    correction, RANGER is not a vocation. It is a course only.

    So at the end, did you choose medic as your vocation in commando?

    The famous clause "This is not your father ARMY". "What you wanted to be" is not equal to what you end up to be. I ended up in OCS and become a commando officer eventually.

    Well, that famous quote belongs to a particular officer.

    I didn't want to be anything at first because I was still a blurred bird during BMT at Tekong. One day SAFPU people came and told us to stand straight in a row side by side. With two words 'You, out', I became an MP after ORD.

    I have ROD for 10 years already. Until now, when I tell people that I was a commando officier for only 6 month, people still give me that little bit of respect.

    When I am 50 years old and I tell my children that I was a commando officer for 6 months, they also give me a little bit of respect too.

    Even when I die, my grand children look at my Army pictures and they say that my grandfather was a commando officer. His friends will also give a little bit of respect.

    Do you think it is worth it for the 6 months of service? You only live once, do what you think it is right to do and don't look back. "for honour and glory"

    After BMT, most of us have no say what vocation we want to go to.

    Unless we sign on as a regular in the SAF.
