LABANGAN, Zamboanga del Sur – Tabak commander BGen. Gerardo Barrientos Jr. on Saturday lauded the Tabak Defense Press Corps (TDPC) for its valuable contributions to the Philippine Army’s premiere division.

Barrientos, the guest of honor and speaker of the 2nd Tabak Defense Press Corps (TDPC) sports fest held at the Tabak Gym in Camp Major Cesar Sang-an, Barangay Pulacan here said the TDPC made significant contributions to the 1st Infantry Division by promoting the division’s peace and security efforts.

“You help showcase the peace and security efforts undertaken by the 1st Infantry division, thus we reward you by sponsoring this 1-day TDPC sports fest,” Barrientos announced.

“You are special as far as the 1st Infantry division is concerned. We treat you as our vital partner in nation-building,” Barrientos added.

“Today manifests your efforts to be united as one by showing your team-working skills,” Barrientos stressed adding the event also provides you with opportunities to develop your skills in sports and unwind from your stressful work.”

The Tabak commander was also happy that TDPC members shared their time with the rest of the troopers in the games played at the Tabak gym, tennis court, and service battalion headquarters.
Barrientos was impressed by the active participation of all TDPC members.

“We will continue doing this activity to strengthen existing good relationship between the soldiers and the media. Hopefully, we will come up with several activities designed to further improve our relationship and improve our output as far as our job is concerned,” Barrientos assured.

Declared as this year’s winners are Red Dragon, the over all champion, followed by Black Cobra, and Golden Tiger.
