96 new soldiers add up to Army’s strength in Panay and Negros

Camp Gen Macario Peralta Jr., Jamindan, Capiz - The 3rd Infantry (Spearhead) Division (3ID) will strengthen its human resource capability with the graduation of 96 new soldiers today.

To mark the end of a 6-month rigid Candidate Soldier Course (CSC) and Jungle Warfare Mountain Operation Course (JWMOC) training, a closing ceremony, which will be witnessed by representatives from different stakeholders, their friends and family, will be held at Camp Peralta in Jamindan, Capiz.

Major General Jose Mabanta Jr, 3ID Commander, said that this ceremony is conducted to instil nationalism and service-oriented attitude among soldiers upon their entry to the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

“The ceremony is also aimed to instil among them their responsibilities to the Nation and the Filipino people being the government’s instrument in the maintenance of peace in this part of the country,” Mabanta said.

Mabanta added that these new soldiers will be immediately assigned in the different battalions here in Panay and Negros Islands to perform peace and development works and to strengthen Army units in these areas. 

At present, the 3ID is conducting training to 142 candidate soldiers who took their oath last May 15, 2012. They are currently undergoing the same rigid training after qualifying the selection process and after passing the competitive Physical, Neurological, and Psychological examinations.
