Capt. Khomsan Sonsupaap, commander of Naval Base Sattahip Battalion, presided over the Oct 30 ceremony for the 198 sailors and marines. They will now go into the military’s reserve force for a year.
Handing out completion certificates to the conscripts, Khomsan said he appreciated the sacrifice the sailors made to leave their families and home towns.
He said he hoped the sailors and marines gained valuable knowledge and experience they can utilize in private life.
