by Eden Z. Nebrijapia

Manila (5 February) -- Sa isasagawang 2008 Balikatan Exercise na gaganapin dito sa Pilipinas sa darating na February 18 hanggang March 3, ngayong taon, magiging focus nito ang pagsasanay sa ating armed forces sa pagbibigay ng relief at tulong lalong-lalo na sa mga pangyayari dala ng natural disasters at iba pang mga kagipitan na magbibigay panganib sa public health and safety ng ating mga mamamayan.

Ang military service members ng bansa ay magsasagawa ng combined staff exercises at field training sa Luzon at Palawan upang mapaunlad ang contingency planning at palakasin ang maritime security. Isasagawa rin sa ibat-ibang lugar sa dito sa Pilipinas ang Joint /Combined and Exchange Training Exercises sa pabgbisita ng US Navy ship.

Ayon pa kay U.S. Ambassador Kristie A. Kenney, ang humanitarian assistance at training activities ay magiging daan upang ang ating mga sundalo ay magkalapit at lalong magkakilala sa isat-isa, magsanay ng sama-sama at maghandog ng assistance sa mga komunidad na nangangailangan ng tulong. "True to the meaning of the word balikatan, this exercise entails Philippine and U.S. forces shouldering the load together to help the greatest possible number of people in need, dadag pa ni Kenney.
