Guerrero to lead MARINA


Outgoing Armed Forces chief of staff General Rey Leonardo Guerrero, who had served Negrenses for several years, is rejoining the government after his extended retirement on April 18.

President Rodrigo Duterte had announced earlier that he will designate Guerrero as the next Maritime Industry Authority chief, upon his retirement.

Guerrero, who previously served as commander of the 61st Infantry Battalion in southern Negros and later as commanding general of the 3rd Infantry Division, was supposed to retire from the military service in December last year, upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 56.

However, his tenure as AFP chief of staff was extended for four months.

Duterte has chosen Western Mindanao Command chief Lieutenant General Carlito Galvez as the next AFP chief of staff .

Both Galvez and Guerrero are members of the Philippine Military Academy Class 1984.

Guerrero is joining more than other 50 AFP and PNP retired generals, who are now occupying various civilian positions in the government.

The appointment of Galvez as incoming AF chief of staff is expected to trigger a reshuffling of military key positions.*GPB
