On 23/5/2109, staffs of Museology devision (Hoi An Center for Cultural Heritage Management and Preservation) reveived an army mess kit kept from American resistance war by Ms. Đỗ Thị Hồng Hạnh.
She was allotted this mess kit when she joined Youth fighting team of Quang Da province. This was her daily used item for 10 years during American war.
Ms. Đỗ Thị Hồng Hạnh had participated in American resistance war since 1965 when she was 17. Now she lives in No.16 hamlet, Phong Hoa, Son Phong ward. Before, she gave other army items to Hoi An Museum including two water bottles, two mess kits, one water cup and one backpack rain cover. Some of them belonged to her teammates who sacrificed their life during the war.
Those artifacts contain historic values. Những hiện vật này vô cùng quý giá về mặt giá trị lịch sử. The Museology devision is working on collection profiles and soon display the artifacts at The exhibition of revolutionary history – Hoi An Museum.
