    The Woman Who Wears Many Hats



    Taking on different roles allow her the flexibility to grow

    What may be perceived by many to be stringent was in actual fact what gave CPT Julianah Jamal the polar opposite-flexibility. A career in the Singapore Army, that is.

    Within a short span of five years, she functioned as a Team Manager in the SAF Sports Association Football Team, pursued a Masters in Counseling, attended the Guards Conversion Course and is now a Battalion Logistics Officer. All thanks to the recommendation of her ex-colleague in the Institute of Mental Health and her own gutsy spirit, CPT Julianah has obtained a wide yet unique variety of experiences.

    When she first joined the Singapore Army, she was part of the team responsible for the supply chain ensuring that combatants have sufficient logistics support. Two years later, CPT Julianah decided to embark on something different in her career with the Singapore Army, by applying for an appointment with the Guards Formation.

    In a different environment, CPT Julianah was still involved in logistics _ the only difference was in the mode of operations. She shared that the Guards Formation allowed her to participate in more military exercises and gave her greater exposure. With great enthusiasm, she added, "I prefer being on the ground where the action is! It suits my personality more." CPT Julianah's exposure to a different work environment in the Guards Formation helped her understand the roles that the Singapore Army's sub-units play, and how they integrate to achieve the Singapore Army's mission. Equipped with a deeper understanding of these two vocations, CPT Julianah is convinced that it has benefitted her on both personally and professionally.

    This confident woman explains that in the Singapore Army, officers are rotated in a timely manner to different jobs to enhance their learning experience and gain exposure. But more than just job rotational opportunities, she is also able to fulfill other adventurous pursuits like the Basic Airborne Course. "I like how jumping off a plane 10,000 feet from the ground, is also part of my work – that looking down and knowing that the only thing stopping you from body planting yourself is a parachute." said CPT Julianah. The next course she's looking to conquer would be the Combat Skills course involving a 32-kilometre route march, crossing rivers and weapon handling tests.

    On whether she is satisfied with her career choice, CPT Julianah flashed a wide smile and said, "Right now, I don't see any other organisation that would make me feel this happy. I like the flexibility, where I don’t have to stay in one appointment for too long. It keeps me going."

    F-15SG fighter pilot Capt. Nah Jinping




    Capt. Nah is a 10 year veteran of the RSAF with more than 400 flying hours under her belt. This includes over 300 hours in the F-15SG. She holds the distinction of being the first and only woman F-15SG fighter pilot. When asked why she had chosen to fly the F-15SG after earning her fighter pilot wings, “an affinity,” she smiled.

    Jinping did not envision herself becoming a fighter pilot while growing up. Her dream was to pursue a university education aboard and she decided that a scholarship was needed to achieve that aim. One day she went to a mall in the heart of Singapore city to explore her options at a career fair. Life as a teacher with the Ministry of Education was boring for her, and being a Foreign Service officer with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was not her cup of tea either. It was the third stop at the Ministry of Defense that caught her attention. Luck was with the RSAF as the first person she spoke to was an Air Force pilot. Being an outdoor enthusiast, the training to become a military pilot sounds adventurous to her. And she was sold on the idea after a joy ride aboard a Singapore Youth Flying Club DA-40 over the island later.

    Four years of her military life was spent pursuing studies in the United Kingdom and United States. She then went on to fly the Northrop T-38 Talon with the United States Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command (AETC) after graduating with a masters degree. Although she got her choice to fly the Boeing F-15SG, Jinping had actually wanted to become a helicopter pilot, her initial choice was another Boeing aircraft – the CH-47D Chinook twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter. By becoming a helicopter pilot, she will be able to participate in Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) missions that Singapore had been called upon to support over the years, such as the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami which left a deep impression on her.

    However, as she underwent her nine-month Basic Wings Course at Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base in Western Australia, it became clear to her that she was destined for the fighter pilot track and she worked hard to win a spot in the Fighter Wings course.

    The Unconventional Commander Who Values People and Life-long Learning



    LTA Rydia Liang

    When she was the only employee managing all conference-related activities in the Asia- Pacific region for a leading global commodities provider, LTA Rydia Liang dealt with several high flyers in the oil, gas and precious metals industries and created plenty of opportunities for herself. But none of that was enough to keep her in that job.

    An appointment as Platoon Commander in the Singapore Army's Combat Engineers Formation granted her a strong sense of purpose. LTA Rydia saw that the Singapore Army was an organisation that truly appreciates its greatest asset – its people. "The Singapore Army is both a people-oriented and task-focused organisation." shared LTA Rydia with great enthusiasm.

    With life-long learning and continuous improvement as two key career criteria for LTA Rydia, she was delighted the Singapore Army offered numerous developmental courses and opportunities to aid in deepening knowledge and sharpening skills. In her case, LTA Rydia successfully completed the Officer Cadet Course, Engineer Officer Cadet Course and the Engineer Commander Course.

    The seven-week long Explosive Ordnance Disposal Commander Course (EODCC) became one of LTA Rydia's most memorable experiences as it kept her at the edge of her seat. LTA Rydia was expected to pass three theoretical tests as well as a series of practical tests. One of the most challenging tests for her was when she was required to identify numerous explosives ordnances with acute accuracy as any minor slip-up will cause her to be out of course. Running long distances in an Explosive Ordnance Disposal suit while clearing an obstacle course were also tasks she had to complete as part of her course.

    On the topic of the Army being male-dominated and often mistaken as being unsuitable for women, LTA Rydia appreciates that the Singapore Army understands the different physical and psychological aspects of both genders and that its people equally. She said, "(In-service personnel) should be pro-active in correcting the general misconception that the Army is catered for males. We should focus on educating the public that both genders can and will make significant contributions to the organisation."

    Aside from the Singapore Army providing LTA Rydia with life-long learning and continuous improvement opportunities, it has also granted her time to pursue her personal interests. As an avid diver who has clocked approximately 160 diving trips, LTA Rydia’s structured work-rest training rotation timetable allows her to take days off on low-key periods for her underwater expeditions.

    LTA Rydia candidly shares that she would not trade this job for the world and said, "At the end of it all, investing in people is much more enriching for me than investing in finances."
