Re:Doing the Right Thing!
I am not referring to any case that is before our courts for that would constitute “sub judice” and anyone making inappropriate public comments may be deemed to be guilty of contempt of court.
With hand on heart, I feel that it is an honour for any young man to serve his country especially in the prime of his youth. I have done it and many who came before and after me did too!
On the same token, Singapore should feel honored to help or compensate adequately any person who has suffered as a direct or indirect result of this service.
There should be no splitting of hairs and the resorting to fine prints about what does or does not constitute actual service.
For the sakes of all our fine young men past, present and future, will Singapore just do the Right Thing!
