From enlistment day to the passing out parade, the latest video
project spearheaded by the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) promises to
document all the action that goes down in a Basic Military Training
For nine weeks, 15 young men from different backgrounds came
together for the rite of passage that every Singaporean son must
experience - BMT. And now you can follow their journey of
self-discovery on the Web!
Said Mr Donald Chew, Head of Defence Information Television, on
the series titled Every Singaporean Son: "We hope to get people to
understand more about BMT. For the pre-enlistees, they are entering
a new phase of their lives. Hopefully, through this series, they
can get a better understanding of what's to come so they can
prepare themselves mentally and physically.
"And for their parents, hope to allay their concerns and assure
them that their sons are well taken care of in the Singapore Armed
Forces (SAF) during their National Service."
