Col. Emmanuel Cabasan, Deputy Assistant Chief of Staff for Education and Training, DG8, PA, with the Headquarters Philippine Army training evaluation committee and Lt. Col.

The project is envisioned to produce well-trained and well-capacitated soldiers that will contribute to the fulfillment of the Army’s core purpose of serving the people and securing the land. — PA
