A National Serviceman earned widespread praise online after a photo of him helping an elderly woman cross the road safely went viral on social media.

Netizens responding to the picture praised the NSF and thanked his parents for raising him right. Netizens also called on the Singapore Armed Forces to give the NSF an award or commendation for his kind act:
