2013 JULY Overseas Service Medal Presentation Ceremony, Operation Blue Ridge, SAFTI MI, Singapore

19 July 2013 Friday

Afghanistan No Frontline, No Neutral Space.

An invitation by the Army Information Centre to witness the giving out of the Overseas Service Medal for the SAF Operation Blue Ridge (OBR) in Afghanistan by the guest of honour Minister of Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen and a preview of the OBR exhibition.

The Overseas Service Medal Presentation Ceremony was held at the SAFTI MI, the family members of the soldiers involved in OBR were also invited for the ceremony.

A nice Operation Blue Ridge exhibition preview and hopefully the SAF will include the real MRAP used for the operation.

I have included the schedule for the OBR exhibition as provided by the  Army Information Centre which will make it’s round to the heartland to showcase the SAF involvement in Afghanistan.

Many thanks to the Army Information Centre and facebook team for the invite.
