Details :

Group Captain Virender Singh was commissioned in AMC and directly seconded to Air Force in Feb 61. The officer has a thoroughly professional outlook and has shown extreme compassion and concern for the patient placed under his care. He acquired Post Graduation in Aviation Medicine from Bangalore University in 1971 and General Medicine from PGI, Chandigarh in 1974.

While on the posted strength of a Command as Dy Principal Medical Officer, he contributed tremendously towards medical administration of all the stations and units under that

Command. He had been responsible to create working relationship with all the stations which was based on mutual trust and understanding. With his vast knowledge, the officer rendered invaluable professional guidance, advice and support to all wings and stations. He cheerfully accepted additional load of work and applied himself whole heartedly whenever the situation demanded.

On 08 Oct 89, when an Mirage crash took place, Gp Capt Singh on his own dashed to the crash site and was the first MO to reach there. After ascertaining that the accident was fatal, he, with the help of the concerned SMO and his staff skillfully organised on the spot first aid for casualties and helped in prompt transfer of emergency surgery cases to hospitals thus saving many valuable lives.

During his tenure in the command as DPMO, one Complex consisting of approximately 10,000 men and families did not have an authorised MI Room. Gp Capt Singh took it as a personal challenge to ensure that better medical facilities are provided to these personnel. He was instrumental in getting a Govt sanction for a 10 bed-SSQ and a medium SHO for the complex. His total dedication to his profession and compassion towards the patients are praiseworthy. He is worthy of emulation by other medical officers.

For his professionalism, hard work, initiative and total dedication to medical profession, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Gp Capt Virender Singh.
