Wing Commander JS Boparai was commissioned on 17 Jun 72 in the Logistics Branch. He has been the Senior Logistics Officer (SLO) of a Base Repair Depot and Chief Logistics Officer of an equipment depot before being appointed SLO at Air Force Station, Halwara in Sep 93.

On assuming duties he recognised the pivotal role that Logistics play in the overall scheme of support to the combat units. He ensured that the spares were provided on as required basis. The squadrons were thus able to achieve their tasks and maintain excellent operational preparedness. It was partly due to his efforts that the entire Base was able to produce 100% serviceability and fly all aircraft on 06 Mar 96. In fact in both the years that he was the SLO, all units at this base achieved 100% serviceability on more than a few occasions.

Wg Cdr Boparai designed a cost effective drop tank storage system, which ensured safe storage, saved storage space and provided for easy maintainability. The Logistics section was assessed as highly satisfactory by the Directorate of Air Staff Inspection in 1995.

For distinguished services of a high order, the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wg Cdr JS Boparai.
