"I appreciate my parents for their support. Initially, I didn't want to aim for command school but MWO Lim Seng, my OC in J Coy, SCS III, inspired me. It was tough during field camp but he was always encouraging me to go on."×
SCT Muhammad Asyraf from 1st Transport Battalion (1 TPT BN) was an Officer Cadet at Officer Cadet School (OCS). He did not complete the course due to injury. After he recovered, he was posted to 1 TPT BN as a Transport Leader, and had to go through the Specialist Cadet Course (SCC). Less than a month before the end of SCC, SCT Asyraf's life was turned upside down when his father passed away. It was a very difficult moment for him and his family. However, his mother and friends continued to put their faith in him and supported him. Not only was he the recipient of the Distinguished Honour Graduate, also known as the "Golden Bayonet", he was also given the honour of being the Parade Commander at the Graduation Parade as a testament to his tenacity. SCT Asyraf dedicates his Golden Bayonet to the people around him who have made a difference.
"My parents always said to me: 'Whatever it is, do your best. You never know what opportunities will come.' When my father passed away, I was devastated. But I knew I had to remain focused and complete this course. I would like to dedicate this Golden Bayonet award to my late father, my mother, Dzul, Rolu, Ryan, mriee and Hafez. Without them, I would never have made it this far."×
"I would like to thank my parents because they are the ones who have always supported me. I would also like to thank my friends from 38SCE, my previous unit. They are the ones who spurred me on to go for command school."×
MAJ Francis Yeo recently graduated from the US Chemical, Biological, Radiological Nuclear (CBRN) Captain Career Course. He performed outstandingly and was awarded the International Distinguished Honour Graduate Award. He was amongst 25 other officers
who attended the course with him. He attributed his success to the training he received in the SAF:
" My previous appointments held in the SAF have prepared me for the course. The SAF Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Explosives (CBRE) Defence has always been at the forefront in terms of development, readiness and capabilities. "
For ME1(T) Shorini Dhurga, studying nursing in her polytechnic just wasn't enough & she pursued a different path: " I wanted to do more than being just a nurse. I wanted to contribute back to and represent Singapore in some way. Admittedly, it's tough being in the military due to the physical rigor and strict discipline, but becoming a Combat Medic lets me give back to Singapore in a meaningful way that no other occupation can offer. I'm glad that I've pulled through the tough training, thanks to the support and encouragement that the people around me gave me. Graduating from SCS marks the start of my career, and I'm looking forward and hoping to learn more. "×
"I'm really, really proud of her. Jasmine has become more independent, more positive and most importantly, stronger, since she embarked on her military career."
Those were the words Ms Serene Chew (centre) had for her friend of 10 years, 2LT Jasmine Yeo. 2LT Yeo was one of the many Army Officers and Military Experts who attended yesterday's "Our Army Scholarship and Study Award Ceremony" with their parents and loved ones to receive their awards. The Signal Officer will be pursuing a degree in Mechatronics with the University of Glasgow in Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT).×
Meet 3SG Jagrnjeet Singh, a regular Infantry specialist who just graduated from the 15/13 Specialist Cadet Course. As a junior commander, he is looking forward to leading his men and giving them a positive time in the SAF. He elaborated, "I am in this not for the money but for my passion. I want to give a different experience to my men and show them that there is much more to National Service than the two years. Having been a trooper before in 4 SIR, I understand how troopers feel and want to make a positive impact on their time in NS."×
