NUVALI, Sta Rosa, Laguna — Residents of this posh complex were awakened by roars of military trucks and tanks after Army soldiers “invaded and occupied” Solenad 1 on Saturday.

Led by the Army’s 2nd Infantry (Jungle Fighter) Division, hundreds of soldiers were warmly welcomed by joggers, bikers and Nuvali employees as they set up camp for a day-long Information Caravan dubbed as “OktoberPeace”.

Brigadier General Arnulfo Marcelo B Burgos Jr, Command of 2ID, said that “this is the first time that this annual undertaking was held outside Tanay town’s Camp Capinpin with the objective of bringing the soldiers closer to the people whom we have sworn to serve.”

He added that the caravan is “designed for the public to interact with the soldiers while getting the chance to personally see and experience the modern weapons, military capabilities and mobility assets such as tanks, trucks as well as emergency and rescue vehicles which soldiers use in accomplishing our mandate to serve the people and secure the Filipinos’ homeland.”

The attractions also included face painting for the kids, airsoft target range for the “kids at heart”, selected merchants selling CALABARZON’s native products and recruitment booths for reservist and soldier-wannabes.

The Army Silent Drillers showcased their incredible display of precision and coordination which soldiers are known for as they performed their formations just with the beat of the drums. This was after the Army Marching Band entertained the mall-goers with their specially choreographed dance moves while playing their musical instruments.

In his message during the ribbon cutting ceremony, BGen Burgos expressed his gratitude to Nuvali’s unconditional support which made this “never-before-seen endeavour” a success even before it became a reality.

According to a soldier, the audience turnout was beyond what they expected.

“This activity can be a barometer of the level of support which the people of CALABARZON have for their soldiers and another proof that the insurgent’s are, indeed, losing popular support in this part of the country which they consider to be critical to the success of their so-called revolution.”

Close to a thousand people have already visited the booths and vehicles before it was officially opened to the public.

The 2ID Band, considered as the best in the entire Armed Forces, serenaded the public with their soulful and soothing songs catering to both the preferred genre of the millennials and older generations.

The management of Nuvali and the Army leadership are already planning for a three-day sequel of the just concluded activity to be held in the soonest possible time.
