55 Years of National Service (NS55)

2022 marks the 55th Anniversary of National Service.

Since the introduction of NS in 1967, generations of national servicemen have served with unwavering dedication, pride and strength to keep Singapore safe and strong. Families, employers and the public have supported our national servicemen so that they can serve with peace of mind. The continued support for NS by everyone in Singapore remains critical in enabling this duty of securing our home and future to be passed down from one generation to the next.

Highlights

The theme for NS55, “Generations of Strength”, reflects the collective resolve and dedication of our national servicemen across generations who have contributed to the defence and security of Singapore, and inspires Singaporeans to continue building a stronger Singapore.

The NS55 logo, comprising three distinct elements, represents the various facets of NS:
