Demise of Dr Goh Keng Swee

I first heard of it from WV. The President's Charity event is to be postponed, so was the charity speed climb. In my mind, I was wondering just who Dr Goh was. Pardon my ignorance. As I later discovered...

Dr Goh Keng Swee, our former Deputy Prime Minister and the first Minister for Defence, passed away on14 May 2010. During his term, Dr Goh oversaw the development of defence science in Singapore and had a role in building up the Singapore Armed Forces, the Republic of Singapore Air Force and DSO National Laboratories. He also made significant contributions to Singapore's finance, education and tourism sectors throughout his long years of public service.

May he rest in peace.
