I'm from the UK, I guessed it was National Service just because you only said you were going for a two year stint.
I have spoke to a few people online from where you are from and they all say it's a great experience if a tough one at times.
Knowledgeable of you indeed.
Bye Starship, give Kim Jong-Un hell.
Oh yeah I will. Weird, I woke up today with a single recollection from my dream: CamillePunk Humbled
. Yeah, I was like WTF as well. Watch your back haha
No offense, but I've never understood the point to Singapore's national service. Where do you even go for instance? What's the reasoning behind it? An extremely wealthy city state in South East Asia to me isn't facing much risk of invasion. Are there really that many guards needed for Changi airport?
Where do we go? Nowhere - most of the time. We stay in Singapore unless we travel overseas for training missions. The Singapore military is a deterrent.
What's the reasoning? That's simple. We are a predominantly Chinese and tiny state in right smack in the middle of a Muslim-dominated region - Malaysia, Indonesia... countries much, much larger than ours. Also, as you said, we are extremely wealthy for our tiny size - we are merely a city. Therefore, it might be tempting for our neighbours to invade us purely due to our wealth.
Furthermore, it is the belief of our national leaders - have you heard of Lee Kuan Yew - that economic progress can only come after national security is achieved - therefore it is important to build a strong and technologically advanced military to protect our national interest.
What job will you be doing in the military?
No idea, I've to go through an eight week initial training stage before being posted to a job. I am aiming to be an officer in a leadership role.
Good Luck with everything, always enjoyed reading your posts you will be missed.
My pleasure indeed.
