Col. Benedict Arevalo, 301st Infantry Brigade commander, has replaced Col. Alberto Desoyo as 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, effective Monday.
Desoyo, meanwhile, replaced Arevalo as commander of the 301st Infantry Brigade in Panay.
Arevalo is not a stranger to his new assignment in Negros. He use d to be an intelligence officer of the 302nd Infantry (Achiever) Brigade in Negros Island from 1994-1995, and then 1996-1998. He also served as intelligence and operations officer of the defunct 3rd ID’s 7th Infantry Battalion from 1992-1994.
This time, Arevalo is facing a bigger responsibility, as he will supervise four Army battalions in Negros, being the new commander of the 303rd Infantry Brigade.
Desoyo yesterday confirmed that he is now the new commander of the 301st Infantry Brigade stationed in Dingle, Iloilo.
Arevalo belongs to the Philippine Military Academy Class 1990. He has two other siblings serving the AFP, who are also graduates of PMA.*
