       Moshe Dayan self belonging to his countryis a recipe of successful in his military and political career. His leadershipattribute can be adapted to our RMAF officer to be implement. As a RMAF Officer,we should take Moshe Dayan as an example which he always placeserviceahead of his own self interests in many ways. Service before self does not meanyou stop taking care of your families. Our families are a critical element ofthe Air Force family. Our service should enhance their health; morale andwelfare not take away from it. While Air Force duties take up a large chunk ofour time, we must take every opportunity to spend time with our families andinvolve ourselves in their lives too. This principle of service before selfalso does not mean we as RMAF Officer should not pursue higher education,participate in off-duty activities or pursue personal and professionaldevelopment.

The Air Force desires well-rounded Officer who are physically,mentally and spiritually grounded. It is beneficial when these extra-curricularpursuits align with service and mission requirements.   CONCLUSION 27.       Asa conclusion, Moshe Dayan was one of the greatest military leaders in a world ofincessant small wars since World War II.

Dayandoes this by concentrating strengthen Israel Defence Force. 30.       In Israeli history, Dayan stands tall asone of the most important military and political figures to grace the nation.Despite his controversial nature, Dayan performed tasks not only as a militaryleader, but as a statesman as well.

Not only he did help a young Israelestablish its independence and safety at one point in his career, but he latertook on the task of guiding the still fledging nation during a very tumultuoustime period. Though not every Israeli citizen, or world citizen for thatmatter, agrees that Dayan made the right decisions, one thing is certain: hemade the decisions that he did without hesitance and with his nation’s bestinterests at heart. (3441 words)             Jan 18     MOHD SUKRI BIN MD ZAINUNKapt TUDMSub Syndicate Group 2 LeaderSOC 89/18                        BIBLIOGRAPHY/REFERENCES
