Retired Army Couple in Maribojoc, Bohol

     Maribojoc, Bohol - A husband-and-wife tandem, on their blissful retirement, found it apt to partake their expertise to police officers.

      Retired Army Brigadier Gen. Jess Ranjo and Boholana wife Shirley Gantan-Ranjo- -the first highest ranking Women’s Auxiliary Corps (WAC) officer and now a retired colonel, recently trained their guns on the town’s police team, a fitting aftermath of their May 18 badge of honor ceremonies.

      The civic-minded military couple shared their expertise with this town’s men and women in uniform at the Maribojoc sports and cultural center in a half-day gun handling and safety tips briefing.

      Seventeen members of the Philippine National Police joined the orientation aimed at evolving a more effective police work based on the standard set by Mayor Leoncio Evasco Jr., a staunch advocate of peace initiatives.

      In an interview at his office at the police station building, Police Senior Insp. George Arellano Badon expressed apprehension upon hearing that no police officer won in a shooting contest at Bilar town recently where  the governor’s son, Aries Aumentado, humbled his rivals for the most-coveted sharpshooter’s title.

      He then advised one of his men to contact the Ranjo couple for the needed skills training for his subordinates.

      It was coincidence that the two retired top ranking Philippine Army brasses were in town when the municipality conducted its historic badge of honor rites Monday last week.

      Col. Shirley Ranjo, a national table tennis champion during her student days at the St. Vincent Institute and the then Rafael Palma College (now University of Bohol), found it easy to convince her better-half for the gun-handling safety tips orientation.

      The briefing session ended at 4:30 pm on the first day.

      The skills practice or practicum was supposedly scheduled the following day, but unfavorable weather forced the trainers to cancel it.

      A veteran in many battles, Gen. Ranjo looked after the safety of the participants.

      The practicum has been postponed to an indefinite date, or when the couple returns.

      The Ranjos advocate efficient police work through shooting expertise and gun handling.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
