Lady Cadets From Haryana Win Top Honours At Officers Training Academy


For the first time in the history of Officers Training Academy, two lady cadets secured the top honours, including the coveted ‘Sword of Honour’, at the passing out parade held in Chennai.

Academy cadet adjutant (ACA) Preeti Choudhary received the Sword of Honour whereas senior under officer (SUO) Vreeti was awarded the silver medal.

Sword of Honour is awarded to the cadet who stands first in the order of merit. An officer cadet has to perform well in physical tests, academic training, weapon training, leadership qualities, field engineering and drill.
