NS Is A Part of Singapore Identity

National Service is a part of Singapore identity.

Since Singapore began citizen conscription in 1967, NS has become ‘a universal rite of passage for every male citizen’, no matter what their race, religion or social background.

Everyone stands on an equal footing. We live, eat and train together. We overcome challenges as one unit, and help one another along. We forge enduring friendship and camaraderie through shared trials and tribulations.
