PANO – The former Anti-aircraft Gun Battalion 1 of Military Zone 4 on July 18th received the “Hero of the People’s Armed Forces” title in acknowledgement of its glorious feats of arms during the resistance war for national salvation.
In December 1964, Battalion 14 of Division 312 was moved to Military Zone 4 and renamed Anti-aircraft Gun Battalion 1.
During the national resistance war against foreign invaders, the battalion fought in southern battlefields and achieved many glorious feats of arms.
Since the restoration of peace, the unit was dissolved and on April 25th 2013, the State President signed a decision to present the unit the noble order.
