Good soldiers have to cultivate the spirit of how they will accomplish the duties assigned in a relentless manner. What is important is that they will be able to perform their duties successfully if they constantly follow and adhere to military order and discipline, said Commanderin- Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at a meeting with the trainees from the Warrant Officer and Sergeant Training School at the military appointment hall of the Army’s Officer Training School (Bahtoo) yesterday morning.
Regarding the computer diploma course for sergeants/clerks, the trainees need to systematically learn the course as it enables them to deal with office work and use the computer efficiently. In building a standard army, it is also essential to be skilled in office work. In doing so, you need to be able to use grammatically correct spellings and alphabets of Myanmar in accordance with the staff duty. You must work hard on the training course in order to be skilled in office work so that it can facilitate the well connections between general staff, adjutant and quartermaster like three pinions.
As for promoting the Tatmadaw’s capability and training, building a standard army requires trainings for troops to improve their quality and skills. Armed forces from the international community are also training themselves systematically to raise their capability. With the high ability of individuals from the beginning, then it is necessary for platoons, companies, battalions and then the whole Tatmadaw to try to raise their capability. It is required to make regular practices by correctly conducting daily trainings. For the capacity building of the Tatmadaw, such measures must be taken such as opening of technical refresher courses under the arrangement of respective military units and conducting of on-ground military trainings at respective training schools.
With regard to life of Tatmadawmen, the Senior General urged the servicemen to discharge military duty till their retirement in designated term as they joined the Tatmadaw on their choice. The Tatmadaw is fulfilling the needs of food, clothing and shelter, health, education and social sectors of servicemen during their in-service terms. Arrangements are being made to resettle those who dutifully took out the military tasks without any punishment during their in-service terms and the retired servicemen at the housings at fair prices. Moreover, plans are being implemented for providing accommodation and conducting vocational training courses for those who sacrificed limbs and organs of body. In addition, the Tatmadaw arranges accommodation for above 70 years old war veterans, who face lack of food, clothing and shelter due to various reasons, at the War Veterans’ Homes for the Aged. The Senior General urged them to accept the good legacies in line with the 12 fine traditions of the Tatmadaw and hand down these fine traditions to subordinates.
