The Commanding General Philippine Army (CGPA), Lt. Gen. Andres C. Centino, assured ground troops of continued support from the Army leadership in the second day of his visit to far-flung patrol bases under the 6th Infantry “Kampilan” Division in Central Mindanao yesterday, October 27, 2021.
“The Philippine Army will provide the needs of troops and units from supplies, firepower, mobility to communication equipment,” Lt. Gen. Centino said in his “Talk to Troops.”
He also directed commanders to “lead from the front” and make their presence felt even in the remotest parts of their respective areas of responsibility.
Lt. Gen. Centino visited the San Jose patrol base in South Upi, Maguindanao and the Blit patrol base in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato. The CGPA has been visiting remote Army units to check on the situation of soldiers, boost troop morale, and reiterate his command guidance to ground commanders.
“The Philippine Army will go where the enemies are. We support the establishment of new forward operating bases and sustain existing FOBs,” Lt. Gen. Centino said.
“The enemy is on the brink of irreversible defeat. We shall not forgo this opportunity. The attainment of genuine and lasting peace is our mission, and there is no one in a better position to accomplish this but us,” the CGPA concluded.
