EMC Commemorates Activation, Recognizes Peace Partners

NSFA, Panacan, Davao City - "EMC @ 12: Strengthened by Change and Fortified by Unity in Advancing Security, Peace, and Development for Eastern Mindanao."

This was the theme of Eastern Mindanao Mindanao Command as it commemorates its 12th Founding Anniversary.

On August 23, 2018, the Command, under the leadership of Lt. Gen. Benjamin R. Madrigal, Jr. celebrated its 12th Anniversary at the Naval Station Felix Apolinario, Panacan, Davao City. It was graced by the Commander-in-Chief President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and was attended by the AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Carlito G. Galvez, former Commanders of EMC, heads of National Government Agencies, and other civilian guests.

The highlight of the celebration was the presentation of awards to military and civilian personnel and recognition of key stakeholders who contributed to the successful mission-accomplishment of the Command for the year, which was led by the President himself. He also met the IP leaders, and former NPA leaders and members who were present during the event.

Lt. Gen. Madrigal, on the other hand, presented to the President some 1,018 recovered and surrendered firearms from the NPA within the area of responsibility of the Command, and its other accomplishments for the year which was above and beyond the expected target.

In his message, the President congratulated the Eastern Mindanao Command for its performance and new milestone, and also encouraged other members of the NPA to surrender.
