BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

 

The 303rd Infantry Brigade’s Army Exhibit at the Ayala Malls Capitol Central grounds in Bacolod City in observance of the 121st Independence Day celebration has been extended until tomorrow in celebration of Father’s Day.

Army Capt. Franco Ver Lopez, Brigade Civil Military Officer, said the exhibit with the theme “Tribute to Heroes” displays their firepower and military equipment used in their day to day military combat operations, as well as in providing humanitarian assistance, like search and rescue operations.

Lopez said the mall has requested 303rd IB commander Brig. Gen. Benedict Arevalo to extend the exhibit because of the clamor of the public. So they have decided to extend the static display until tomorrow for the celebration of Father’s Day.

The exhibit opened Tuesday and was supposed to end Wednesday, he said.

They also have a photo exhibit of the accomplishments, humanitarian assistance, medical missions, tree planting, blood-letting activities, and Civil Military Civic Action Programs of the Philippine Army in Negros Occidental, Lopez said.

On display are different army vehicles like Commando V-150 tank, M35 Cargo Truck, KM 451 Field Ambulance, and high powered firearms like K3 Squad Automatic Weapon, M30 General Purpose Machine Gun, .50 Caliber Machine Gun, bomb suit, and rescue equipments.*
