Why did you choose to join the RSAF?

I've always been fascinated by the Air Force since I was little. And so I chose to sign on, not merely because I was interested in airplanes, but because the RSAF offered me something that was truly different, exciting and purposeful – a career which made me proud.

What's special about being an ADSS?

In most vocations, candidates generally have to focus on a particular skill. But as an ADSS, I would say that I got the best of both worlds. That's because, besides being technically trained to operate some of the world's most advanced ground-based air defence weapons, I get to be in the thick of the action as I deploy them in almost any terrain or condition.

How do you cope with being out in the field?

I love the outdoors, so being out in the field is where I have the most fun. I get to deploy the RSAF's sophisticated air defence weapons, take part in combat drills, as well as utilise the various field survival skills that I've picked up over the years.
