Retiring EastMinCom chief  lauds JTF Diamond’s accomplishments 

OUTGOING Eastern Mindanao Command (EastMinCom) chief Lieutenant General Greg T. Almerol lauded the accomplishments of the Joint Task Force Diamond (JTFD) in ensuring peace and development in its area of operations.

In the Talk to Troops during his farewell visit at the Montalvan Hall at Camp Evangelista, Barangay Patag, Cagayan de Oro City on March 5, Almerol commended the JTFD’s successful operations resulting in significant gains against the communist terrorist group (CTG), such as the dismantling of nine guerilla fronts, neutralization of 208 high-value individuals, the capture of 2,205 firearms, and the neutralization of 1,505 CTG members under his stint as the EastMinCom commander for more than three years.

“Your dedication has been the cornerstone of our collective success, transporting Mindanao into a beacon of peace under your vigilant watch. Over the years, your resilience and commitment have propelled us to become the foremost unified command of the Armed Forces of the Philippines,” Almerol said.

“Your relentless pursuit of strategic victory in your area of operation has not only set a commendable example but has also exceeded initial aspirations marking a triumph for us all,” he added.

Meanwhile, Major General Jose Maria R. Cuerpo II, commander of the 4ID and the JTFD, expressed his profound gratitude to Almerol for the support and guidance, which greatly impacted the overall performance of the Diamond troopers, leading to mission accomplishments.
