5 months ago What were you doing at 0400 today? Most of you would be asleep. Some of you are awake early getting after it in the gym or on your desk. But few have been up all night making sure we all have the freedom to choose how we want to spend our 4am’s.
Because 78 years ago today at approximately 0415hrs, 17 Mitsubishi G3M Neil bombers of the Imperial Japanese Navy breached Singapore Airspace & carried out bombing runs across multiple locations such as Chinatown, Raffles Place & Keppel Harbour (Mention these places & all we can think of is our beautiful city skyline). Singapore was attacked for the first time & the next 4 years would be one of our nation’s darkest. 61 people lost their lives that day with hundreds more injured.
But today, 5.6 Million Singaporeans sleep soundly at night because of a special few men & women that work tirelessly behind the scenes. Never forget why we don on the uniform be it green or blue because “The Price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance.” Photo Credits:
