Following last year's success, the Women's Boot Camp returned for another round on 7 and 8 Sep. This year, more than 100 ladies signed up to experience a slice of Basic Military Training and gain a better understanding of what their loved ones go through during National Service.

We took this opportunity to quiz two participants – 60-year-old Judy Koh (the oldest participant) and 27-year-old Colleen Tang – to find out what they've picked up during the two-day boot camp.
