2015 marked 50 years of both Singapore's independence and the formation of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF). The SAF50 campaign paid tribute to our National Servicemen, Regulars and all Singaporeans – from the pioneer generation to the current – for doing what they do to defend Singapore and support the SAF so that we can live in the peace and security that we have enjoyed all these years.
In celebration of SAF50, an exhibition was launched at SAF50@Vivo from 12 Feb to 15 Feb 2015, and was later displayed at different parts of Singapore. It was an interactive experience anchored by a collection of SAF stories, and had four main clusters. You can view the exhibition panels here.
A commemorative book, titled “Giving Strength to Our Nation: The SAF and Its People”, was also published. Launched by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the SAF50 Dinner on 24 Jul 2015, it is a collection of personal stories that capture the collective experiences of everyone who have served in and supported the SAF. You can read the stories here, or download a PDF version of the book here.
