I am sincerely happy for Jeremy Tan and his parents. ( see Breaking News on Family Wins Suit)
Jeremy and parents have endured too much!
PS: I have a message for Jeremy and his parents.
Jeremy, if you ever get to read this- get well soon, pal! Almost the whole of Singapore has been rooting for you.
You have done more than your share for Singapore.
Even though she has failed you miserably and does not deserve your sacrifice!
Singapore's Mindef has shamelessly tried to evade its responsibility to one of its own sons.
Jeremy,you may be just a storeman- one that seldom attracts much attention except from your superiors- but usually for all the wrong reasons!
Forgive them-they do not know who you really are.
To Mindef, you are just a digit to be deployed- to fill an Orbat chart.
But to your parents and friends, you are a human being. A son and buddy.
Despite what you have gone through, please know that not all of Singapore is bad. Not all of Singapore are like those who you now rightly hate.
Don’t give up hope for yourself. Don’t give up hope for Singapore.
The ministry classified Mr Tan's injuries as non-service related and stopped paying for his medical treatment at Tan Tock Seng Hospital from March 2007.
