Wg CdrJogendra Singh Sisodia7696 F(P)Award Date Announced 26 Jan 1985
Details :

Wing Commander Jogendra Singh Sisodia has been flying fighter aircraft since 1963. During his service of over 20 years, he has flown Vampire, Mystere, Marut and Jaguar aircraft. He is fully operational on all these types and has been assessed as an above-average pilot. He is an 'A-2' flying instructor with Master Green Instrument Rating on fighters. He has held the post of Flight Commander in Marut and Jaguar Squadrons.

Wg Cdr Sisodia took over command of a newly formed Jaguar Squadron and accomplished the task of not only moving the Squadron to a new location but converting the entire Squadron on to a new generation attack aircraft. He addressed himself to this task with single-minded effort and exceptional devotion to duty with the result that the Squadron was able to achieve 'fully operational' status within a period of just one year. This notable achievement significantly enhanced the operational potential of the IAF. Wg Cdr Sisodia completed his tenure in January, 1984, handing over to his successor not only an exceptionally potent operational unit, but also one without any accidents. Throughout his service, Wg Cdr Sisodia has displayed exceptional devotion to duty, high qualities of leadership and high professional skill both in the air and on the ground during peace and war.

For his exceptional devotion to duty, high professional skill and qualities of leadership, the President is pleased to award Vayu Seva Medal to Wing Commander Jogendra Singh Sisodia
