The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union chapter and the Military Command in Can Tho City, southern Vietnam on Thursday launched a military semester program for 100 students aged between 11 and 17.

The program aims to ignite patriotism and national pride among the youth and educate them on the traditions of the Vietnam People's Army, contributing to improving the young generation’s responsibility to society.

Tran Viet Tuan, deputy secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union chapter in Can Tho, said this is the 14th year the program has been held to provide a space for young people to practice discipline, life skills, and learn the value of love and working, thereby nurturing their souls and creating a foundation for them to develop comprehensively.

The 100 ‘little soldiers’ would join the course for 10 days lasting until July 20.

Many of them were excited, while some cried as their parents did not accompany them.

They would attend classes on political education, team orders, etiquette, life skills, self-defense martial arts, and fire prevention and control, among others.
