WestMinCom Chief conferred with Marine Brigade Command Badge

Camp Navarro, Calarian, Zamboanga City – December 10, 2021

Maj. Gen. Ariel Caculitan, Commandant of the Philippine Marine Corps, awarded the Marine Brigade Command Badge (Honorary) to the Western Mindanao Command Chief, Lt. Gen. Alfredo Rosario, Jr., during his visit to the command at Camp Navarro, Calarian, this city on December 9, 2021.

The award was accorded to the WestMinCom Commander for having operational control over the Marine units deployed in the Province of Tawi-Tawi, 2nd District of Sulu, Central Mindanao, and Zamboanga City that significantly contributed to the accomplishment of the Philippine Marine Corps’ mission.

Maj. Gen. Caculitan said the corps values the exceptional leadership of Lt. Gen. Rosario, Jr. and for that, aside from being a seasoned three-star army general, he is now recognized as a certified senior officer of the Philippine Marine Corps.

Lt. Gen. Rosario, Jr. expressed his gratitude to Maj. Gen. Caculitan for taking the time to visit the command and recognizing his contributions as a unified command chief to the corps. “Let us continue to live up to our best services and be an inspiration to our comrades-in-arms and our countrymen,” the WestMinCom Commander said.

Maj. Gen. Caculitan paid a courtesy call to the WestMinCom Commander at 3:30 p.m. Thursday. He was welcomed with full military honors during his arrival and was subsequently received by Lt. Gen. Rosario, Jr. at the Laong Laan Hall.

The two-star marine general is the 33rd Commandant of the Philippine Marine Corps. He is a proud member of the Philippine Military Academy “Makatao” Class of 1989. He is one of the few Naval Aviators who received the “Best in Flying” award.
