The Philippine Army’s 53rd Infantry “Matapat” Battalion (53IB) and 1st CMO “Mahigalaon” Battalion (1CMOBn) conducted community engagement activities in the hinterland barangay of Salvador, Dumingag, Zamboanga del Suron July 10-13, 2021.

House-to-house visits were made by Matapat and Mahigalaon Troopers in Puroks 1, 2, and 3 of the abovementioned Barangay to learn about the community’s way of life and culture, as well as to inform them of any suspected Communist-NPA terroristic activities.

This activity is part of the 53IB’s drive to pursue transformation to become a world class Army that is a source of national pride by 2028 in line with the Army Transformation Roadmap (ATR).
