On a gloomy and cold winter day, the volunteer youth platoon consisting of four men and four women rushed into a small cave in the middle of the Truong Son Mountains to avoid bombs. The 20-day road seemed to be crushed, the mountains and forests trembled, and when the smog cleared, people were shocked to realize that the cave entrance had been filled.
In many ways, the comrades tried to pave the road for others to return. And going on this way, after nine days and nights of a hopeless escape, they breathed their last in these lands.
Then somewhere from above, the comrades came back, joining the words of the mountains and rivers: Those who stay, live for us!!!
