AFP ready for PHL's 115th Independence Day celebrations

From the Philippine News Agency (Jun 11): AFP ready for PHL's 115th Independence Day celebrations
Aside from ensuring the country's 115th Independence Day celebrations will be secure and orderly, the Armed Forces will also set up a job fair and information caravan along with a static display in Plaza San Lorenzo Ruiz in Binondo, Manila Wednesday.

Aside from this, AFP chief-of-staff Gen. Emmanuel T. Bautista and other ceremonial elements from the military will join President Benigno Aquino III in the flag-raising and wreath laying ceremony in Liwasang Bonifacio.

Simultaneous flag-raising and wreath laying ceremonies will be held in other historical sites including the Rizal Monument in Luneta and Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite.

"The participation of the AFP in the celebration of the Philippine Independence Day is a simple way of remembering the Filipinos’ hard-fought achievement of independence for our beloved country," Bautista stressed.

He added this serves as a reminder of the military’s undying perseverance to protect the people, uphold sovereignty, and achieve a just and lasting peace as embodied in Internal Peace and Security Program "Bayanihan".
