Quoting from Navy News online [it's online! but no pictures! and the font size is so small! i want paper copy. -sulk-], with reference to Navy Day -our 35th anniversary:
Addressing members of the Navy, CNV RADM Lui Tuck Yew, paid a stirring tribute to all the men and women who have served in the RSN: "An occasion such as this is almost like a family reunion. Our hearts, our hopes, our aims are one. To me what unites the Navy family, is a common desire for excellence and for our Navy to excel. Together, we can set high goals and lofty ideas and work as one in common pursuit of a shared destiny."
and to quote a certain RADM Kwek Siew Jin -grins- :
Joining the Navy is not just doing a job - it's a way of life that involves the whole family in every way.
i miss my Navy family. =)
