The villagers rushed into the forest, and A Dinh rushed home to see if his mother and children had entered the forest when a group of soldiers came running. These guys went to catch the looters and bring them back to the station for them. So they took A Dinh along to carry pigs for them. A Dinh gritted his teeth and struggled to carry a large pig in a cage. Reaching a slope next to the stream, A Dinh intends to take advantage of this terrain to escape.

At the age of 13, Vu A Dinh escaped from his family and became a liaison member of the Tuan Giao district’s armed group. Vu A Dinh’s armed group operated in a very large area, from Dien Bien to Tuan Giao and then back to Tua Chua.

Although life in the resistance war was very difficult, Vu A Dinh was still very optimistic and loved life. Stick is very eager to learn and study well. He always stuffed a book in his chest to study hard. Stick has learned to read and write fluently.
Because the enemy intensified their search and destruction of the armed team, the unit always had to move everywhere. To keep it secret, the unit’s location is often on high mountain slopes, far from water sources. That’s why life is so hard. Stick was assigned by the unit to collect water and he did it very skillfully, always ensuring that the unit had enough water to use. Stick’s main task is to make communications. Every time he received a mission to contact Stick, he was also very clever, ensuring safety and returning before the allotted time.

Because the sky was cloudy, it was difficult to see. Stick suddenly fell into the enemy’s ambush without even knowing it. The Western team knew that this was a contact for guerrillas, he looked pleased and asked:
– Where are you from? (The French enemy still called Viet Minh cadres in Lai Chau province “province man”)
A Stick calmly replied:
– Do not know!
The name of the Western team roared:
– This ammo bag you brought to the province to shoot us without you knowing? Say it or I’ll blow your head off now.”
Sticky still replied:
– Do not know!
The name of the Western team could not keep calm, it rushed in to beat Sticky bag dust. The enemy took turns beating Vu A Dinh brutally until noon. Tired of fighting the enemy and asked again, Dinh only replied with two words “don’t know!”. An evil soldier took the butt of a gun and broke one of A Dinh’s shins. His face was bruised, his lips were swollen, and his leg was broken very painfully, but Stick bit his teeth, tears flowed, his mouth did not say a word.

On the morning of the third day since being arrested, the Western team member came to Vu A Dinh and seduce him, saying:
– Say a word, I will give you a bandage, cure your broken leg, give you good food and a lot of money. Say, where are you awake?
Sticky is still as inert as a stone, not revealing even half a word. At that moment, the Thai, Hmong, and Xa people were caught by the enemy passing by, seeing the scene of Dinh, and everyone was moved to tears. Suddenly, Stick recognized a villager. Sticky message in Hmong:
-The bag of documents I hid in the forest, message you guys to take it back.
Whenever he met someone he knew, he would leave the same message in front of the guards.
The Westerner commanded the soldiers:
– This kid knows a lot of guerrillas. Let it crawl away, you have to die instead.
At night, they sent up to 4 guards to guard A Dinh. Knowing that it was difficult for him to escape the cruel hand of the enemy, in the morning when the West team arrived, Vu A Dinh pretended to nod: “Knowing and knowing!” The soldier called out to the soldiers to bring milk and bread, but Dinh only took a few sips of water and said:
– Make a stretcher for me!
For a whole day, Stick forced the enemy to carry him all the way from one mountain to another, but he still refused to point out where the soldiers were stationed. Wandering around until evening, Stick again led them back to their original starting point. A Dinh looked up at the sky and mountains of his hometown and smiled. Realizing that he had been tricked, the Westerner roared. It discharges a whole magazine of bullets into Vu A Dinh’s chest. Then he ordered someone to hang Vu A Dinh’s body on an old peach tree. The enemy secretly ambushed for many days here in order to capture our armed units to bring back Stick’s body. It was the evening of June 15, 6. Vu A Dinh heroically sacrificed himself beside an ancient peach tree in Khe Truc, near the Ban Chan fort, when he was not yet 1949 years old.
The life of a young liaison soldier of the Tuan Giao armed group has ended, but Vu A Dinh’s indomitable spirit in front of the enemy is still like a bright torch in the Northwest mountains. On the land of Pu Nhung today, every citizen always follows the example of the young hero Vu A Dinh, actively emulating production labor, developing the economy, contributing to making the village more and more developed and worthy. worthy of a land rich in revolutionary traditions.

