“As we strive hard to accomplish our missions, we should not forget to anchor our ways to common good- protecting the oppressed, upholding human rights, and helping the needy. In a profession that tests values to their limits, our achievements should not compromise the best of human character.”
Lt. Col. Bunayog with his family.
“In every designation I was entrusted to, I made it a point to make at least one significant contribution to both the Army organization and the area my unit serves. I believe that if everyone does his share of the task no matter how trifling it may be, the Army will be able to accomplish its mission and make the community for better than when we first set foot on it.”
SSg. Pascual with his family.
“As a soldier and a Banwaon tribe member, I always make sure that I safeguard and advocate for the preservation of our ethnic culture. A soldier should not only be a skilled leader in the battlefield, but more importantly a good servant of the community.”
