4ID Commander visit troops in far-flung FOD, awards troops for recent accomplishment against CTG

CAMP EVANGELISTA, Cagayan de Oro City – Major General Jose Maria R. Cuerpo II, Commander of the 4th Infantry (Diamond) Division, visited troops deployed in far-flung Forward Operating Detachment (FOD) in Brgy. Binicalan, San Luis, Agusan del Sur on August 24, 2023.

FOD Kamalangan, as one of the remotest communities in the province with no roads and only passable by foot, is one of the FODs established by 4ID in its AOR to sustain military operations at the hardly reached far-flung areas and at the heart of CTG’s traditional hideouts and routes.

MGen. Cuerpo II, during his visit at the FOD, led the pinning of ranks to three (3) newly-promoted personnel as part of the 4ID’s thrust to further boost the morale of the troops assigned in remote areas and check on their current operational readiness and situation.

Meanwhile, early on that day, MGen. Cuerpo also visited the troops of Charlie Company of 8th Infantry Battalion in Brgy. Caburacanan, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon highlighted with the awarding of medals for the recent combat accomplishment last Wednesday, August 23, 2023 in Sitio Lagaslasan, Barangay Kulaman, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

Maj. Gen. Cuerpo II personally pinned the award of Military Merit Medal with Bronze Spearhead Device (BSD) and Military Merit Medal with BSD (Interim to Gold Cross Award) to the nine (9) members of Charlie Company, 8IB for demonstrating gallantry in action and going above and beyond their duty to protect the communities in their area of responsibility against the atrocities of the CTG.

Said successful operation resulted to the neutralization of top CTG leader Christopher Tingkayan alias Mojen/Gamot, 23 years old, the so-called Commanding Officer of Headquarters Force NEO, Regional Operations Command (ROC) of the North Central Mindanao Regional Committee (NCMRC), and the capture of six (6) high-powered firearms and various war materiel.

“Our soldiers are our most important resource. Their bravery, being in the frontline and risking their lives to fight the enemies, is a noble act that deserves to be honored and highly acknowledged. As we go on and continue our relentless focused military operations against the CTG criminals, the 4ID further commits to fully support them and provide the necessary assistance and capabilities they need. Moreover, with this accomplishment, we shall not rest our laurels, for this is the best time to push further and even harder to totally defeat the CPP-NPA criminals,” MGen Cuerpo said.
