    Good to see a magazine totally focused on our Defence Forces. The magazine could help the Armed Forces to bring in new blood as we observe less and less youngsters from cities not going for armed forces services. It was sad to see a stall of Indain Army at one of the Durga Puja pendals in Delhi ,last year.

    Today the Armed Forces are not receiving the best of talent and so i feel the strategists ,who are required to think out any attack or otherwise,are missing in the Armed Forces.

    .t is just a thought,
    Further the magazine could help the armed forces personnel ,who are at remote locations and are unable to take care of their homes back and face litigation and are not able to attend court hearing etc in ways that would help them to see the courts through via say video conferencing e etc. In short helping various defence personnel in finding resolutions for their issues which their families face as they are away for long period of time.
