The 302 nd Infantry Brigade in Negros Oriental has been adjudged by the Armed Forces of the Philippines Central Command as the best Army infantry brigade in Visayas for 2012, military records show.
Lt. Christopher Tampos, AFP Central Command spokesman, said the successful intelligence, combat and civil military operations, coupled with personnel administration, resource management and disaster rescue and relief operations were among the main factors, that enabled the 302 nd Infantry Brigade, to win the award.
The AFP Central Command supervises the internal and peace development campaign of the Army infantry divisions, which is composed of six infantry brigades, excluding the Air Force and Navy units.
The award was recently conferred on Col. Francisco Patrimonio, commander of the 302 nd Infantry Brigade, by AFP chief of staff Gen. Jessie Dellosa, assisted by Vice Admiral Jose Luis Alano and Brig. Gen. Jonas Sumagaysay, at Camp Lapu-Lapu in Cebu City.
Patrimonio attributed the award to the accomplishments of his men and staff, as well to the 11 th and 79 th Infantry Battalions.
“Our accomplishments, coupled with excellent leadership are clear manifestations that we can achieve our aspirations to become a professional Army serving the Filipino people,” he added.*GPB
