Oceana Philippines looking
for ‘heroes of Tañon Strait'

Oceana Philippines is calling on the public to nominate individuals who have contributed to protecting Tañon Strait, between the islands of Negros and Cebu.

The nominees will vie for the first “Ocean Heroes Award”, Oceana said Monday in a media release as the country celebrated National Heroes' Day.

“We are looking for heroes who inspire us and have shown that we can be agents of change to protect and conserve the beauty and bounty of Tañon Strait,” Gloria Estenzo Ramos, vice president of Oceana Philippines, said.

1,920 soldiers promoted

A total of 1,920 soldiers of the Army's 3 rd Infantry Division assigned in Negros and Panay were promoted, and Maj. Rey Tiongson, 3ID Public Affairs Office chief, yesterday said these include 940 corporals, 580 sergeants, 293 staff sergeants, 57 technical sergeants, and 50 master sergeants.

Tiongson said they have satisfactorily satisfied the requirements set by the Philippine Army's Promotion System after their Individual Evaluation record, which gauged a soldier's competency and reputation in the service, were placed under scrutiny.

Other requirements that were satisfied include a required minimum number of years in one's current rank, passing grade on a competitive promotional examination, completion of a career military occupational specialty course, physical and neurological-psychological examination and physical fitness test.
