Bancasi, Butuan City – The 402nd Infantry (Stingers) Brigade commemorated the 123rd Founding Anniversary of the Philippine Army (PA) on March 23, 2020, at Headquarters 402nd Infantry (Stingers) Brigade, Brgy Bancasi, Butuan City. 

The Brigade under the leadership of Brigadier General Maurito L Licudine led the commemoration of the Philippine Army’s 123rd Founding Anniversary through the conduct of a simultaneous flag-raising ceremony together with its OPCON units. 

Amidst the challenges of the unseen threat of COVID-19 in the country, once again, the Philippine Army as a reliable and dependable partner of the people has been put to the test on its dynamic role to assist and support the civilian agencies in preventing the spread of the pandemic virus that plagued not only the Philippines but the whole world.  

The simultaneous flag-raising was done following the protocol of social distancing which was led by Brigadier General Licudine highlighting the reading of the message of the Commanding General of the Philippine Army, Lieutenant General Gilbert I Gapay AFP.  

In his message, General Gapay underscores the milestones of the Philippine Army for the past 123 years of gallantry and dedication in serving our people and securing our land and as a staunch guardian of peace, a vital partner in nation-building and the single largest force provider of the Armed Forces of the Philippines standing proud at one hundred thousand strong. 

In Filipino language, He said, “Habang ipinagdiriwang natin ang ating anibersaryo, ang ating kasundaluhan ay buong giting na babantayan ang kaligtasan ng sambayanang Pilipino mula sa salot na COVID-19. Kakaiba ito sa ating mga tradisyunal na kalaban sapagkat hindi ito tao ngunit labis na mapamuksa. Mananatili tayong matatag sa pagtupad ng ating sinumpaang tungkulin – ang pagsilbihan at protektahan ang mga mamamayan at ating bayan kahit buhay man ang kapalit”.

Meanwhile, Brigadier General Licudine in his statement said that the Stinger Troopers under his leadership will perform its mandate and continue being catalysts of peace. “402nd Brigade will continuously serve and protect the people as we pursue our quest for professionalism among our ranks. We call on our peace-loving citizens to support your troops in its peaceful war effort through the Peace and Development Zone (PDZ) program here in Caraga spearheaded by the Task Force ELCAC in order to attain just and peaceful environment for inclusive development”.
