Singapore Armed Forces
The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) is the military arm of the Total Defence of Singapore, as well as the military component of the Ministry of Defence. The SAF is an integrated armed force that comprises the Army, the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN).
The mission of SAF is to protect the sovereignty, territorial integrity and interests of Singapore. Its role is to deter potential aggressors, and should deterrence fail, to secure a swift and decisive victory.
The Army museum will preserve the heritage of the Singapore Army, as well as honour the contributions and celebrate the experiences of our soldiers. It hopes to capture and tell the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
