Recently, some online netizens were complaining about the SAF exploiting our NSFs and volunteers to pack the #SG50 goodiebags for NDP this year.
But these people don't realise that it is not just the NSFs but all the regulars as well. This includes all the regular specialists, warrant officers and even officers. Not just any officer but the biggest officer of the unit incharge of getting the goodie bags packed and ready for our national day.
If you see the middle aged man in the photo, he is BG Lam Sheau Kai, the Commander of the Combat Services Support Command HQ. He is down there with his men, getting his hands dirty, getting things done. He is not blowing aircon in his office and sitting on his hands.
I know we always kpkb that all these paper generals are useless and detached from the ground but I hope you will give credit when due. How many superscale generals will get all sweaty and dirty with his men doing such menial tasks?
This is a good example of the SAF Officer's Creed which reminds all officers to "Lead my men by example". I hope you will publish this and praise the good example demonstrated by this humble and down to earth man.
