Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner, Jr., a newly promoted Army Commanding General (CGPA), received arrival honors today, December 29, at the Army’s main headquarters in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City, in recognition of his well-deserved promotion.

Lt. Gen. Brawner was accompanied by his wife, Mrs. Melody Mariele V. Brawner, who received arrival honors from a battalion-sized contingent of troops.

Lt. Gen. Brawner, AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Andres C. Centino, and Commanding General of the Philippine Air Force Lt. Gen. Connor Anthony D. Canlas, Sr. received their ranks from President and Commander in Chief Rodrigo R. Duterte at Malacañang Palace’s Rizal Hall yesterday, December 28.

The CGPA held a hybrid “Talk to Troops” via face-to-face and video teleconference at the Philippine Army Officers’ Club after the arrival honors.

The event was attended in person by the Army’s general, technical, and personal staff, as well as officers and enlisted personnel from Philippine Army Major Units (PAMUs).

“We gather here today to give thanks to another milestone in my military career — my promotion to the next higher rank. But more than that, this activity is also dedicated to you, the 100,000-strong personnel of the Philippine Army. Truly, you have enabled me to achieve another victory in my military career,” Lt. Gen. Brawner said.

“My promotion is more than just a sign of my hard work in our profession. These three stars that I bear represent my vision to bring to the Filipino people across the three main islands of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao our collective goal of lasting peace and sustainable development in our country,” the CGPA remarked.
