MCeeing at an old friend's lair

I was at the Defense University this afternoon. My alumni, ANSARA, is organising a national level blood donation campaign, in anticipation of the upcoming Ramadhan fasting month. It was supposed to be kicked of at the former Armed Forces College. The official launching would be done tomorrow, at Jaya Jusco Klang by fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

Our President, YB Dato' Mukhriz Mahathir was scheduled to officiate this kick of at the Defense University. Despite his busy schedule, he made time to ensure that the campaign was kicked of properly.

Our host is none other than the Vice Chancellor himself, Lt. Jen. Dato' Wira Ir. Ismail Samion, TUDM. He was the first Armed Forces College Director and when the instution was alleviated to Defense University, Lt. Jen. Ismail was made the first Vice Chancellor.

I and Lt. Jen. Ismail go quite a bit. We were first introduced back in 2001, when Dato' Mukhriz made me the lead researcher and later, Director of Materials, for a national level aerospace congress. It was organised jointly by ANSARA and MIGHT. Lt. Jen. Ismail, then a Brig. Gen., was the Chief Engineer for the RMAF. So we worked closely for the congress.

We maintained cordial relationship since then. We met several times as aviation industry associates' offices and events.

Mej. Kalam, TUDM, who is Lt. Jen. Ismail's adjutant and also an instructor at the Defense Univeristy, asked me to MC the kick of. I told him it would be more appropriate if someone from the Defense Univerisity were to do it. However Mej. Kalam and the ANSARA organising committee insisted that I do it instead, since I was a familiar face to both ANSARA and the Defense University VC.

It was an honour for me. Lt. Jen. Ismail will be retiring soon. I wish him the best, after serving the armed forces for over thirty years and will be remembered in history as the first VC of the Malaysian Defense University. For all intent and purpose, Lt. Jen. Ismail is the pride of the Defense University.
