National Service – not a priviledge for locals

Lian He Zao Bao in 2009 also featured an article on second generation PRs who have completed national service. The trend is that there is an increasing presence of PRs serving national service. It will not be surprising to find a Caucasian or a Japanese serving national service with fellow local born Singaporeans. The recent issue about Ogawa Ryuju , a Japanese PR who had his citizenship revoked due to a technicality error shows that foreigners who has spent their lives here can identify themselves with this country.
