The 303rd Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Army marked its 35th founding anniversary on July 3 at Camp Gerona in Brgy. Minoyan, Murcia, Negros Occidental, by recognizing its outstanding soldiers and holding other activities.
Newly-promoted Brig. Gen. Inocencio Pasaporte, who led the celebration, lauded the collective performance of the 303IB soldiers that led to the accomplishment of its mandated tasks.
“Thus, it is just timely and right to give due credit for all of their sacrifices and their dedication to duty,” Pasaporte said as he conferred Military Merit Medals on recipient soldiers during the program that also observed strict health protocols.
The celebration was also highlighted by a mass, wreath-laying ceremony, and blessing of vehicles and equipment.
“Let us always work together for the greater aspiration of peace and development for the Filipino nation, especially in support of our unit’s mission accomplishment,” Pasaporte said.
“We will exemplify honor, patriotism, and duty,” he added.*
