Lt. Gen. Andres C. Centino, the Commanding General of the Philippine Army (CGPA), on Tuesday (October 26, 2021) paid a visit to troops deployed to isolated patrol sites under the 6th Infantry Division in Central Mindanao.

In Alamada and Taguranao, North Cotabato, Lt. Gen. Centino paid a visit to the Teren-Teren and Taguranao Patrol Bases (PB). He also paid a visit to Camp Robert Eduard Lucero, the headquarters of the 602nd Infantry Brigade in Carmen, the same province. The said PBs are part of the hard-to-reach areas in 6ID’s areas of responsibility in Central Mindanao. They are forward bases from which soldiers perform combat and reconnaissance missions in order to keep the peace and security in their area of operations.

The CGPA has been visiting isolated Army units to personally assess soldiers’ conditions, raise military morale, and remind field commanders of the command’s priorities.

“I urge you to remain steadfast in our commitment to end communist and terrorist threats in the country so people can live in peace,” Lt. Gen. Centino said in his “Talk to Troops.”

“Know that the Army leadership appreciates and recognizes your efforts in attaining lasting peace in our country,” he concluded.
