Magazine Description

In this issue

It has been an intense and exhilarating time for us recently, commemorating not just Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Day on 1st July 2018 but, commemorating our nation’s 53rd birthday on 9th August 2018. Here, all Singaporeans come together to celebrate, enjoying the independence that had been so hard won for us by a strong and vigilant SAF, who had worked hard to keep Singapore safe and defend our sovereignty. However, amidst the increasingly complex and volatile external environment, we need to be watchful and alert to potential threats around us, one of the more challenging ones being that of terrorism. As our Minister for Defence, Dr Ng Eng Heng said at the Overseas Service Medal Presentation Ceremony on 27th Jul 2018, “The battle against terrorism for the SAF will be a long one, and we must be prepared to go the distance. Our strategy against terrorism remains the same since the 9/11 attacks. It recognises that terrorism needs to be neutralised at its source and in our own backyard.”
