Squadron Leader Joginder Singh (5167) was commissioned in the Logistics Branch of the Indian Air Force in August, 1956. During his training period, he acquitted himself creditably and was given independent charge as a Unit Equipment Officer less than three years later. Thereafter, he served as the Officer in-charge of the Provisioning Cell at a Command Headquarters. During the IndoPakistan conflict, 1965, he was the Senior Equipment Officer at one of the most heavily committed operational airfields. In addition to these duties, he was also detailed as Unit Passive Air Defence and Additional Air Field Defence Officer. Although his airfield was subjected to heavy attacks, damage was immediately and readily rectified by efficient execution of all available passive air defence measures. A planned attack by a group of dropped para Commandos was completely broken up by the airfield Defence Organisation working in conjunction with other forces, resulting in the total annihilation of the enemy force. For his work during these operations, he was mentioned-in-despatches.

Since August, 1969, Squadron Leader Joginder Singh has been serving as Assistant Air Attaché (Logistics) at our Embassy in the USA. He has performed his duties with admirable efficiency.

Squadron Leader Joginder Singh has shown extreme devotion to duty and remarkable output despite severe pressure. He is awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal for the distinguished service of a high order rendered by him.
