Boyfriend's growing confidence and tales of camaraderie spur her to join the SAF
Former communications executive Loh Ying and her boyfriend had dated for only four months before they had to be apart when he enlisted for national service in 2010.
His life in green, however, not only brought them closer but also changed her life in a way she never expected.
Yesterday, she became one of 307 newly minted Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) officers at a commissioning parade at Safti Military Institute.
The 24-year-old also graduated top in physical training in her cohort of field artillery cadets.
