    actually, come to think of it, the modern SAF is not bad. think "welfare" for our boys in green
    maybe they will issue all NSF their personal segways, then dun have to worry about physical exhaustion. ST Kinetics can modify them to mount backpacks & rifle racks. Should solve all embarrassing issues with maids carrying backpacks for the future.

    i might be one of those babysitters.... or one of those who can't google

    there's also the unspoken rule of yesteryear: you can spoil others' kids. after all, they'll be a menace to their parents. NOT you

    I am REALLY out of touch with what goes on in NS nowadays (I was nsf from 1981 , 5 SIR)

    PLEASE TELL ME THE FOLLOWING IS NOT TRUE :

    1. Got outside contractors to do area cleaning nowadays
    2. No need to do toilet cleaning
    3. After meals dont need to clean your metal dish ... got contractors or FT to do your dish-washing
    4. Got contractors pick up their rubbish on ground floor of barracks everyday
    5. Flu or cough will get 1 day MC and Stay in Bunk or go home if its 2 days or more MC

    it is. but during my time like 3 years ago... we still did our own cleaning.
    we don't wash our own dishes.... because they didn't want us to waste time cleaning. but we practically trained all day long.
    basically we clean the whole battalion. the only one entitled to a cleaner... is the CO
    it's not easy to get an MC -.-

    I do not know whether this is true now. I only know during my time, if I don't do the above properly, I will be in deep sh*t

    MC?? My time if you keep getting MC, you will get to enjoy but when in camp, the person will be very lonely.......he will most likely be outcast

    Something to highlight, if your son went to NS, complained of flu/cough, MO say, no go.

    Next day, he runs 2.4 km anyways and he collapses and dies. What will be your reaction, upon knowledge of the MO's assessment? You will pump your fists in the air and say "Attaboy, MO! You're making a man out of him?"

    maybe what ed refers to back than his time, even during my time, flu and cough was the easiest excuse to skip training or chiong for MC... things change primarily during the SARS and H1N1 crisis....

    maybe thats the only reasoning i cld come to..

    might as well say hand pain and next day died because no MC how ?

    come on, thats not fair.... of course I will raise a stink if its my own child and I will deal with it when it happens ...... and just hope that imy kid does not draw THAT short end of the straw....

    I know you're drawing me into an argument .... which I will not participate in nor reply further my buddy.... but I will say this ...... putting/processing kids through a regime like NS is unfortunately no different from a production line.... damaged stuff and rejects happen and are an unavoidable cost ..... factory will of course try to keep it as low as possible ...... but zero casualty ? There is a cost to achieve zero default rate..... and its not cheap....... everything slows to a crawl to make sure there are NO damaged goods or QC is so low that EVERYTHING is passed ..... or live with the inevitable casulties, tough choices that society has to make, no ?

    Again you just pray and hope that your own makes it out a better person and in one piece.

    Thats life.... or how I see life in situations like this... try our best as frog parents knowing that not all the eggs we lay are going to make it to adulthood

    Out.

    I've read all your post reply from the beginning and just to share with you guys my two cent worth of thought. Even if the soldier is suffering from back ache or is currently sustaining an injury, firstly, he should had took a taxi all the way back home, at least up till his void deck or something. My guess that it's a book out day, so how heavy could his field pack be? Just dirty clothes? It's not like he's carrying a 7 pack item with the ET Stick and blade with 7 litre of water right? Well, before you start to judge me, I may not be a mortar soldier but I used to be a rifleman and i know how it feels like carrying a field pack, especially walking through the jungle of brunei, up and down the hills for days. From my opinion, I think it's his fault that this picture was taken and it's now exposed on the world wide web, he should had thought about it before he did this act. These are common sense, it's like going back to school. I smoke but i can't smoke while i'm wearing the school uniform. He is a soldier and a soldier who wears the SAF uniform represent OUR ARMY. Now that this has happened, what will the world think about our army?

    my time in national cadet corps (NCC) was tougher than SAF. We in NCC were like superstars in the school. imagine this :

    morning exercise , duck walk more 60 mins, if senior buah song, he will ask you to duck walk up 4 stories high and duck walk down again.

    push up, sit up must be 3 digits one..where got 20 pushup,....you wait long long...

    when gals see my butt , they will touch me, nice butt. no kidding...

    but that was like 22 yrs ago....
