Phil. Army’s 7ID get new motorcycles

From the Philippine News Agency (Apr 17): Phil. Army’s 7ID get new motorcycles

The Philippine Army's 7th Infantry Division's peace and order campaign received a big boost after the higher headquarters sent 10 new motorcycles for its operations, a ranking military officer said on Wednesday.

Major Gen. Gregorio Pio Catapang Jr., 7ID commander, said the new Honda TMX155 motorcycles, which cost P76,300 each, will be issued to the line units in the field for administrative purposes.

The new motorcycles were blessed recently at the (Kaugnay) Division (7ID) headquarters here.

Last April 8, the Department of Agriculture (DA) Region 3 donated a brand new Holland modern tractor with complete accessories to 7th ID to sustain its agricultural projects.

Recently, three wheelchairs were also donated at Fort Magsaysay Army Station Hospital (FMASH) by Col. Rogelio V Ballesteros, retired military officer of the Philippine Army.

The donations are of big help to the military and its dependents who are confined at the Army hospital.

Catapang thanked for the donations that they received as he expressed hope that more stakeholders will pledge to support the development plans and livelihood projects within the Fort Magsaysay Military Reservations (FMMR).
