    i mean, what we went through, or the kind of torture the older generations went through shouldn't be unnecessarily imposed and burdened upon the new recruits, but.... this is too much

    If you want an M-16, all you need to do is be on the platform of the KL central train station.

    While transitting at the station, I was shocked when I literally had to step over several M-16s lying on the platform floor of the station w/o anyone guarding them. Their owners were off smoking some distance away (and not concerned the one bit). Someone could have easily put one in their bag and walked off with it espscially when it was crowded.

    Pardon my ignorance, I thought SAF already switched to the homemade rifle, and only those old NSmen units still using the 'obsolete' M16?

    Sorry, lost touch upon completion of 13yr ICT.

    How heavily he will be punished depends on his officer. One thing for sure, he will be charged, just a matter how what is the charge.

    I had an armskoteman who lost a entire bolt carrier during my NS days. He tried to cover up for a few months and during the inspections, it came to light that one bolt carrier was missing. After investigations, he was charged and served just 2 weeks DB for "disobience of order". Apparently my OC was a kind man who didnt believe in pushing people to the grave. Hence he didnt charge him directly for the loss of the bolt carrier but instead for disobeying regulations on proper armskote security.

    I merely misplaced the washer holding the flash suppressor during BMT whilst cleaning my M16 and I almost pissed in my pants and started moving around the bunk discreetly asking ppl in low voices if they'd seen a washer.

    Partly becos my PS was in the bunk with dat guai lan look
