Capability and moral important for soldiers asman matters most The Tatmadaw’s principal duty is national defence, and Tatmadaw (Army), Tatmadaw (Navy) and Tatmadaw (Air), must guard the land, seas and air of the country with collective force. The duty of Tatmadaw (Navy) is to protect the country’s territorial waters. Every individual soldier must be dutiful every day in ensuring safety of surface and underwater territorial seas and enforcing the rule of law. In this world, man matters most as his involvement is needed in every sector and success can be secured only through his efforts.
Degree of individual talent is important. Competency and morale of servicemen is vital for the betterment of a military unity.
Uniqueness of the Kyaukphyu region is its land that is touching nthe sea. Hence local units have to protect the land and sea. They must be dutiful in properly serving the Union’s security duties.
The price is high whenever there is the neglect of duty even by an individual. Hence, soldiers should be dutiful and loyal to the country, Tatmadaw and people.
Properly shape future nation through joint efforts of government, Tatmadaw and people Tatmadaw joined hands with the people in restoring independence and has been shouldering its duties well to protect the Union while placing in force Our Three Main National Causes. With Union spirit in mind, it has exercised restraint to the most possible degree in settling ethnic armed conflicts that broke out due to political and ideological disagreements.
Officers, other ranks and families should understand the country’s objective conditions and should always have the military alertness and awareness and security outlook. Government, Tatmadaw and people will have to jointly shape a better future for the country. Soldiers must serve their assigned duties with pleasure. Their accomplishments will be recognized if they profoundly discharge their duties till success is achieved.
They must also service the interest of their units and the areas they are posted.
As the weather in Kyaukphyu is severe, they must have health awareness and must take preparatory measures to face unexpected natural disasters. As it is a remote place, they must establish and successfully run unit-own and manageable farming as a source of extra food supply.
