Guipos, ZDS – Military underwent physically and mentally rigorous leadership training at the 53rd Infantry Battalion Headquarters last August 9.

Sergeant Parame led the 10-man squad who took the Small Unit Leadership Development Training (SULDT).

The SULDT trained the Matapat Troopers and the small-unit leaders to provide effective Command and Control. They were also trained to be physically fit and mentally tough. It is important to be physically and mentally fit for the efficient and effective conduct of command and control.

Last July 11, the same squad successfully captured a .50-caliber Sniper Rifle (Barrett), Rocket-Propelled Grenade, improvised shotgun, one M16 Assault Rifle, and an estimated 15-kilogram Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

The said IED was used as a landmine in a firefight against the communist New People’s Army (NPA) terrorists’ Main Regional Guerilla Unit (MRGU) and HQ “KALAW” of Western Mindanao Regional Party Committee (WMRPC) in the boundary of Sitio Tumanong, Brgy Macasing and Sitio Lacnapan, Brgy Pange, both in Siayan town, Zamboanga del Norte.

In his inspirational message, 53rd IB Commanding Officer Lt. Col. Jo-ar Herrera reiterated that the best weapon to defeat the enemy is a well-trained and well-motivated soldier.

Small Unit Operations utilizing squads, the smallest unit of the military organization, intends to accomplish missions where larger units may be ineffective and uneconomical.
