State leader attends Army Officer School traditional day

Hanoi, April 15 (VNA) – State President Truong Tan Sang presented the third Ho Chi Minh Order to Army Officer School I while attending a celebration of its 70 th traditional day on April 15.

Army Officer School I was the first military school established by the first Commander in Chief of the Vietnam People’s Army General Vo Nguyen Giap.

Over the past seven decades, it has organised 82 training courses and graduated more than 100,000 officers. The school has also helped train military officers for Asian, African and Latin American countries, most notably the neighbouring Laos.

Speaking at the ceremony, the State leader requested the school renew its curricula as well as improve upon teaching and learning methods in order to train officers who meet requirements of the Party, State and Army.
