118 new soldiers pass basic infantry training

ONE-HUNDRED eighteen new soldiers of the 4th Infantry Division completed their Basic Military Training (BMT) and Infantry Orientation Course (INFOC) at the 4th Division Training School in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon on Friday, Oct. 20.

4ID spokesperson Major Francisco Garello Jr. said the newly minted soldiers who belonged to the Candidate Soldier Course (CSC) “Lagablab” Class 782-2023 were composed of 112 males and six females.

They underwent four months of rigorous physical training since June this year, developed valuable teamwork skills, and acquired the knowledge necessary to serve with honor and distinction.

Major General Jose Maria R. Cuerpo II, commander of the 4ID, graced the occasion together with other 4ID Officers, the training directorate of 4DTS, stakeholders, and families and friends.

In his message, Cuerpo congratulated the new graduates for exhibiting unwavering dedication, discipline, and resilience, which are the hallmarks of a true Diamond trooper. 

He encouraged them to maintain a high degree of discipline as they embarked on the real world of combat and non-combat missions. 

“Let us work together to achieve our given mission. Embrace discipline as it is the bedrock of a strong military. It is very essential not only for your safety but for the successful execution of our mission to serve the people and secure the land. May this serve as your guide in performing your mandate in the years to come,” he added.

Moreover, Cuerpo also thanked the families of the new graduates, recognizing the crucial support they have provided throughout the training process. He further encouraged them to continue supporting the new soldiers as they carry on with their service to the people.

The said graduates will subsequently undergo the Infantry orientation course, a 45-day specialization phase training.
