Hitesh Kumar was just six-years-old when his father, a Lance Naik in the 2nd Battalion of Rajputana Rifles, was killed at Tololing, in Kargil, on the night of June 12, 1999. When he heard the news, he swore that when he grew up, he would join the Army.
Almost exactly 19 years later, Hitesh has been commissioned as a lieutenant in the Indian Army after passing out from the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun.
