FY2016 Entrance Ceremony at Ministry of Defense

On April 1st, the first day of the new fiscal year, all newly-hired MOD civilian officials attended the Entrance Ceremony, which was held at the MOD headquarters, Tokyo. Defense Minister Nakatani told 434 new recruits that “Always have a sense of ordinary people. Think of what each of you and this organization should do for Japan and the world. Carry that awareness always as you building career.” The new recruits then received letters of appointment from Director General Toyoda of Minister’s Secretariat. Afterwards all new recruits took an oath of service: “In case of emergency, I would strive to complete duties, which might put myself in danger, as entrusted by the nation.” The new entrants strongly acknowledged a sense of responsibility and commitment as a member of MOD.
