Philippine Army in Mawab
« on: November 17, 2010, 04:22:04 pm »
The headquarters of the four-brigade, 6,000-strong 10th Infantry Division (ID) of the Philippine Army will be transferred from Camp Felix Apolinario, Panacan in Davao City to the military hill camp at Tuboran, Mawab, this province by December, this year.

Col. Domingo Tutaan, 1003rd Brigade commander, in his recent courtesy visit to City Mayor Rey Uy, said the 10th ID has the four brigades under its command -- the 1001st Infantry Brigade covering Compostela Valley, the 1002nd IB for Davao del Sur, the 1003rd IB under him and for Davao del Norte and the rural areas of Davao City, and the 701st IB for Davao Oriental.

Tutaan said under 1003rd IB are the 60th Infantry Batallion and 3rd Special Force for Davao del Norte and Laak, Compostela Valley, and the 84th IB and 69th IB for Davao City.

A batallion is composed of some 450 soldiers, and Tutaan alone has some 1,350 men under his brigade, which is in Asuncion.

The 10th ID came from the split of the Zamboanga-based Southern Command (Southcom), the largest unified command of the military in Mindanao, made by former President Arroyo in late 2006 for more effective troop management and control. It is in charge for the Southeastern Mindanao.

The Tuboran Hill at the centre point along Mawab zigzag cliff has been a headquarters home of various Army infantry brigades and batallions since the early '80s.

Meanwhile, Mayor Uy said with the latest development in the military is expected to further spark the economy of Tagum City.

He said huge purchases on foodstuffs and supplies made by the division would practically be made in nearby Tagum City.

Besides the foodstuffs and supplies that would be procured from the city, Army men coming from different locations would most likely spend for their rest and recreation (R&R) during off-duty hours in the city which has lively sexy pubs, disco, videoke and drinking joints at night.

But already, Col. Tutaan has warned soldiers that Army officials will not tolerate and will deal sternly with soldiers who make misdemeanors in public while having R & R in Tagum City and other towns.

He conveyed to Mayor Uy that he has been reminding his soldiers if somebody among them commits misdemeanor in public and violates a law, he will be put behind prison bars by the police and the Army will pursue administrative charges against him. - pna
