CAMP ELIAS ANGELES, Pili, Camarines Sur – Nakiisa ang Philippine Army sa Bikol sa     sambayananang Pilipino   sa Paggunita sa Kadakilaan at Kabayanihan ni Gat Dr.Jose P. Rizal sa kanyang ika-117 taon ng pagiging Martir. Nagsagawa ng Flag Raising Ceremony at maikling programa ang Lungsod ng Naga at Wreathlaying Ceremony naman sa Bayan ng Pili.

Sa mensaheng ipinarating ni 9th Infantry Division Commander Maj. Gen. Yerson E. Depayso, isinalarawan nito si Rizal na isa sa pinakamagiting na Pilipino na nabuhay sa kanyang panahon na dapat ikarangal   at pamarisan ng kasalukuyang henerasyon. Hinangad niya ang ating   kalayaan sa mapayapang pamamaraan gamit ang angking talino at mga nailimbag na aklat na nagbukas sa kaisipan ng mga Pilipino na magkaisa laban sa mapangahas na mga kastila.

Ayon pa kay Depayso, may mahalaga rin na naiambag si Rizal na naisulat para sa mga sundalo at ito ang mga kataga sa ingles na “ I want to give an example to my people, I write not for myself nor for my glory but for my country. Hence, I prefer truth to fame. May my countrymen also sacrifice their passions for the welfare of the country, may   they not seek their good in honors, employments, bribes, and adulations but in virtues that distinguish and adorn free peoples”.

Kabilang sa mga dumalo sa okasyon sa Bayan ng Pili si Camarines Sur Vice Governor Ato Pena, mga lokal na opisyal ng nasabing bayan, PNP, Bureau of Fire, iba pang uniform services at Philippine Army kung saan nirepresentani Lt.

The recent encounter between soldiers of 49th Infantry Battalion and New People’s Army yesterday morning at Brgy Sinuknipan, Del Gallego, Camarines Sur resulted to the killing of a top-ranking NPA red fighter of the Bicol Regional Party Committee. He is the mastermind on the launching of numerous offensives against the military and atrocities to innocent civilians. His combat experience in almost all of the provinces within the region from Masbate to Camarines Norte and to the island of Catanduanes and his leadership thereof earned him a permanent sit in the high-level organ of the BRPC aside from being the CO of the RYG.

A former rebel revealed that the killed NPA yesterday is also known as AL/ INGKIT/ ARJUN and is presently the CO of the Regional Yunit Guerilla of the Bicol Regional Party Committee. The NPA’s real identity is Aldrin Rabulan, native of Brgy Baras, Donsol, Sorsogon. Among the more recent popular offensives in his record include: Raid of Municipal Police Stations of Bagamanoc in 2002 and San Lorenzo Ruiz in 2003. In 2004, his group was responsible in the abduction of LT Fidelino, an Army Officer and 1 soldier of 42nd Infantry Battalion at Brgy Banga, Tinambak, Camarines Sur which took several months of negotiations and the raids in Sta. Magdalena detachment and Coast Guard patrol base in Matnog, Sorsogon. His group also attacked an army detachment in Brgy San Jose, San Vicente, Camarines Norte on August 2009. In 2012, he was also the leader on the attack of Maut detachment in Labo, Cam Norte which resulted to the killing of four personnel and a civilian, wounding of one military and one civilian, several high-powered firearms were also seized including the cal. 45 pistol (recovered in the possession of @INGKIT) was the issued pistol of Lt Estrebillo, team leader of said team. Early this year, the encounter at Agaw-Aw, Ragay Camarines Sur resulted to the killing of a Civilian Active Auxiliary and wounding of two soldiers, an M14 was also seized from the military troops.

Just yesterday, the military recovered one (1) cal.45 pistol, one (1) shot gun, two (2) laptop computers, 7 cellphones and two back packs.

9ID Commander BGen Yerson E Depayso reiterates his call to our brothers to go back to the folds of our government and live peacefully with their families. The “Guns for Peace” program of our government can be availed for them to help them return to the mainstream society. May this incident send a message to the exploited NPA members who are still hiding in the mountain. Fighting the government with the use of violence that brings destruction to human lives and properties is not the right and moral thing to do. They could serve their countrymen better if they will resort to peaceful means of effecting reforms in the society. The death of one NPA is unnecessary and could have been prevented.

"The military, with the support of PRO5, PNP and the LGU of Bulan, Sorsogon, will facilitate the transport of at least 120 tons of relief goods prepared by DSWD Region 5 to the typhoon devastated municipalities of Eastern Samar. LTGEN CAESAR RONNIE ORDOYO, Comdr of the AFP's Southern Luzon Command (SOLCOM) was able to secure the services of the Monte Carlo Seafright, Inc. for the availability of its cargo vessel to transport the relief goods that will benefit at least 15,000 families. The cargo vessel is expected to arrive Bulan Port in Sorsogon province anytime on Thursday, Dec 5. The 9th Infantry (Spear) Division, Philippine Army deployed at least six (6) vehicles starting Wednesday to preposition relief goods at the Bulan Port. Army personnel from the 31st Inf Bn and the LGU of Bulan, Sorsogon will do Bayanihan activities to transfer the relief goods from the military trucks to the cargo vessel docked at the Bulan Port. The PNP in Region 5 provides the manpower for the loading of the relief goods at the Albay Astrodome. This would be a difficult task to undertake considering the many shuttles that we have to make to complete the delivery of more or less 4,000 sacks of relief goods over a distance of more than 120 kilometers. We pray for strength, fair weather and good performance of our vehicles to accomplish this noble task".
