Army official enjoins public to be partners for peace

KIANGAN, Ifugao, July 21(PIA) - - The commanding officer of the  54th Infantry Battalion (Magilas troops)  enjoined students, parents and teachers to be partners for peace and development and nation building.


Lieutenant Colonel Nicolas Quemado, Jr. urged all students to focus on their studies and avoid the influence of anti-government groups and other related organizations as it may become a front for recruitment.

He shared that  during an encounter at Sitio Abaka, Brgy Danggo, Tinoc, Army soldiers recovered war materials and personal belongings including school IDs of two female students of a government university and a journal of one of the students detailing her experiences as member of the armed revolution.

“I would also like to encourage the parents to closely monitor and guide their children in becoming productive citizens of the nation. The same way goes to the school teachers for they stand as secondary parents of these students,” Quemado said.

The army official stressed that children will always be the hope of the nation. Marcelo B. Lihgawon (JDP/MBL-PIA CAR, Ifugao)
