Back in 1977, forty-nine young officer cadets graduated from the Officer Cadet School as Second Lieutenants. We went through tough training and field exercises together as a fighting unit. Our bonds and camaraderie lasted through the test of time. We kept in touch by getting together over the years. Last night, we celebrated our 40th anniversary.
In this get-together, we also invited our instructors to the function. We had thirty-nine turning up at Casa Verde at the Singapore Botanic Garden. It was memorable night of laughter and happy chatting. Most of us are already 60 years old or older. We remembered some of the events that happened some 40 years back. It was surreal and I could visualise myself with this group of friends back in those days. It was that meaningful, this 40th Anniversary.
