Man Charged After Defaulting On NS, SAF Showing They Don't Target Pro Footballers Only

Man Charged After Defaulting On NS, SAF Showing They Don't Target Pro Footballers Only

Lee's case echoed that of professional footballer wannabe, Ben Davis. He was supposed to have served his National Service currently, but he defaulted and is said to have signed professional terms with Fulham, an English based professional football team. While Davis has still not been charged in court as he is currently still in absentia without official leave, or AWOL, Lee has been dealt with, as he had returned to Singapore and serving his defaulted NS obligations.

SCDF NSF: EMERGENCY PARAMEDICS SHOULD NOT BE DEALING WITH DRUNKS

I'm an SCDF NSF who recently ORD and wish to share some insights of the night duty, especially having to deal with party goers from Clark Quay/Mohd Sultan.

I felt that as an emergency paramedic supposed to deal with life threatening situations, instead it is totally a waste of time when resources have to be dispatched to attend to drunken who're either unresponsive due to severe intoxication or get injured due to provoked fighting.

A netizen who claims to be working for the Ministry of Defence says his commander sexually harassed and molested him and "a whole slew of other people". He says he is now afraid to voice out about the mental trauma he is going through because he does not want to be marked as a mental case and jeopardize his future career.

CYBER DEFENDERS TO BE AN ELITE NS VOCATION ON PAR WITH COMMANDOS AND NAVAL DIVERS

The authorities will place a stringent selection process in order for National Servicemen to be able to join the cyber security team. Minister Ong said that this vocation is very socialized and targeted, as well as very demanding much like how commandos and naval divers are selected.

Maybe one problem they will face is that these cyber security squad may focus less on the physical side of their NS stint, while focus will be more on the mental side. Will that be a boring stint serving NS, or be seen as an elite vocation to aim for?

WOMEN SERVING NS IS BETTER FOR SG THAN HAVING PR SERVE NS

I think it is high time for females to serve NS since they haven't been producing enough babies with our falling fertility rate of below 1. Women can serve in paramedic, recce, sniper, scout, artillery, intelligence, UAV pilots, security, etc. There are so many roles that doesn't require physical strength and women can fit into these roles perfectly, leaving those physically demanding roles to men.

By doing so, we can increase manpower. I would also trust women citizens more than male PRs. Which makes me question why do we need PRs, who are effectively foreigners, to serve NS? No foreigners should ever be trusted to defend our nation. In times of war, they might even be recruited to be spies by foreign invaders.
