North Vietnamese "Warrior Resolved For Victory"

Rick Research

Recommended Posts

Just picked this up at this morning's monthly show. NOT in Emering's book-- ??? too recent/current, or ???

The colors seem to imply Viet Cong rather than regular PRVN forces. Two small stars appear to have been removed from the ribbon.

The inscription "Chien Si Quyet Thang" (Warrior/Combatant Resolved/Resolute for Victory) was used on OTHER awards which do not match this small, thin, hollow struck star:

haven't a clue. :rolleyes:

One more area where the absence of a good and carefully researched sources equates to limited interest. We need MUCH better than Emering's piece.

Take advantage of these undocumented areas while you can. Someday there will be agood book on Vietnamese awards, written by someone who knows the languages and did the research.

Hello all, I think the Quyet Thang medal pictured is mounted with the wrong hanger. The ribbon is for the Liberation War Exploit Order and the medal should be hung from a dated metal hanger as in the picture. It is a PAVN award issued after 1975 and, I think, replaced the various Emulation awards.

If feel Ed is, once again, right on target with his guidance that the shortage of good VC/NVA militaria references is a great collecting opportunity (rare these days). I will post some of my acquisitions as time permits.
