Jammu: The Northern Command Chief Lt Gen B S
Jaswal, who on Friday hanged his uniform after 40 years of service
in the Army, appreciated courage of the troops engaged in
safeguarding the nation on icy frontiers and protecting people
of Jammu and Kashmir from terrorists.
"I appreciate the exceptional grit and courage of troops
deployed on the icy frontiers and those engaged in
counter-terrorist operations in Jammu and Kashmir," Jaswal
said during his farewell function at Udhampur-Based Northern
Command, 65 kms from here.

Jaswal, General Officer Commanding in Chief - Northern
Command, had assumed the prestigious post on October 1 last
year.

A third generation Army officer, Jaswal was commissioned
into the 3rd Battalion of the Jammu and Kashmir Rifles in
December 1970.
While addressing Army personnel, he highlighted the need
to keep constant vigil and exhorted the troops to uphold the
glorious ethos of the Indian Army.

In his distinguished career of 40 years, the officer
held various command, staff and instructional appointments.

He came to Northern Command with a rich and varied
experience in counter-insurgency and conventional operations,
both in J&K and the North East.
