Before we close shop for the year, I would like to extend to all of you my best wishes for 2014.
To all the servicemen and servicewomen whom I met this year, thank you for patiently taming my curiosity, for taking me into your confidence by sharing more about the work you do and for walking the talk.
It is always a joy being able to see military units from Malaysia and Singapore firsthand and one is aware when watching a military demo that many hands working behind the scenes are often critical to the show's success. Your personal contributions to the demos I have witnessed have always been uppermost on my mind and I thank you deeply for all that you have done, even though we may not have crossed paths directly. The unprecedented number of study visits conducted in 2013 has left me with quiet admiration and a deep sense of respect for the profession of arms - both sides of the Causeway.
To my mentors, thank you for helping me join the dots. Let's just leave it at that. :-)
Am pleased with the level of sensemaking we achieved this year. The "we" includes contributions from blog readers who wrote in with ideas, suggestions and constructive feedback. I appreciate the time and effort each of you took to frame your thoughts and pen your correspondence.
The bar will be lifted even higher in 2014. Count on it.
