PIA Press Release

Increase in combat pay to uplift morale of military personnel - AFP

by Apipa P. Bagumbaran

Islamic City of Marawi (30 November) -- The leadership of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) is working hard for the increase of combat pay as a way of uplifting the morale and welfare of military personnel.

AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Ricardo A. David Jr. revealed this during his recent visit to Kampo Ranao here in the city to see the condition of army's 103rd (Haribon) Brigade troopers.

He disclosed that one of the important suggestions during their consultative meeting at the general headquarters as well as during the budget presentation was the increase of combat pay of personnel assigned in field from P240 to P1,000 per month effective January 1, 2011.

Through the effort of Senator Chiz Escudero, Senate Committee on National Defense chairman, we are hoping it will be approve because about 60% of the troops will benefit from it, he said.

The AFP chief further said that they are contemplating all possible things that will enhance the welfare of military personnel such as their need for rest and recreation.

The Haribon troopers were also informed that the AFP has inked a Memorandum of Agreement with Negros Navigation Company management giving 25% discount fare for all members of the AFP and their dependents so that they can have the chance to visit their families more often.

During his visit, the AFP chief also unveiled the marker of the newly constructed brigade mosque where Muslim comrades-in-arms could practice their faith. (PIA Marawi) [top]
