FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila – President Rodrigo R. Duterte graced the celebration of the Philippine Army’s 122nd Founding Anniversary here today, Mar. 21, 2019. President Duterte was Guest of Honor and Speaker of the Anniversary Program at the Ricarte Hall, Philippine Army Officers Clubhouse. Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana
and Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Gen. Benjamin Madrigal accompanied the President during the program.

Duterte first had a tour of the Army’s Mobile Treatment Facilities (MTF) followed by the Capability Demonstration and Defense Exhibit which granted the Commander-in-Chief a look into the Army’s current capabilities and modernization plan. The MTF includes the Multi-Purpose Mobile Treatment Facility (MPMTF) and the Forward Treatment Facility (FTF).

The MPMTF provides a rapid deployable and operational military facility for the mobile battalions when conducting its military
operations. It can be transformed into an office, supply room, barracks, and conference room if the need arises. The FTF is conceptualized in order to provide surgery for ground troops during military operations. It can also provide advance trauma care
during disaster relief, and humanitarian missions. Just like the MPMTF, the FTF is also designed for rapid deployment to areas where there are minimal resources and time instraint.

Also, as part of the anniversary program, deserving personnel who displayed conspicuous courage and gallantry in battle were given due recognition as well the best performing civilian personnel, CAFGU Active Auxilliary, and Reserve Officers Training Corps cadets.
