The secret armory in District 3
Nestled in an alley in District 3, the idyllic house is an evidence of history. Being a hiding place for nearly 2 tons of weapons of Saigon Rangers during the offensive and rebellion of the 1968 Tet Offensive, the small house on Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street became a historical evidence. Everything there speaks of Vietnamese heroic victory. Mr. Tran Van Lai (Nam Lai) bought this house and turned it into a base for weapons in agreement with the commander of the unit.
Weapons hidden in the armory were used for the battle to the headquarters of Nguy - Reunification Palace. The transport of weapons from the point to the secret basement into the city was extremely difficult and dangerous. If detected by the enemy, the rangers must destroy their weapons by themselves, which means sacrificing their secrets to both the shipping route and the hiding place.
The construction of this armory was carried out secretly and safely. This had contributed significantly to the victory of the General Offensive 1968 Tet. The Saigon Rangers suddenly captured the targets. 15 soldiers of Team 5 received weapons from the house, then bravely headed toward the Independence Palace to conduct a daring battle.
