Jammu: The Tiger Division of Army on Friday organised “Weapon and Equipment Display” here at General Zorawar Auditorium.
The display of Weapons and Equipment was witnessed by large numbers of people across all the age groups and genders.
The youth seemed to be highly motivated to see the military equipment and also to get a feel of it.
“Some of them even declared they would like to join the army,” Col Devendra Anand, Jammu based PRO Ministry of Defence said.
He said besides the magnificent weapons on display, a stall showcasing various options for the youth to join the Armed Forces was also a centre of attraction.
Military display of weapons has been a methodology to not only showcase but it also gives a sense of pride and faith in the custodians of national security, in the heart and minds of the locals, he added.
Major General Sanjay Singh, the General Officer Commanding, Tiger Division while inaugurating the one-day event said, such displays, besides providing exposure to people, also contributed in bringing the uniformed fraternity closer to civilians, whose faith would prompt them later, to encourage their children to take up the army as a career option.
The Tiger Division has the unique characteristics of being located in areas around some of the most thickly populated region of the state and regularly conduct events that bolster public support which has time and again proved to be the critical force multiplier for them time and again.
