SINGAPORE: More than 500 officer cadets were commissioned as officers at the SAFTI Military Institute on Saturday evening.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Teo Chee Hean reviewed the commissioning parade for 402 Army, 52 Navy and 50 Air Force officer cadets.

The parade marked the completion of 38 weeks of rigorous training, during which the officer cadets were put through realistic training scenarios to develop their combat, planning and leadership skills.

The newly commissioned SAF officers will assume operational, instructional or staff appointments.

Addressing the graduands at the parade, Mr Teo encouraged them to take responsibility of the training, morale and discipline of their men to ensure that they were operationally ready at all times.

"As their commander, make good soldiers out of them... win over the hearts and minds of your men, for it is the resilience and fighting spirit of our people that will ultimately make the difference," said Mr Teo.

Education Minister and Second Minister for Defence Ng Eng Hen, Members of Parliament, senior Ministry of Defence officials and SAF officers, as well as families and friends of the newly commissioned officers also attended the parade.
