BG (Ret) Winston Toh
When we celebrated the SAF Veterans League’s 25th Anniversary in 2015, we published a book of short stories from our veterans. We encouraged our veterans to share their personal stories of their service to the nation for the benefit of all Singaporeans for generations to come.

Their 25 stories, including some light-hearted ones, were published in a book appropriately entitled ‘Old Soldiers Don’t Fade Away, They Tell Stories’.

This segment under ‘My Story’ will progressively feature excerpts from the 25 stories in the book which is available from the SAFVL Secretariat.

I encourage and urge more of our veterans to share their stories so that we can continue to motivate, inspire and engage Singaporeans young and old.
