Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing met with maritime and aviation youths at Zeyathiri Beikman in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
Speaking at the meeting, the Senior General called upon the youths to work hard to become good citizens and make all efforts to repay the gratitude of the State, as they continue to develop themselves.
“As you were born and grew up in this country, you have to prove that you are good citizens of the country. In so doing, you have to work with a constructive attitude, instead of a destructive attitude,” said the Senior General. Youths will have to shoulder the duties of the State and the people while walking on the long journey of life as they move forward, he said.
Youths should make the best use of their young ages, as they are mentally and physically strong. At the ceremony, the Senior General presented gifts to the young trainees, who returned gifts to him as a token of their respect. On behalf of the trainees, Ma Myat Nandar Htwe and Ma Hnin Thazin spoke words of thanks.
Before the event, the maritime and aviation youths viewed weapons produced by the Tatmadaw, different designs of costumes worn by Tatmadawmen (Army, Navy and Air), communication devices produced by the Tatmadaw, scale models of warships produced by the Tatmadaw (Navy), naval equipment, scale models of helicopters, costumes and equipment used by pilots displayed in Zeyathiri Beikman, and flight simulators. Then the officials replied to questions. In the evening, the trainees visited the Defence Services Museum in Nay Pyi Taw and studied the Tatmadaw (Army, Navy and Air) exhibits and were led through the exhibits by officials, according to the Office of the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services. —MNA
