LABANGAN, Zamboanga del Sur – The Army Artillery Regiment (AAR), Philippine Army (PA) recently lauded the 1st Field Artillery Battalion (1FAB) for the remarkable accomplishments rendered to the stakeholders.

In his message, Col. Agane C. Adriatico, AAR deputy regiment commander, said during the 1FAB’s 29th founding anniversary on Wednesday at Camp Major Cesar Sang-an here that the 1st FAB had accomplished so much during the past years.

Adriatico was impressed with the high standard of dedication that the 1FAB troopers have shown particularly in providing the needed artillery fire support to the different units of the Philippine Army’s 1st Infantry (Tabak) Division.

Adriatico also appreciated the disaster rescue and relief operations conducted by the 1FAB troopers during the typhoons in the different parts of Zamboanga Peninsula and Mindanao.

“We are happy to know that you have also conducted 125 various civil –military operations, such as: medical and dental civic action program (MEDCAP), blood donations, Brigada Eskwela, tree planting activities and clean up drive and static display of artillery weapons to promote the artillery’s capability,” Adriatico said.
Adriatico encouraged the troopers to live everyday the work that they give for the success of their mission. “It is the contribution of all our efforts that makes life of a soldier and public servant meaningful.”

Meanwhile, 1FAB commanding officer Lt. Col. Sonny M. Sales said the troops are now pursuing the Internal Peace and Security Plan (IPSP) or the “Bayanihan” campaign by providing social services to the people.

Sales also said the “1FAB is always ready to meet the challenges at all cost to support peace together with the different army units in the area and civilian sector to pave way for development in this part of the region.”

Sales said the “Beat ‘Em” team is always focused, ready and capable of performing its mission to support the 1st Infantry Division mission to promote peace and order in the area and advocate development.

“Bilang inyong pinuno lubos kong ipagmamalaki ang tagumpay na samasama natin nakamit at bukod sa lahat nais ko ring bigyang diin ang katapatan ng ipinamalas ng bawat isa na naaayon sa ating saligang-batas,” Sales said.

(As your leader, I am very proud of the victory that we collectively achieved and above all, I want to respect the rights enjoyed by everyone as stipulated in our Constitution.)
