, the Government Office, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, and Hanoi city also laid wreaths in memory of martyrs and paid homage to President Ho Chi Minh.

The Vietnam Invalids and Martyrs Day is a special chance for the entire country to commemorate millions of martyrs and war invalids who sacrificed their lives and health during the wars.

In 1947, just two years after President Ho Chi Minh delivered the declaration of independence, the first decree on preferential policies for war invalids and fallen soldiers was issued. 

The same year, July 27 was designated as the national war invalids day, which was later renamed the War Invalids and Martyrs Day, to call on the entire community to support war invalids and martyrs’ families in acknowledgement of their contributions to the nation.
