|Details :|| |
Wing Commander Devendra Singh Rawat (16242) F (P) is on the posted strength of a Missile squadron from 27 Mar 2000 as the Commanding Officer.
On 26 Jan 2001 a devastating earthquake rocked the entire region of Kutch at 0846 hrs. Many houses and buildings collapsed at Air Force Station Bhuj, causing loss of life and property. Wg Cdr Rawat's house also suffered severe damage. Unmindful of his personal losses and welfare of his family, he immediately commenced action and worked restlessly for days and nights together.
He and his squadron teams took on the rescue operations for the first 48 hours. He was instrumental in organisation and management of the Admin Control Centre (ACC). Right from providing for the initial accommodation in the form of tents to the personnel, management and distribution of the relief material to the evacuation of causalities and families, he successfully led every body around him in the ACC. Being second in command, he shouldered all his responsibilities with a sense of devotion and selfless attitude. His experience and leadership motivated the entire team and he proved to be an inspiration to everyone around him. His vision, ability to plan in future, infectious positive attitude is praiseworthy.
For his exemplary service, selfless attitude and inspiring leadership, and distinguished service of a high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wing Commander Devendra Singh Rawat.
