Talking with us, the old doctor Le Thanh Do (former Head of Orthopedic Techniques - University of Labor and Social Affairs) said that he himself is a war veteran with a disability rate of 61%, so he understands the difficulty whose body is missing a part.

On the pension, salary subsidy for wounded soldiers, Dr. Do have called for more friends in the industry and international organizations to collaborate to save the purchase of tools and equipment.
