Corps No.3 leads the implementation of policy work for war invalids, martyrs, and Military family

Being fully aware of the position and role of policy work for war invalids, martyrs, and Military family, in recent years, High Command of Corps 3 has paid attention to leading, directing, and implementing this key task, which contributes to ensuring and improving material and spiritual life of beneficiaries and creating a driving force to build the Army and the Corps strong in the new situation.

Corps 3, also known as Tay Nguyen Corps, the mobile regular force of the Ministry of National Defence, is stationed in the strategic area of the Central Highlands. In recent years, this place has witnessed considerable socio-economic developments and step-by-step improvement of people’s lives thanks to the attention of the Party and the State. However, due to historical events, especially, the consequences of the wars in the past, the number of poor households and policy beneficiaries accounts for a high proportion, particularly in the areas where ethnic groups reside. Additionally, because of the location and the requirements of tasks, there is a majority of the Corps’ cadres and soldiers whose families are far away and in difficulty. Therefore, along with well implementing the central political tasks – training and combat readiness as regular tasks – in recent years, the Standing Party Committee and High Command of Corps 3 and its affiliates have focused on leading and directing the across-the-board implementation of policy work, especially that for war invalid, martyrs and Military family, which contributes to improving beneficiaries’ material and spiritual life to create a driving force to build the Army, strengthen national defence and protect the Fatherland.

Thoroughly grasping the resolutions and directives of the Party, the State, the Central Military Commission (CMC), and the Ministry of National Defence on policy work for war invalids, martyrs, and Military family which is manifested in Directive No. 368-CT/QUTW issued on June 12th, 2016 by the Standing Committee of the CMC on “Strengthening the leadership and direction of policy work toward the Army and Military families in the 2016-2020 period and the upcoming years”, the Corps has concretised the higher echelon’s guidelines and measures into annual and periodical resolutions and directed the comprehensive and synchronous implementation at all levels which is close to the conditions and tasks of each agency and units. Accordingly, the Corps has seriously carried out the policy for war invalids, martyrs, revolution contributors, and participants and well-performed activities of “gratitude repayment”. Thanks to the higher echelons’ orientation and instructions, the Corps has directed its functional agencies to check, appraise, and verify profiles to promptly deal with the regimes for active personnel being wounded when performing military-defence tasks. Besides, it has checked and verified cases of war invalids, martyrs, revolution contributors, and participants to ensure openness and transparency in accordance with subjects and law to effectively surmount difficulties arising from the implementation process.

In the forthcoming time, natural disasters and the Covid-19 pandemic become more complicated and unpredictable; cadres and soldiers still live in difficult conditions, etc. In order that policy work of war invalids, martyrs, and Military family is implemented effectively to meet task requirements, especially the adjustment of organisation, personnel, weapons and equipment allocation to build Corps 3 “pure, orderly, and strong”, its Party Committee and High Command focus on leading and directing several tasks and measures.

Firstly, strengthening the leadership and direction of party committees, commanders, commissars, and political agencies at all levels toward the policy work for war invalids, martyrs, and Military family. Party committees, command, and commissars at all levels are required to be aware of their responsibility in leading and directing the implementation to fit the viewpoints and guidelines of the Party and policies of the State; at the same time, they should also proactively determine suitable and effective plans and measures. Additionally, the Corps should attach importance to promoting the role of its policy agencies and cadres in advising, proposing, concretising, and implementing synchronously and effectively policy work for war invalids, martyrs, and Military family; promoting the work of inspection, supervision, management and keeping track of the situation, promptly commending and rewarding well-performed units and individuals, etc. Accordingly, the Corps will be able to bring into play the synergy of its organisations and forces, proactively detect and promptly handle difficulties, resolve to surmount shortcomings during the implementation of policies and regimes of the Party and the State for policy beneficiaries and Military family support.

Secondly, strengthening the coordination with local party committees and authorities in implementing policy work for war invalids, martyrs, and Military family. Over the past years, it is shown that the implementation of the work relies on and relates to multiple branches and fields, especially, the shortcomings and difficulties in receiving and identifying the information of martyrs, martyrs’ graves, and other beneficiaries. Thus, leaders and commanders at all levels must cooperate with party committees and local authorities to determine their responsibility in joining hands to implement the regimes and policies toward active servicemen who live in difficult conditions. Coordination is required to identify and ratify the profiles of war invalids, martyrs, revolution contributors, and participants after the wars; repair, embellish and upgrade war memorials; search and gather martyrs’ remains and perform gratitude activities, etc. In addition to promoting internal resources to set up funds, agencies and units should actively propagate and educate cadres, soldiers, and people in the localities on the purposes, significance, and results of policy work for the Army and Military family; advantages and difficulties of the country; the country’s tradition and the moral standard of “drinking water, remember the source”. Accordingly, resources from organisations and individuals should be promoted in order to well conduct the work of war invalids, martyrs, and Military family care policy and ensure that “no one is left behind”.

Thirdly, well conducting policy work for cadres, soldiers, and Military family. Party committees and command of agencies and units should lead and direct the implementation of checking, supplementing, compiling dossiers, appraising, and ratifying Social Insurance for beneficiaries. Importance should be attached to wounded and fallen military men during the implementation of military-defence tasks and those who stop their active duty. It is also necessary to compile and supplement information for all military men and their families to grant Health Insurance cards so that they can be provided health examination, treatment and care at health facilities inside and outside the Army as regulated. At the same time, some regimes and policies must be promptly, appropriately, and adequately ensured such as pensions and support for sterile cases. Importance should be placed on enhancing the effectiveness of management, treatment, care, and policies for those having fatal diseases, long-term illnesses, and mental illnesses; seriously appraising the health of military men after their recovery to consider returning to duty or implementing regimes as stipulated. Regular attention should be paid to the material and spiritual life of cadres, officers, and soldiers, especially military men and families living in difficult conditions. Besides, the Corps should also continue to coordinate with its functional agencies to implement Circular No. 177/2011/TT-BQP issued on April 1st ,2017 by the Ministry of National Defence on accommodation, and the use of public houses in the Ministry of National Defence to ensure unity, openness, transparency and proper subjects.

Fourthly, well implementing policy work for the families of war invalids, martyrs, and revolution contributors and the “Gratitude” movement in the localities. The Corps should continue to care for and encourage the families of policy beneficiaries (wives and children of martyrs and war invalids) in their material and spiritual life; consider the employment of their family members as stipulated. It is necessary to extend the service time of martyrs’ family members whose aspiration is to continue serving in the Army. The Corps should also well conduct propagation to raise cadres’ and soldiers’ awareness and responsibility in donating and setting up “Gratitude” Fund and implementing “Gratitude” movement in the localities where it operates in order to join hands with the units, local party committees and authorities to assist policy families and revolution contributors so that they can enjoy a higher living standard.

Corps 3 regards conducting the policy work for war invalids, martyrs, and Military family as the responsibility of the party committees at all levels, organisations, and forces; an important, long-lasting, and regular task that bears sacred affection of cadres, soldiers, local party committee and authorities. Hereby, taking care of and ensuring the material and spiritual life of military men’s families, policy beneficiaries and revolution contributors help creating a driving force that promotes the task accomplishment of its cadres and soldiers and making it an all-strong “exemplary and typical” unit.

Major General NGUYEN VAN LANH, Commissar of the Corps
