Singapore Armed Forces’ Basic Military Training Centre on 5 January 2016, posted a picture of this recruit. It was his first day in National Service.
When the picture gained a lot of attention, SAF deemed that the picture was inappropriate and deleted it.
Earlier today, Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) posted a picture of one of its recruits first day at its Basic Rescue Training Centre. The SCDF recruit had no western food and ice-cream, but he had a beaming smile.
SCDF captioned the picture: In SCDF, our recruits look forward to being part of the Life Saving Force. Here’s to a fulfilling National Service! ???? #ANationofLifesavers.
A few minutes later, SCDF added another hashtag: #wearbluenotfeelblue.
