The Armed Forces of the Philippines, Eastern Mindanao Command joined and participated in the celebration of the 78th Araw ng Davao. The group of in uniformed military personnel joined the yearly parade together with other contingents from Magsaysay Avenue going to the City Hall Drive, San Pedro. The parade started at 8:00 am and ended at roughly 1:30 pm. While other contingents showcase their products and services, the AFP showcase its personnel and military weapons, equipments and vehicles as its military capabilities.

In this year’s theme, “AFP: INYONG KAAGAPAY TUNGO SA KAPAYAPAAN AT KAUNLARAN,” this aims to make people understand that the AFP has a big role in nation building. It aims to emphasize that its relation with the civilians is important in the making and in the attainment of peace ad development. Since there are lots of threats in peace and order in the areas covered by EastMinCom brought by recent attacks made by the New People’s Army such as areas of Bukidnon, Marilog and Agusan del Sur, the theme also emphasizes that the AFP is dead-serious in combatting the atrocities posed by the NPAs and other rebel groups.

In this event, the EastMinCom have showed its eagerness to participate and be one with the people of Davao in the celebration of the foundation of the city.

Happy 78th Araw ng Davao!
