Army Chief gets US award

, by indianmilitaryveterans



Army Chief Gen Bikram Singh has been honoured with the Legion of Merit, a US military award given for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements.

The award figures sixth in the order of precedence of the US military decorations. Worn around the neck with a purple ribbon, the award was received by Gen Singh from US Army Chief Gen Raymond Odierno on December 5 during his visit to the US.

The US Army’s website states that Gen Singh had helped the Indian Army to become the second largest trainer of Afghan national security forces after the US. A “full honour ceremony” was organised for the purpose at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall near Washington during which the 3rd Infantry Regiment - the oldest active duty outfit of the US Army and known as the Old Guard - was on parade in full colonial era ceremonial attire.

So far, the honour has been bestowed upon four Indian service chiefs - Field Marshal KM Cariappa, Gen Rajendra Sinhji, Gen SM Srinagesh and Admiral JL Cursetji.

During his visit to the US, Gen Singh discussed the US-India defence relationship with senior US military leadership.
