From DWDD AFP Civil Relations Service Radio Website (Feb 7): DEPENDABLE TROOPERS | LGU of Impasugong sends-off troops for Community Support Program
IMPASUGONG, Bukidnon (DWDD) – The Local Government of Impasugonghosted a send-off ceremony this morning at Impasugong Municipal Gym to the soldiers of the 8th Infantry DEPENDABLE Battalion who will conduct the Community Support Program in the said municipality.
The CSP or the Community Support Program is a tool which the Armed Forces of the Philippines will utilize to help the local government in addressing the issues or problems of the communities to deliver vital government services.
These issues or problems arise from a simple question that when left unanswered, wrong people may present wrong solutions and further aggravate the situation that would then result in conflict.
The soldiers will not be bringing with them the solutions immediately; instead, they would gather these problems and link it with the proper agencies that can provide the right answers to these questions
The Armed Forces of the Philippines had been given the task by the constitution to protect the people and this nation. It is also implied that soldiers should advocate for peace and development. In order for peace and development to be realized, sense of security should be felt. In all our endeavors, security had always been our priority. But such a word is too broad even for the AFP. That is why we need all the help we can get from the local government and other line agencies to provide the people what they need. We are all part of the solution to our country’s problem but let’s start first in our communities. Big things come in small packages. 8IB / MCAG
