Sad news while on In-Camp Training

I have been back in green since Monday on ICT. Like many Singaporeans, I have been both anxious and worried about one of our NSmen who suffered a training accident in New Zealand, particularly after his medical condition deteriorated. Having been in uniform for the last four days, the news of his death last night is more acute, with the loss of a fellow NSman hitting closer to home.

National Service training has evolved to become more focussed over the years. The food quality has increased by leaps and bounds. We have become more conscious of safety and balancing it with realistic training. The quality of our personal equipment, uniforms etc. is better than before. In spite of the changes, one thing remains constant. That sense of camaraderie – regardless of rank, race or religion when we swap our civvies for uniform, even if it is only for a few weeks a year.

Rest in peace Aloysius Pang. Like all NSmen and NSF personnel who have passed on while on duty, we pray for strength for their families and loved ones through difficult times. And we stand with them.

  • Harder Truths:

    As I suspected the people in charge are saying the safety breach that killed Aloysius is somehow his own fault

    Refer to this article

    https://sg.yahoo.com/news/rsaf-sent-plane-new-zealand-repatriate-aloysius-pangs-body-ng-eng-hen-123154903.html

    This is the last paragraph

    … if any SAF soldier were to know of an unsafe practice, he should inform his commander or stop training and that there is no need to fear any disciplinary action for doing so….

    So… Indian becomes Malay and gahmen fault becomes dead NS man’s fault

    Not sure if Puthu Chery has “done” his “express NS” liow ???

    If so,…then ..”how lucky for him”…so “well connected” ..and “so Special treatment”

    Pappy and Mindef sure have “many standards” ( double standards and many sops to be review aand cois to form from another selet committee )

    What a great difference indeed !

    One (Oppie) MP who seems to be “called up” for so many ICTs.

    One (Oppie) MP who seems to be “a shooting target”….

    “While”…..One (Pappy) Mp

    …who dosen’t seem to be doing any ICT ???

    …but lately…seem more like “becoming an actor”…appearing in so many, many TV shows ????

    Both receiving same allowance…

    but “One had to take the pain to earn it”…while the other..is like ” doing wayang acting and por lan pars job” !!!

    WE,…Daft or NO DAFT ???

    hen is talking chicken. he either never served NSF or because of his ffffing portfolio as minister the SAF generals all yes sir yes sir to him so much that hen forgets there are two worlds in saf.

    one is the conscript. the other is the clown general. the conscript all he wants everyday when he wakes up is to avoid any duty, anything that is pure cheap labour. the clown general wakes up everyday is to read report about his next posting and promotion.

    the conscript couldn’t care less whether things are working or not since the chain of command is long and many along the chain just couldn’t be bothered about anything, whether NSF or full time jiak liao bee sign on.

    the clown general couldn’t care less whether things are working or not since he is constantly being posted elsewhere and promoted at the same time. he prefers to write very good to read articles to BS the hen who knows nothing.

    so for hen to talk chicken about reporting anything is to talk bull. both conscript and clown general are NEVER in the position to do anything right. that is why saf is as it is after so many years. actually more deaths per year in recent year alone.

    typical clown pap practice. put in hen who is a ffffing fake to manage something he has no clue, talking chicken and bull. HOW many has died while hen is in charge? WTF.

  • How Many More?:

    How many have died since NS was started?
    If on day one they published ALL training deaths and have public inquiry, we will not be in this situation today.
    How many more must die?
    There is obviously DEEP SEATED CULTURAL ISSUE in MINDEAF!
    Singh should ask for the figures to be published; or else the fallen have died in vain.
    What is the rate of training death compared to other armed forces?

    Don’t forget we have a very senior former SAF officer now working in SMRT that ferries thousand of people everyday. He was caught twice for drunk driving. Very dangerous indeed.

  • Dont jump the gun:

    Need to establish and uncover the root cause of the incident that resulted in Pangs death.

    Could be machine error could be human error. What if its Pang’s own negligence , we dont really know the reason yet ?

    Could be he doze off or lost focus due to lack of sleep or former night he drank alcohol. He has case history of caught driving after drinking alcohol. Anyhow how his psychology, any depression issue?

    Lets not any how speculate, else the traditional old chinese will probably anyhow say his gf 克夫 ….?

    Lets not jump the gun.
