KARGIL: VIJAY DIVAS \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Dear Veterans \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Dated : 15 Jul 2012 \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ 1. Efforts of IESM and other ESM organizations and events in the recent past in the country have brought focus on the “Soldier”. Strong Military Strong Nation are some of slogans the youth and youth organisations are chanting. It is a good sign. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ 2. Strong Military Means Strong Men and Materials including weapons, eqpt stores etc to face the Security Challenges both external and internal. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ 3. The Govts of the day for the past 63 years paid less attention than required to qualitatively and quantitatively improve the Military strength. It is time that the people of the country become aware of the state of Military and participate in making the Govt take measures to strengthen the Military to the desired levels. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ “The Soldier Protects What?, Guards Whom ? A piece of terrain!, barren, inhospitable, worthless?\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ NO! For the love of his country, and countrymen, his motherland He protects, Her citizens, He guards, His Karma, He performs- with honour and pride, for your tomorrow He sacrifices His Today” \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ 4.
