They also shared their great personal experiences of serving in the Army and the satisfaction of a career in the Armed Forces, and asked them to prepare well as the Armed Forces only select the best.

The students were also enthused by the opportunity to meet Gallantry Award winners, who were a source of great motivation through their talks during the event.

An interesting talk was given by a woman officer, and the girl students and teachers were grateful for the awareness of various career opportunities in the Armed Forces.
