FORT RAMON MAGSAYSAY, Nueva Ecija (DWDD) – A Welcome Ceremony will be held for the 69th Infantry “We Dare” Battalion while a Send-off Ceremony is slated for the 56th infantry “Tatag” Battalion on February 4, 2018 to be held at the Headquarters Grandstand of the 7th Infantry “Kaugnay” Division at Fort Ramon Magsaysay in Nueva Ecija.
The 69th infantry (Cougar) Battalion will be coming from Jolo, Sulu, where they were assigned for a year and a half, not counting the previous seven years deployment in other areas of Mindanao.
They played an important role in a joint security operation, monitoring terror plans and actions that limited and hampered the ASG’s maneuver space within their AOR and cut the group’s popular support from the local populace.
The 56th infantry (Tatag) Battalion) has been involved in several landmark activities that sustained peace and security in the province of Aurora.
They were able to recover 10 insurgency camps from Aurora to Nueva Ecija and has been an active partner of the DENR on stopping illegal logging. The Battalion will be sent to an area in Mindanao. 7DPAO / MCAG