– YES! Very good. If this Hue citadel had people like you, the French would quickly be defeated in a day not far.

The contact comrades just finished talking, then burst into tears. The story of the boy Luom was told by his grandfather everywhere to the children. Wherever he went on duty, he also brought that brave example to tell the children. When peace was restored, he brought it back to his hometown to tell his children and grandchildren to educate the family tradition.
Whenever I think of Luom, my mind pops up with the image of a young boy, carrying a document bag on his shoulder, wearing a backpack on his head, whistling loudly, walking and jumping on the child. sunny road. Guom sacrificed himself heroically while on duty in the rain of bombs and bullets, the boy sacrificed himself in the motherland – a noble sacred sacrifice, a shining example that our generation must follow. .
Short story on March 26: Vo Thi Sau and the grenade destroyed the enemy
In February 2, she led a team, used grenades to attack two evil villains Ca Sut and Ca Day. But unfortunately, she fell into enemy hands. They tortured her with all kinds of torture, but also had to give up because they could not exploit anything. After that, they immediately took her to the detention center in Chi Hoa, Saigon to continue exploiting and then opened a trial and sentenced her to death.
At the felony trial, although she was only 17 years old, Ms. Vo Thi Sau proudly showed the heroic mettle of a Vietnamese girl that made the judges and her accomplices all fear. The lady affirms:
– Patriotism against colonial invaders is not a crime!
And when the judge rang the bell to interrupt her, giving her sentence: “Death, confiscation of all property”, she shouted at him:
– I still have a few trash cans at Chi Hoa clinic, we’re going to confiscate them!
Followed by a loud and eloquent shout:
– Overthrow the French colonialists! Resistance is certain to win!
The French colonialists really wanted to kill this scary girl, but did not dare to carry out the death sentence for a minor. They had to continue to detain her in the Chi Hoa clinic and then take her to Con Dao. On January 23, 1, they executed the sentence, shot and killed her outside this island far from the mainland, 1952 days after they brought her here. Knowing that she was about to be executed, during the night of the 2nd, she sent her heart to the country and people with revolutionary songs such as: Going to the Way, Let’s go to war together, Tien Quan Ca,…

– Now I baptize you.
She dismissed the priest’s words:
– I’m not guilty. Only the person who is about to execute me is guilty…
Still he patiently persuaded:
– Before you die, do you have any regrets?
She looked directly into his face and the face of the judge, and replied:
– I only regret that I have not destroyed all the colonists and the henchmen selling the country.
Arriving at the courthouse, the judge asked her:
– What else to ask before you die?
– No need to blindfold me. Let my eyes behold my beloved country until the last moment and I have the courage to look directly into the muzzle of your guns!
After saying that, she began to raise her voice. She sang the song Tien Quan ca. The voice of the daughter of Dat Do now seems more earnest and soaring, passionately drowned out the voice of the judge reading the execution order as well as the shout commanding the soldiers to load the bullets of the captain of the legion. . When the commander ordered the soldiers to prepare to open fire, she immediately stopped singing and shouted:
– Overthrow the French colonialists! Long live independent Vietnam! Long live President Ho!
Her screams seemed to make the executioners drop their hands, seven dry gunshots crackled. Ms. Vo Thi Sau was still standing proudly. Her eyes glared straight at them. The captain of the legion did not organize to fire the second salvo. He pulled out his pistol and staggered back, put it right in her ear and pulled the trigger…
After that, the feat and especially the heroic action against the enemy of Ms. Vo Thi Sau – the heroic Vietnamese daughter – was transmitted not only in the prison balls but also in the bedrooms of the gods. islands, dignitaries and families across Con Dao…
The Vietnamese people have always had a heroic and indomitable tradition: “there is death that turns into immortality, there are words above all songs”. Yes, Sister Sau will still live forever with the history of the Vietnamese revolution, still imprinted in Vietnamese poetry, and at the same time, she also contributes to the radiant beauty of the country’s rivers. She will always be a resilient and indomitable example for Vietnamese youth in the new era.
