Another NSmen bites the dust as MINDEF halts all phy and endurance training annhilator47 Jun 12th, 08, 05:17 PM #1
The Ministry of Defence has declared a three-day time-out (12-14 June) on all physical and endurance training activities in the army, navy and air force after two young servicemen consecutively kicked the bucket over in a short span of merely two days.

A Regular Serviceman, Officer Cadet (OCT) Lam Jia Hao Clifton, 20, a pilot trainee with the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF), collapsed at about 5:45pm on 11 Jun 08 while undergoing jungle orientation training in Brunei.

A day earlier, 20-year-old army recruit Andrew Cheah Wei Siong died after he fainted while taking part in a two-kilometre walk training activity on Pulau Tekong.

Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean said the time-out will allow the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) to review and re-focus on training activities to ensure that proper procedures are in place before training resumes. -CNA

This is getting so

precisely to prevent a psychologically significant no 3 from happening, MINDEF has issued a directive halting all physical activities/trg for 3 days... bet during these 3 days NSmen won't be doing anything physical at all...
