3 Army battalions get new commanders


THREE Philippine Army battalions in Negros under the 303rd Brigade are set to have new commanders.
Today, Thursday, the 62nd Infantry Battalion will hold the installation of Lieutenant Colonel Efren Murados as its incoming commanding officer.
The battalion based in Barangay Bato, Sagay City was formerly headed by an officer-in-charge after Lieutenant Colonel John Ely Alberto was promoted to a full-fledged colonel early this year.
The installation will be administered by 3rd Infantry Division Commanding General Major General Jose Mabanta.
On Friday, the 11th Infantry Battalion based in Guihulngan, Negros Oriental will hold the turnover ceremonies between outgoing commanding officer Lieutenant Colonel Ramil Bitong and his replacement Lieutenant Colonel Wilfredo Isaac.
Bitong has completed his almost two-year stint as battalion commander.
On the other hand, the First Scout Ranger Battalion based in La Carlota City will also have a new commander on March 1, according to Colonel Oscar Lactao, 303rd Brigade commander.
Lieutenant Colonel Ariel Felicidario will be promoted to a new position in the elite force of the Philippine Army.
His successor has not been named yet.
