ALL NSMEN CAN TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORT FOR FREE ON 30 JUNE, SO LONG AS THEY WEAR UNIFORM

Calling it the "NS50 Free Travel Day", the gesture is meant to thank NSmen for their contributions. There are no limits as to the number of free trips the NSmen can take. All NSmen, past and present, can travel on the public buses and trains for free on that day so long as they are wearing their uniforms - the No. 3 or No. 4 uniforms for the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) servicemen and duty uniforms for Singapore Police Force (SPF) and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) servicemen - for verification purposes. So that means, past NS men, who had finished their Reservist duties, or even those who are still serving their Reservist, but not on 30 June, have to put on their uniforms just to travel for free. After all, the free rides are in honour of their services to Singapore. For the male heroes who last wore a uniform a decade ago, hopefully they can find their uniforms, and then fit inside their uniforms, to be honoured by the free rides.

SALUTE NSMEN CAMPAIGN REQUIRES THE PUBLIC TO SALUTE EVERY SINGLE SECOND EVERY DAY

A new NS50 campaign was just launched by Safra on Sunday, named "We Salute our NSmen". This campaign hopes to rally Singaporeans to show their appreciation to all past and present national servicemen for their contributions. What this campaign is about is a simple premise, namely, the public just have to salute the national servicemen they know or meet in their daily lives. And they are also asked to post a photo or video of the salute on social media with the hashtags #NS50salute and #safrasg. Basically, this means that any male Singaporean that the public sees who are above 20 years of age, then we should salute them. As all Singaporean men are required to undergo NS, the person next to you on that public transport probably deserve a salute. Your husbands or boyfriends also deserve a salute. Anyone who is a male Singaporean, in fact, deserve a salute. So, start saluting away.
