|Details :|| |
Squadron Leader Samuel Simon was commissioned in the Administrative Branch of the Indian Air Force in December 1964. He had held variety of appointments which include Assistant Administrative Officer, Security Counter Intelligence Officer at an operational Base, Assistant Provost Marshal and Staff Officer.
At Bombay, where the Officer was posted as Assistant Provost Marshal, he was instrumental in ensuring smooth and efficient movement of a large number of road convoys, especially relating to the setting up of Guided Weapons units. It was again during this tenure that Sqn Ldr Simon played a leading role in apprehending some personnel involved in smuggling activities. This was an operation beset with great personal danger and the officer carried it out with imagination and utter disregard of the risk and threat that his family and himself were faced with.
Having gained in experience, particularly with regard to security and investigative operations, the officer was specially selected and posted as Assistant Provost Marshal at Bagdoara, at a time when the general law and order atmosphere to the region had deteriorated. His tact, sense of involvement and mature judgment came in handy towards establishing cordial relations between the Air Force and the local population and he contributed substantially in enhancing the image of the Air Force in a difficult situation.
In all his recent appointments, as Staff Officer to Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Western Air Command, Staff Officer to Vice Chief of Air Staff and presently as ADC to Chief of the Air Staff, he continued to display exemplary devotion to duty and a forthright and positive attitude.
During all the 18 years of his commissioned service for having rendered dedicated service of a high order the President is pleased to award VISHISHT SEVA MEDAL to Squadron Leader Samuel Simon.
