THE 3rd class cadets of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class 2017 is holding series of silent drill exhibitions starting Monday, April 21, in Zamboanga City, a military official said.
Western Mindanao Command (Westmincom) information officer Captain Maria Rowena Muyuela said the silent drill exhibitions are part of the PMA’s annual Southern Cruise for calendar year 2014.
Muyuela said the silent drill exhibitions will showcase the finest movements in military marching and formation.
The schedules of silent drills are as follows: Paseo del Mar, April 21; Naval Forces Western Mindanao headquarters, April 22; and, Westmincom headquarters, April 23.
Muyuela said the main highlight of the Southern Cruise is to promote PMA in the different areas in order to recruit the best, brightest and the fittest applicants for the military service.
Muyuela said the cadets will also be oriented in the different Armed Forces of the Philippines units that will help them choose among the branch of service they will serve--the Army, the Navy or the Air Force--after graduating from the academy.
“This is a continuing activity, after the successful conduct of the Southern Cruises for PMA classes 2014 and 2015 in the past two years--a revival after 20 years,” she added.
She said that Zamboanga City is one of the ports of call selected to include Davao City, Cebu City, Cavite, Corregidor Island and Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
