Army Cavaliers hold General Assembly
FORT BONIFACIO, Taguig City – Army Cavaliers gathered at the Philippine Army Officers Club House for their Annual General Assembly on February 20, Thursday with Army Chief Maj. Gen. Hernando DCA Iriberri as the Guest of Honor and Speaker.
The Army Cavaliers, who are members of the Philippine Military Academy Alumni Association, Inc. (PMAAAI) – Army Chapter, also welcomed the election of their new set of officers for the year 2014-2015 led by its newly installed President, Brig. Gen. Victor V Bayani, the Chief of the Office of Legislative Affairs, GHQ, AFP. Cavalier Bayani is a member of PMA Class 1985.
The General Assembly also served as a venue to strengthen the Army Cavaliers’ bond and partnership.
During the assembly, the former President, Cavalier Job S Yucoco of PMA Class 1984, presented the association’s summary accomplishment for the year that passed, while Cavalier Bayani laid down his plans and programs for the association during his acceptance speech.
The PMAAAI-Army Chapter is responsible for various fund-raising activities, most notable of which is the Heroes Run, which aims to raise funds for the benefit of the living heroes, combat casualties, and the soldier-athletes of the Philippine Army.
The 2nd Heroes Run which was held last December 2013 was organized to help the victims of typhoon Yolanda and to procure medical equipment for the Army General Hospital (AGH). During the assembly, this medical equipment was received by Col Villamin F Patricio, Commanding Officer of the AGH.
In his speech, Maj. Gen. Iriberri humbly urged all his fellow Army cavaliers to just do what an Army PMAer is expected to do in all their respective fields of endeavour. He further stressed that as the Army Chief, he expects no less than the whole and undivided support of all his fellow Army cavaliers in his quest of leading the Army organization towards greater heights of aspirations.
