Legal education, discipline management and safety assurance at Regiment 3

The work of legal education, discipline management and safety assurance is carried out in order to make a huge positive change in troops’ awareness and responsibility for observing the State’s law, the Military’s discipline, and regulations on training and traffic safety. To that end, the Party Committee and Command of the Regiment 3 (aka Thuan Hoa Regiment), under the Military Region 4’s Division 324 have taken various creative, proper measures. As a result, the Regiment has effectively prevented violations of law and safety regulations (below 0.3%), particularly the serious ones as the basis for building a pure, strong Party Organisation, making the Regiment “exemplarily, typically” comprehensively strong, and fulfilling all assigned missions.

To achieve those good results, the Regiment’s Party Committee has focused on promoting the role of its affiliated party committees in raising the effectiveness of legal education, discipline management and safety assurance. It has directed all-level party committees to grasp higher echelons’ resolutions and directives on legal education, discipline management and safety assurance in tandem with the Resolution No.4 of the 12th Party Central Committee on the Party building and rectification, the 12th Politburo’s Directive 05-CT/TW on studying and following Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, ethics and lifestyle, and the Directive 855-CT/QUTW by the Central Military Commission Standing Board on continuing to implement the Campaign titled “promoting tradition, devoting talent, deserving to be Uncle Ho’s soldiers” in the new period. Besides, it has implemented proper measures to achieve a positive change in troops’ awareness and responsibility for this important work. In the process, the Regiment has generalised and made those measures short, easy to remember, easy to understand, and relevant to its task and each group of troops. At the same time, it has aligned the contents of military standard order building, discipline management, and safety assurance with the execution of the 11th Military Party Congress Resolution on “tightening discipline to make a solid transformation in the observance of the State’s law and military discipline across the Military.” It has conducted inspections and carried out reviews to deal with all signs of formalism in legal education, weaknesses in ideological management and discipline management, and subjectivity in the observance of safety regulations and traffic safety laws.

A legal dissemination contest at the Regiment

Great value has been attached to renewing and diversifying forms and methods of legal education in order to raise troops’ awareness and orientate cadres and soldiers’ compliance with the military standard order, military discipline, and safety regulations. The Regiment has closely combined yearly legal education programmes with forums and dialogues, such as “Thuan Hoa Regiment’s youth emulate good training, great unity, strict discipline, and absolute safety,” “Thuan Hoa Regiment’s youth say no to smoking,” and “Thuan Hoa Regiment’s youth observe the State’s law and the Military’s discipline.” At the same time, it has well organised the Contest of “Legal Propagation” and effectively maintained models, such as “voice of commissars” and “one legal question everyday, one article of law on a weekly basis.” Doing so has enabled the Regiment to equip troops with necessary knowledge of law and build up cadres and soldiers’ incentive, determination, and self-awareness to abide by the State’s law, the Military’s discipline, and units’ regulations. The whole Regiment has well maintained the “letter box of feedback” so as to grasp troops’ opinions and detect negative practices as the basis for taking measures to effectively prevent possible violations of law and discipline. To realise “the Legal Day of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam” and “the year of discipline,” the Regiment has focused on introducing laws and law enforcement documents, holding conferences to draw lessons on discipline management and safety assurance, and effectively presenting law-related scenarios on the monthly “Legal Study Day.” It has also strictly maintained 2 hours of legal study on a weekly basis so as to achieve a consensus about the importance of observing law and discipline to the building of a comprehensively strong unit. In addition, units across the Regiment have required their cadres and soldiers to study legal documents in legal bookcases, at Ho Chi Minh halls, and via the internal radio system, Vietnam National Defence Television Channel, and Ministry of National Defence Web Portal. Doing so has contributed to making all troops respect, protect, and abiding by the State’s law, the Military’s discipline, and units’ regulations.

Fully aware that “a brilliant example is better than one hundred speeches of propaganda,” the Regiment’s Party Committee has determined to encourage the role model-setting responsibility of cadres and party members, particularly the key ones for military standard order building, discipline management, and safety assurance. The Regiment’s Party Committee and Command have directed affiliates’ party committees and commands to grasp and abide by the Regulation 101-QĐ/TW, dated June 7th, 2012 by the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat on “the role model-setting responsibility of cadres and party members, particularly the key ones at all levels” and the Party Central Committee’s Regulation 08-QĐi/TW on “the role model-setting responsibility of cadres and party members, particularly members of the Politburo, the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat, and the Party Central Committee.”  Cadres and party members have been required to further improve their political zeal, morality, lifestyle, and law-abiding awareness, and set good examples for subordinates, soldiers, and the masses to follow with specific deeds. Besides, the Regiment’s Party Committee and Command have directed cadres and party members to actively renew their working method and style in a focalised, close, drastic, scientific, and effective manner. Cadres and party members have been asked to follow Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, ethics, and living standards of industriousness, thrift, integrity, uprightness, public-spiritedness, and selflessness as well as the regulations on party members’ don’ts. Thanks to those above-mentioned measures, the quality of cadres and party members within the Regiment has been raised and they have become typical examples positively affecting each soldier’s ideology, will, and action in the Regiment’s military standard order building and discipline management process.

Furthermore, the Regiment has focused on enhancing the effectiveness of discipline management and safety assurance. Doing so would provide a foundation for forming standard behaviours in military standard order building, discipline management, and safety assurance amongst all cadres and soldiers. Thus, due attention has been paid to organising training courses on the Military’s Troop Management Regulations in order to improve cadres’ management capacity and soldiers’ awareness of compliance with commanders’ orders. The Regiment has also held training courses on use of weapons and equipment together with safety regulations as the basis for equipping cadres and soldiers with necessary knowledge and avoiding violation of training and traffic safety regulations. On a yearly basis, all cadres, party members and the masses have to write a commitment not to committing social evils or violating regulations on drinking when driving and on duty. Soldiers and non-commissioned officers have been not allowed to drink alcohol and use mobile phones. The entire Regiment has committed itself to seriously implementing the Directive 1443/CT-QK, dated May 16th, 2021 by the Commander of the Military Region 4 on prohibiting smoking within the Military Region’s offices and units. All cadres and soldiers’ observance of regulations have been closely monitored. At monthly meetings, units of the Regiment must report their discipline management to the Regiment’s Party Committee Secretary and Command and propose measures to rectify their weaknesses. Consideration has been given to improving cadres and soldiers’ legal culture, working style and habit of abiding by the State’s law, the Military’s discipline, and units’ regulations. Great value has been attached to closely managing troops, weapons, and technical equipment via daily and weekly regimes. Cadres at all levels have been required to “have meal with, live with, work with, study with, and share with” soldiers to grasp their subordinates’ ideological developments, aspirations, and social relationship as the basis for implementing measures to orientate troops’ ideology, opportunely rectify ideological deviations, and prevent violation. Significance has been attached to closely cooperating with local party committees, authorities and organisations and troops’ families in managing cadres and soldiers’ issues relating to money borrowing with high interests, gambling, and betting in both real life and cyberspace to ensure the effectiveness of discipline management and safety assurance.

With those above-mentioned practical measures, over the years, the Regiment has witnessed no serious violation of discipline and traffic safety. That good result has made contributions to raising the Regiment’s synergy and combat strength as the basis for successfully fulfilling all assigned missions.
