LtGen Catapang also said that they should remain non-partisan and must continue to work in the service of the people amidst issues surrounding the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).

"Let us continue to work together, no unnecessary business for we are all being taken good care of by our commander-in-chief," he said.

"There's a new war that we are about to face now that we are slowly addressing insurgency and that is the globalized challenges of the 21st century which include global terrorism, global climate change, global maritime concern, global transnational crimes, and proliferation of weapons of mass destructions," he said.

Prior to his visit to the major services, LtGen Catapang toured Northern Luzon Command in Tarlac where he served as Commander, and the 1st Air Division in Clark. He is also expected to visit AFP unified command headquarters in the coming days.​
