New Delhi, Jan 12 (IBNS) Air Chief Marshal NAK Browne, Chief of the Air Staff and Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee visited the NCC Republic Day Parade Camp 2013 at Delhi Cantt on Saturday.

Complimenting the cadets on their performance, he said, "Thank you all for giving me the opportunity for being here, I feel very honoured here. I feel very young again to see you all, the josh that is written across your face and the spirit in which you have taken on this task."

He further said, "I am extremely grateful to your parents who have sent you to this camp and made you a part of this nation building.

"The cadets who are here have been specially selected to attend the camp, I only wish that if each one of you would join the armed forces, which I am sure many of you will do, I think the services would be better enriched by your experience and by your background."
