AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Andres Centino visited the troops in Pag-asa Island in the municipality of Kalayaan on Friday, March 4, 2022.

The Chief of Staff’s visit aims to inspect military facilities, check troops’ morale, and ensure unit operational readiness to accomplish the AFP mission.

Gen. Centino assured the troops of support from the AFP general headquarters. He conveyed that the AFP and the Filipino people are grateful for the soldiers’ services and sacrifices as defenders of the country’s western frontier.

In a simple yet meaningful donning of rank ceremony witnessed by the troops in Pag-asa island, the Chief of Staff donned the third-star rank to the newly-promoted Commander of Western Command Vice Admiral Alberto B. Carlos PN.

Vice Admiral Carlos assumed as commander of Western Command after the retirement of Vice Admiral Ramil Roberto Enriquez last January 21.

“Today, we are veering away from the usual elaborate and formal donning ceremony as the event all the more highlights or gives more meaning to awarding the rank to Vice Admiral Carlos. This is very significant because we are all here in the most remote deployment of our troops, the valiant defenders of the Philippines’ first frontier,” says General Centino. — AFP
