Congratulations Vance!

September 19, 2015


On 19 Sep, 4196 trained soldiers from BMTC and 1st Battalion, Singapore Guards (1 GDS), graduated from their Basic Military Training (BMT) and tossed their caps at the National Stadium after their gruelling 24km night route march.

It was a proud moment for friends and family members of the soldiers who came to watch their graduation parade. The graduation parade after their 9 weeks of BMT closes their BMT milestone and begins another new chapter in their national service.

The Reviewing Officer for this Graduation Parade was Chief Of Army, BG Melvyn Ong. The Parade Commander was CPT Joachim Chen and the Parade Regimental Sergeant Major was 2WO Terry Ng.


One of our ex- cadet, REC Boo Yu Xuan, stood proudly in the parade square. Awarded the Best Recruit from Kestrel Company, he describes his mood on winning the award, “I am constantly looking forward to new challenges as only through such trials can we improve ourselves. I’ve learnt more about perseverance through this experience and despite tougher training ahead, I’m quite excited for it!”
