From the Philippine Information Agency (Feb 28): Phil Army in E. Samar urges youths to join the organization
Around 200 youths in Eastern Samar State University Maydolong Campus, Maydolong Eastern Samar participated the Information Awareness Drive conducted by army authorities in said area.
The objective of the activity is aimed at encouraging more applicants to join the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
Civil Military Operations Officer 2lt. Dennis S. Carig of the 14th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army told Philippine Information Agency that one of the topics discussed during the info drive was about career guidance particularly on how to apply to become an officer and soldier in the Philippine army.
“Being a soldier is a noble profession, that each individual dedicates their lives for his/her love of the country,” Carig said.
14th IB Commanding Officer Lt.Col. Manuel Leo Gador said the said activity is also one way of reaffirming the commitment of the 14th IB in reaching out to the academe and youth sector that would bring inspiration on their role in nation-building.
“We hope that our partners from the academe followed suit and also be our active partners in molding the youth as agents of peace and development of our country,” Gador said.
