EastMinCom holds traditional New Year's Call for 2023

NSFA, Panacan, Davao City
- Top military officials and all personnel of the Eastern Mindanao Command (EastMinCom) have come together as they paid a New Year's Call to EastMinCom Commander LtGen. Greg T. Almerol at the Naval Forces Eastern Mindanao (NFEM) Consolidated Mess Hall here, January 16.

Commanders of different Joint Task Forces and Brigades, together with their spouses, other Officers from Operational Control and Post Units, including the Chiefs of Offices, Staff Officers, Enlisted Personnel, and Civilian Human Resources under the EastMinCom, were all present at the event.

As one of its annual traditions, the New Year's Call served as an opportunity for the Command to celebrate its victories under the EastMinCom Campaign Plan "Kalinaw Sidlakang Mindanao" and renew the commitment and dedication of all its personnel towards attaining its mission.

It likewise served as an avenue for the Commander to convey his guidance as EastMinCom gears up for a new Campaign Plan of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), dubbed as Peace, Law Enforcement, and Development Support Plan “Pagkakaisa” 2023-2028.

During the ceremony, LtGen. Almerol also presented a "Kapayapaan Award" from the AFP to Vice-Governor Jayvee Tyron L. Uy of Davao de Oro in recognition of his significant contribution to the military in ending the communist insurgency in Davao Region last year.

The EastMinCom Commander, who led the traditional new year's toast and delivered his message, highlighted the milestones achieved by the Command in 2022 through the collaboration of its ground units, local government units and agencies, and all EastMinCom personnel.

"These accomplishments bespeak the hard work of every foot soldier, airman, and sailor in our endeavors. We are also grateful to our partner-stakeholders for the strengthened collaboration and determination to accomplish our shared aspiration," he said.

"I enjoin all of you, especially the Commanders, to march with me in unison in bringing forth more triumphs for the Command," LtGen. Almerol added as he encouraged the troops to offer their utmost dedication to service and to remain focused on the tasks they have sworn to fulfill under the flag and the constitution.

Meanwhile, in a Campaign Review and Assessment (CRA) conference held after the ceremony, LtGen. Almerol emphasized his directives anchored in the new Campaign Plan, which aims to attain total victory against all threat groups and achieve a resilient security environment.

These are to (1) Defeat the New People's Army (NPA) Komisyon Mindanao before the end of 2023; (2) Deliberately sustain the gains of EastMinCom to prevent Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) recovery; (3) Continually conduct Critical Investment, Infrastructure Protection and Security Operations (CIIPSO) to control CTG resource generation; and (4) Prepare the troops for Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response Operations (HADR).#
