Young soldiers are no strawberry generation says the Chief Commando Officer | The Straits Times

The Commander of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Special Operations Task Force has commented on his belief that when it comes to training, the younger generation has it harder. Some dismiss them as a “strawberry generation” but Colonel Kenny Tay has observed that they have to wear heavier body armor, train with more powerful weapons, and walk and ruck for longer distances. He also says they have his respect, due to their intense training drawing them closer together and creating a better sense of comradeship.
