S'pore Defence Minister meets NSmen

SINGAPORE: Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen visited the Infantry Training Institute (ITI) at Jurong Camp II on Monday, interacting with National Servicemen (NSmen) for the first time since he took over the defence portfolio. The visit was hosted by Chief of Army Major-General Ravinder Singh. As part of the visit, Dr Ng was briefed on the latest developments in ITI, including how ITI has updated its training pedagogies for National Service unit training through improved technologies and processes. This has also translated into more effective and efficient training methods at the individual level where NSmen are refreshed and revalidated on their combat skills during their In-Camp Training (ICT). Dr Ng also visited the 724th Guards Battalion on its first day of ICT at the SAFTI 100m range and joined in the combat proficiency shoot with the unit's NSmen.
