Foreign workers praised for being part of SAF protecting S’pore

They are the sixth pillar in total defence.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who spent two years reluctantly serving the nation, have come out to praise foreign workers.

This after foreign workers were seen helping to turn Lim Chu Kang road into a runway for aeroplanes to use like real soldiers serving the Singapore Armed Forces.

One local, Zho Peng, said he is glad Singapore can function with the presence of foreign workers: “NS for locals, now NS for foreigners also. Huat ah.”

Other Singaporeans said they were heartened by this sight.

Another local, Kai Xing, said: “As the sixth pillar of total defence, these foreigners can do more to protect Singapore’s interests.”

“Building buildings is hard enough already, so what is letting them serve National Service as well and giving them the right to bear arms?”

“So simple. I show you.”
