Philippines : PRRD to visit another military camp in south-central Mindanao.

The soldiers of the 1002nd Brigade, Camp Herminigildo Agaab here are excited to personally meet and greet their commander-in-chief President Rodrigo Roa Duterte as he is expected to arrive at the camp this afternoon (July 5).

The Presidents hopping from one military camp to another is seen to boost the morale of soldiers who, some of them are still in a fight to secure Marawi City and ensure the safety of people from ISIS-inspired Maute group and other threat groups.

Earlier, the President said that he would be making more rounds to different military camps so he could somehow spend some time with soldiers as a way to enliven their spirits and inspire them.

Upon arrival, the President is set to view a showcase of firearms that the Brigade recovered from NPA members and other lawless elements.

He would also be ushered to a closed-door meeting where the newly-installed Brigade commander Col. Robert Ancan would give the President a situation briefing for his guidance.

The President will also deliver his speech dubbed Talk to Troops and personally award at least six deserving military personnel of the Brigade.

Afterwards, the President joins the officers and men in a boodle fight as culmination of his visit.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, Special Assistant to the President Secretary Christopher Lawrence Bong Go, among other high ranking military officials are also expected to join him in this visit.
