|Details :|| |
Flight Lieutenant Rajinder Kumar Sood (10357) was commissioned in the Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical) Branch of the Indian Air Force in July, 1966. Early in his career he acquitted himself creditably as the Armament Officer of an operational Wing.
Since April, 1972, he has been serving as the Armament Officer of an operational Squadron. He has streamlined the working of the Armament Section and his efforts have greatly improved the squadron's operational potential.
When the Squadron was equipped with a new type of aircraft, its serviceability state suffered a serious suffered set back on account of non-availability of a vital item required to be used with the type of ejection seat fitted in the aircraft. Flight Lieutenant Sood promptly embarked upon a project to fabricated the item from the resources available at the station. Soon he produced a substitute for imported component, which has saved substantial foreign exchange and has removed a bottle-neck to aircraft serviceability.
For consistently rendering distinguished service of a high order, Flight Lieutenant Rajinder Kumar Sood is awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal.
