SAF Recruits Get Laptops

Our army recruits now get laptops when they enlist for their Basic Military Training (BMT)! Yeah, you heard me right. 2,600 enlistees were issued laptop computers in December at the start of their BMT.

Read the full story here.

Initially I was sour about our soldiers getting King Koil mattresses, huge ass cupboards, water heaters, lighter rifles, etc... But this takes the cake! What next? iPhones for recruits?!

  6. Hey Manuel! Thanks for coming to Dray's birthday party. Means a lot bro!

    Well. soldiers have been known to complain to their MP's. STOMP would be a good alternative to be hated by the commanders and camp mates alike...
