Never Again! Never Forget!

Why does it matter?  Can't we move on? There is a thin line between moving forward and forgetting. The occurrence of collective amnesia did not happen only by mistake or overnight. Correctly remembering what happened during Martial Law is important, especially amidst ongoing conversations that attempt to revise history. While others have made attempts through social media platforms to cement the Martial Law's place in our cultural memory, we have a clear social responsibility to be accountable for our actions and be conscious of its impact on others and in our communities. Truths are learned to be remembered and not to be forgotten. There is nothing wrong with forgiving and moving forward, but what makes things hard to digest is when accountability is neglected. In that case, chances are, Filipinos will find it hard to value, defend, and promote our freedom. To be reminded to #NeverForget does not necessarily mean holding a grudge until our very last breath. It will

CAMP CAPINPIN, Tanay, Rizal, Sept 7 (PIA) — The first batch of Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) recruits to undergo the Army’s 45-day jungle warfare training were declared graduates during a ceremony here Friday.
Out of the 85 PCG recruits, 57 were male while the rest were females, all of whom will be deployed to guard Philippine shores.
Lt Col Jose DR Del Rosario III, Commandant of the 2nd Division Training School, said the Jungle Warfare and Mountain Operations Course is the first training that 2ID soldiers take after their enlistment into the Philippine Army.
“This training developed each individual’s survival instinct, warrior spirit, leadership trait, teamwork and, above all, discipline which are among the hallmarks of being servant soldiers and defenders of the Filipino people”, ended Lt Col Del Rosario.
It can be recalled that the PCG, through Rear Admiral Joseph Coyme who is the Commander of the PCG's Human Resource Management Command, reached out to the 2nd Infantry Division to have their neophytes cross-train with the Army in order to increase their recruits’ readiness to accomplish their given mandate.
Rear Admiral Coyme explained that “in times of war, PCG will be under the Department of National Defense, thus, there is an underlying need for us to capacitate our forces so that we will be able to  live up to the expectations of our people and spirit behind that provision.”
"We believe that we were able to successfully achieve that objective, thus, the Philippine Coast Guard and 2ID have decided to formalize this partnership and institutionalize this worthwhile undertaking with the goal of better serving our people and securing every inch of Philippine territory”, ended Rear Admiral Coyme.

Major General Arnulfo Marcelo Burgos Jr, Commander of 2ID, and Rear Admiral Coyme signed a Memorandum of Partnership after  the graduation ceremony.
Under the partnership, 2ID has committed to provide JWMOC Training to recruits of the PCG which, in turn, will train the Jungle Fighters on the facets of Human Resource and Personnel Management as well as in search and rescue operations.
In his speech, Maj Gen Burgos reiterated the Army’s “commitment in ensuring the safety of the Coast Guard’s recruits without sacrificing the quality and brand of training that they will get under the guidance, scrutinizing eyes and able hands of the mentors from the Philippine Army’s best training unit thereby making them ready to live up to the expectations of our constituents.”
He described the signing of partnership document as a “manifestation of the enduring trust and iron-clad relationship between and among the government’s security sector which is in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s call for a whole of nation approach in responding to the various issues which our country is facing.”
He ended his statement by assuring the people of CALABARZON Region and MIMARO provinces that “the Jungle Fighter Division, in coordination with our strategic partners and stakeholders from the private and public sectors, will remain steadfast in accomplishing our mandate as advocates of peace, servants of the people and defenders of Southern Tagalog.” (PIA-4A/PA 2ID DPAO)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Ginusto Niyo 'Yan!

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na.
