Chairman of the State Administration Council Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing Tuesday morning continuously attended the ceremony of choice of arms for the 64th Intake of the Defence Services Academy at DSA in Pyin Oo Lwin.
Also present at the ceremony were Commander-in-Chief (Navy) Admiral Moe Aung, Commander-in-Chief (Air) General Maung Maung Kyaw, senior military officers from the Office of the Commander-in Chief, Commander of Central Command Maj-Gen Ko Ko Oo, the DSA commandant and officials.
They chose the appropriate military arms of Tatmadaw (Army, Navy and Air) for the cadets depending on their outstanding performances in academy and military arts, hobbies and efforts. The Senior General and party inspected the cadet hostels, mess hall and kitchen. The commandant and officials conducted the Senior General and party around there.
During the inspection, the Senior General instructed officials to systematically supervise the turning out of qualified and talented cadets as the Defence Services Academy is a training ground for producing future leaders. It is necessary to systematically nurture them to have good practices on daily lifestyle for an officer. Necessary military equipment must be issued to each cadet in set periods and those cadets must undergo training to systematically reside at the hostels and use the equipment.
Kitchen officials need to give daily foods under systematic calculation to the cadets, and it is necessary to keep the kitchens neat and tidy and attended to their needs. The Senior General and party had lunch together with cadets at the mess hall of the Aung Zeya Battalion.
