CSAFP calls on soldiers to renew commitment to AFP values

CAMP GENERAL EMILIO AGUINALDO, Quezon City – At the start of the first observance of “Armed Forces of the Filipino People Week,” General Hernando DCA Iriberri, Chief of Staff Armed Forces of the Philippines (CSAFP), called on every soldier to renew their commitment to the values of the AFP.

“Let us renew our commitment to the values of honor, service and patriotism,” Gen Iriberri said.

During his speech at the flag raising ceremony in Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo today (August 24), Gen Iriberri reminded soldiers, airmen and sailors of AFP to remember the courageous sacrifices of members of the AFP to inspire them to fulfill their duty to the Filipino people.

“For the first time in our history as an institution and in the history of our nation…we highlight the role of officers and personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines in the accomplishment of our nation’s goals through the years,” Gen Iriberri added.
By virtue of Republic Act No. 10664, otherwise known as “An Act Declaring the Last Full Week of August as Armed Forces of the Filipino People Week,” the last week of August will be spent in the observance of “Armed Forces of the Filipino People Week” starting this year.

Gen Iriberri said the declaration should give every AFP member “more reason to do the best, be the best on the frontline, in the community and every instance of our service.”
The law was approved by President Benigno Simeon Aquino III on July 6, 2015, “to give due recognition to the important role and contribution of past and present Filipino Military Officers and personnel.”

Under this law, the Department of National Defense (DND) is mandated to urge all citizens to recognize the event and by holding programs and activities in its observance.
