CAMP SIONGCO, Maguindanao — The Army’s 6th Infantry Division (ID) on Wednesday deployed 277 newly-trained soldiers in the division’s area of jurisdiction.
The send-off ceremonies of 277 newly graduated privates, 29 of whom were females, was witnessed by Brig. Gen. Juvymax Uy, 6th ID deputy commander, at the division grandstand.
They were deployed to Army battalions under the 601st, 602nd, and 603rd Infantry Brigades in the provinces of Maguindanao, North Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat and part of Lanao del Sur.
Being the keynote speaker, Uy urged the new soldiers to value their service, as much as they value their lives and their families in helping maintain peace and order.
“Be good soldiers and live the ideals of the Philippine Army. Serve the people, protect our country and be loyal to the Philippine flag,” Uy advised the soldiers.
He also told them to become more professional and capable soldiers in their field of duty.
