Army chief urges troops to observe highest degree of discipline
ICC Iligan City (20 November) -- The Commanding General of the Philippine Army (PCGA) has urged his troops on the ground to observe and maintain the highest degree of military discipline throughout their tour of duty.
"I always emphasize on discipline as the key to military professionalism whenever I visit camps like this in Kampo Ranao, Marawi City," Lt General Victor S. Ibrado, CGPA said.
He told the military officers and field commanders of the 3rd Infantry (Haribon) Brigade, First Infantry Division (103rd Bde), PA, that it is always mandated by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to protect the state and the Filipino people at all times.
"Every soldier is mandated to observe the highest form of discipline and the AFP has provided them with guns and support armaments in order to protect the state and the people against insurgencies and rebellions," he also said.
The PCGA has visited Kampo Ranao on invitation of Col Rey C. Ardo, Commander of 103rd Bde to receive the newly constructed administrative building donated by the Provincial Government of Lanao del Sur (LDS).
The Php2.1million worth of building was turned-over Nov. 20, 2008 to the CGPA by the provincial officials led by LDS Administrator Mocamad Rakiin during a brief ceremony inside Kampo Ranao.
The CGPA also led the cornerstone-laying and groundbreaking ceremony of the proposed one (1) unit Enlisted Personnel (EP) barracks inside the camp. (RTD/PIA-Marawi) [top]
