31D head bids farewell


Maj. Gen. Dinoh Dolina, 3rd Infantry Division commander, yesterday said goodbye to Army troops in Negros Island, whom he cited for his accomplishments as Army commander of Western and Central Visayas.

“All the accomplishment I received as your commander are because of all of your efforts. It's not for me, but it's for all of you,” Dolina told the 303rd Infantry Brigade troopers, whom he visited Camp Maj. Nelson Gerona in Murcia town, Negros Occidental, yesterday.

Dolina is scheduled to retire from the military service on Nov. 14. He, however, will relinquish the command of the 3rd Infantry Division to his successor, who has yet to be identified, two days earlier.

The name of Brig. Gen. Eric Vinuya, assistant division commander of 3ID and concurrent Joint Task Force Negros chief, has surfaced as among the candidates for the position to be vacated by Dolina.

There are six Army battalions under the supervision of 3ID in Negros, Panay and Bohol.

Dolina will reach the mandatory retirement age of 56 on Nov. 14.*
