Singaporean men from all walks of life who have served National Service are worried that PAP MPs Janil Puthucheary and Zainudin Nordin are feeling left out.

This is because these two PAP MPs did not serve NS and today is SAF Day, a day where men who have served NS feel somewhat proud that they did and share photos of themselves on Facebook.

One proud Singaporean son who spent two years of his life wearing leaves and eating combat ration, Kee Zho Peng, said: “I scared the two MPs feel left out. Because without serving National Service, you wouldn’t feel like a real man.”

And to help tide the two MPs over this period of feeling excluded from the world where real men inhabit, there are other Singaporean sons who have volunteered to help them feel included.

Ki Chiong Sua, a seller of NS equipment at Beach Road army market, said: “Should make them wear No. 4 and camo-cream the whole of SAF Day. I can donate.”

Others, however, were quick to point out that Janil Puthucheary and Zainudin Nordin are inspirational figures.

Bian Zho Peng, a Singaporean youth trying to evade NS, said: “Wah, never do NS can still be MP ah? Steady…”
