Navy Region 4 ships carrying officers, soldiers, journalists as well as New Year gifts departed from Cam Ranh military port in the central province of Khanh Hoa on December 21 for Truong Sa (Spratly).
As scheduled, the ships will dock at islands and islets in the district, delivering supplies and gifts to people and soldiers stationed there on the occasion of the upcoming Lunar New Year Festival (Tet).
The gifts include essential goods and traditional food for Tet donated by organizations and businesses.
On December 20, 100 gifts were presented to personnel and policy beneficiaries at the Navy Region 4 High Command, as part of an annual program run by the Communist Party of Vietnam Online Newspaper and the Vietnam People's Navy High Command, according to the Dangcongsan.

It has become an annual tradition for the Naval Region 4 High Command to organise voyages to the Truong Sa archipelago to replace and withdraw troops, as well as to send New Year wishes to the islanders every year.
Onboard the vessels are also household items which meet their demands in their daily lives.
Naval soldiers bid farewell to their family and relatives before setting out to take on new missions on the Truong Sa archipelago.
Hundreds of tonnes of goods, necessities, gifts, along with fruits and vegetables from Khanh Hoa Province’s People’s Committee and from other localities nationwide have also been transported to Truong Sa to make the Lunar New Year Festival on the islands just as prosperous as that enjoyed on the mainland.
