From the Visayan Daily Star (Jun 21): 3rd ID ADC for reservists, retirees named
Colonel Aniano Orap-Orap, former deputy commander of the 303rd Infantry Brigade, has been promoted as the 3 rd Infantry Division assistant division commander for Reservist and Retiree Affairs.
Orap-Orap was installed Monday by Maj. Gen. Jon Aying, 3ID commanding general, in a ceremony held at Camp Macario Peralta in Jamindan, Capiz.
Lt. Col. Arnel Cabugon, 3ID Public Affairs Office chief, said that the ADC for Reservist and Retiree Affairs is a new position created by the Philippine Army in the Division level to invigorate the development program of the Army's Reserve component in its area of responsibility.
Aying emphasized the crucial roles of the RRA, not only to the AFP but to the country and the people.
“The utilization and employment of the AFP Reserve Forces in support to the AFP Development Support Security Plan must be given full support and attention,” Aying said during the installation of Orap-Orap.
Two Army Geographical Battalions were also organized by Aying in the Negros Island Region to support the non-traditional military activities of the Army in the newly-created region.
Orap-Orap promised to do his best in the performance of his duties and responsibilities in support to the attainment of the objectives of the AFP's Development Support Plan.
Col. Inocencio Pasaporte replaced Orap-Orap as the 303 rd Infantry Brigade deputy commander.
