Meet the awesome... and handsome soldier who helped mum carry little girl so they could watch NDP

The soldier who made waves online for helping a woman carry her young daughter at the National Day Parade (NDP) preview show has been identified by the Singapore Army.

An earlier Stomp article reported that Facebook user Kenny Leo had commended the soldier for helping his wife and daughter on July 23.

The pair were supposed to watch the NDP, but were slightly late and at the wrong side of the stadium.

Hence, the soldier helped to carry the little girl as her mother was holding stuff and it was quite a long walk to the right entrance.

A Facebook post by The Singapore Army yesterday (July 27) identified LTA Tee Chze Hao, Charlie Company 2IC from 5th Battalion, Singapore Infantry Regiment as the kind-hearted soldier.

His battalion is involved in packing and distributing the funpacks as well as spectator management for this year’s NDP. 

The Facebook post said:

"Initially surprised to find out that he had been “Stomp-ed” for something he wouldn’t think twice of doing again, he shares, 'I'm definitely glad to know that my actions have brightened someone's day'."

Leo responded to the post and commented:

"Woah.. I didn't know my post can actually reach here. In any case, thanks so much LTA Tee for your help that day. It really did brighten our day. And from the photo itself, I guess you can tell my daughter enjoyed her 'free ride' as well."

To this, LTA Tee replied:

"Mr Leo, I was surprised by the picture captured too. Want to thank you for showing faith and trusting us to do our job. Hope your kid and wife had a good show that night :)"
