Many young people from Hanoi, Danang, and the central provinces of Quang Nam and Phu Yen have enthusiastically signed up for military service.

In Hanoi, nearly 1000 youths joined the armed services on a voluntary basis on March 3. More than 90 percent of the recruits were Youth Communist League members aged 18-21. About 80 percent of conscripts have good health at level A or B.

The same day, more than 1,400 conscripts in Quang Nam province left their homes to do their military service. The recruitment was assessed to be of high quality as there were no desertions and no opposition to conscription.

On March 2, more than 500 young people from Danang joined the army. As many as 65 percent of them had previously graduated from high school, college or university.
On the same day, 710 youths from Tuy Hoa city and some districts of Phu Yen province joined the army.
