General Carlito Galvez received his fourth star on Wednesday after almost a month after he assumed as the chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
Galvez led the 38 other star-rank officers in the oathtaking ceremony before President Rodrigo Duterte in Malacañang.
Before the ceremony, Duterte and Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana donned the four-star rank to Galvez.
The newly-promoted AFP chief took over the top military post last April 18. He replaced now-retired Gen. Rey Leonardo Guerrero.
