Details :

Wing Commander Ramamoorthy Vijay Kumar was attached to Air Force Element of the IPKF since Oct 87.

Wg Cdr Kumar has been actively involved in flying duties in connection with the Indian Forces in Srilanka (OP PAWAN). He and his crew were involved in the initial buildup of forces in Jaffna in early Oct 87. They operated for eight consecutive days without adequate rest, airlifting artillery and tanks to Jaffna and Trincomalee. It was due to his personal rapport with the local Army and airport authorities that the aircrew could be provided with some sort of administrative support at the airfields. During Oct 87, Wg Cdr Kumar flew a total of 73 hours on Gajraj aircraft in connection with various aspects of the operations.

For his devotion to duty, excellent professionalism and ability to inspire his colleagues in adverse conditions, the President is pleased to award Yuddh Seva Medal to Wg Cdr RV Kumar
