Approximately 501 soldiers are currently undergoing organizational training at the headquarters for the Philippine Army 3rd Infantry Battalion in Jamindan, Capiz in order to enhance their capabilities to combat the insurgency in Panay.
The training, which began on Monday, is scheduled to run for 45 days.
According to Army Lt. Colonel Sisenando Magbalot, the training will develop and enhance “operational capabilities” in conducting the community support program, which seeks to resolve insurgency matters.
“We have to undergo training,” the military official said. “This is also in preparation [for] our continued fight against insurgents.”
“After the training, they will be deployed to areas where more insurgency problems exist,” he added.
Meanwhile, Philippine Army 3rd Infantry Division commander, Major General Eric Vinoya, discussed how crucial the training is in order to accomplish their goals.
“Consider the refilling and organizational training of your unit as a house or business renovation wherein you need to destroy a portion of it to restore and build a new and stronger one,” he explained. “It will be hard for you because you will again endure pain and pressure, but it will polish your flaws and bring out the best in you.”/WDJ
