Captain (Hony) Yogendra Singh Yadav (Retd) is the youngest Param Vir Chakra awardee in India. He was given the highest military honor of the country for his exemplary courage during the Kargil War. Having volunteered to make way for the Ghatak platoon in the tough terrain of Tiger Hill, Yadav continued crawling up in the midst of intense fire to silence the enemy position.
Coming from a small town in India, he joined the Army at the tender age of sixteen. His humble beginnings only paved the way for higher achievements with every single step he took.
