THE newly-promoted and newly-assigned officers of the 1st Infantry "Tabak" Division (ID) have been advised to work with passion and dedication in order to contribute to the attainment of the command's mission.
Major General Generoso Ponio, 1ID commander, issued the advice, as he donned the ranks to two newly-promoted officers and one enlisted personnel during the flag raising ceremony Monday, January 25, at Camp Major Cesar Sang-an in Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur.
Promoted to captains were 1st Lieutenant Yvonne P Ricaforte and 1st Lieutenant Edelyn E. Glarian, while Master Sergeant Melchor P. Bitara was promoted to Senior Master Sergeant.
Ponio congratulated the three for their promotions.
Ponio also welcomed the six officers who were newly-assigned to his command during the activity.
Ponio led the pinning of the "Tabak" patches to the six officers as a welcome gesture to the newly assigned trooper.
"Work with passion and dedication in order to contribute to the attainment of command's mission," he told the newly-promoted and newly-assigned officers of the command. (SunStar Zamboanga)
