Press Release: AFP renders Military Honor for late President Noynoy Aquino

CAMP AGUINALDO, Quezon City – The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Friday rendered traditional gun salute in military camps to honor the late former President and Commander-in-Chief, Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III.

“We give our Former President and Commander-in-Chief our snappiest salute and our pledge to continue to perform our mandate. The banner of his legacy will continue to fly on the hallowed grounds of our camps anywhere in the country,” AFP Chief of Staff General Cirilito Sobejana said in a statement.

The eight-gun salute were simultaneously fired in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City; Fort Andres Bonifacio in Taguig City; Jesus Villamor Air Base in Pasay City; Fort Abad in Manila; Fort Gregorio del Pilar in Baguio City; and in all AFP Unified Command Headquarters in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

The military honors are performed throughout the day starting with the eight-gun fire during the reveille time at 5:00am, followed by a gun fire every half-hour beginning 6:00am until the retreat time at 5:00pm. After which, another eight-gun salute are fired.

At 10:00am, all troops in all military camps, stations and bases assembled for the official reading of the Notice of Death of the former President. Meanwhile, the National Flag is displayed at half-mast in all AFP camps.

General Sobejana speaking on behalf of the whole AFP acknowledged and hoped to immortalize the late president’s legacy as the 15th President of the Philippines.

“With wisdom and prudence, President Aquino steadfastly steered our country towards economic stability and through the many disasters and challenges that we faced during his term as our leader,” he said.

During his term, President Aquino advocated the strengthening of the country’s defense and security capabilities. The Republic Act No. 10349 was enacted under his presidency to revitalize the slow-paced AFP modernization program.

With the advent of the Internal Peace and Security Plan- Bayanihan, the former President also encouraged the AFP to adopt an inclusive approach towards security, where every Filipino is a stakeholder in the goal to achieve just and lasting peace.

“We honor and recognize the support and encouragement he had given us as we began our journey towards genuine transformation in our organization. This transformation paved the way for the professionalization of our troops and the inculcation of critical ethos such as accountability, transparency, and respect for human rights that we hold and value dearly today,” General Sobejana said.///

John 3:16-18 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
