Phu Yen inaugurates Vung Ro relic site

The People’s Committee of Phu Yen Province on March 26 inaugurated a historical site, which was once an important port for shipping weapons from the North to the South during the war against the US.

The VND12.5 billion work, Vung Ro unnumbered ship, covers an area of one hectare in Hoa Xuan Nam Commune, Dong Hoa District.

From November 1964 to February 1965, Vung Ro, an isolated bay on the rocky coast, received four unnumbered ships shipping weapons and medicines from the North to the South.

However, on February 16, 1965, Vung Ro entered the history books because of a particular incident. A US army officer flying his helicopter along the coast of South-central Vietnam spotted a large, camouflaged vessel perpendicular to the shore. Cargo was being unloaded and stacked on the beach. To keep the cache a secret, the North Army capsized and sank the ship.
