Govt troops commemorate 126th PH Independence Day

SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte (PIA) -- The 4th Infantry (Diamond) Division Philippine Army joined the celebration of the 126th Philippine Independence Day anchored on the theme, "Kalayaan, Kinabukasan, Kasaysayan," on June 12.

4ID Commander Major General Jose Maria R. Cuerpo II, accompanied by the 901st Brigade Commander Brigadier General Arsenio DC Sadural, joined the Surigaonons in celebrating the 126th Philippine Independence Day at the City Hall Ground, Surigao City. 

Meanwhile, troops from 4ID participated in a simultaneous flag-raising ceremony spearheaded by Brigadier General George L Banzon, assistant division commander of 4ID, held inside Camp Evangelista. In addition, 4ID gave full military honors to the Monument of Heroes at Provincial Capitol Ground and Plaza Divisoria, in this city.

In a message delivered by BGen. Banzon, Lt. Gen. Roy M Galido, the commanding general of the Philippine Army, gave his warmest greetings to the men and women of Philippine Army and reminded everyone of the heroic sacrifices of our forefathers which served as the foundation of the freedom we enjoyed today. 

"Sa mga opisyal, kawal, at kawani ng Hukbong Katihan ng Pilipinas, huwag natin sayangin ang kanilang nasimulan. Bagkus, atin ipagpatuloy ang kanilang ipinaglaban, para sa Kalayaan ng ating bagong Pilipinas. Nararapat lamang na ating isa-puso't isipan ang mga aral ng kasaysayan na siyang sumasailalim sa natatanging kagitingan at hindi mapapantayan pagmamahal ng ating mga ninuno sa ating inang bayan. Sa ating sama-samang paglahok sa flag-raising ceremony na ito ay simbolo ng ating pagkakaisa at pagmamahal na walang kapantay na ipagpatuloy ang kanilang ipinaglaban na kalayaan ng ating tinatamasa sa kasalukuyan," Banzon relayed.

On his part,  MGen. Cuerpo underscored the importance of unity and convergence efforts of all stakeholders, various entities, and the general populace in the attainment of peace and security in the 4ID area of responsibilities. 

"On this Independence Day, let us not only celebrate our freedom but also remember the struggles and sacrifices made to attain it. With the combined efforts of the stakeholders, local government units, and various agencies, Surigao has developed progressively and peacefully due to the dismantling and weakening of the remaining forces of the communist terrorist groups. Let us honor the legacy of those who came before us and pledged to defend our nation's sovereignty with unwavering loyalty and determination," said Cuerpo. (4ID Philippine Army/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
