Scout Rangers, Army Cyber Defense Teams receive recognition

After bagging awards for the Philippine Army, the Scout Ranger Team and Army Cyber Defense Team respectively receive recognition today, Oct. 21, here.

“The accomplishments of the Scout Ranger Team and the PA Cyber Defense Team are affirmations that we are on track and on target along our journey of transformation,” said Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Macairog S. Alberto who led the ceremony.

The Army Scout Ranger Team was awarded a silver medal during the Exercise Cambrian Patrol 2019 in Wales, United Kingdom. The Rangers were able to successfully execute various military operations in the Cambrian Mountains despite extreme weather and terrain conditions. They were among the 140 international military teams that participated in the event from Oct. 14 to 16.

On the other hand, the Army Cyber Defense Team was awarded the “Best Defense Team” after being hailed as the over-all champion in the cyber defense exercise category of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Joint Exercise Dagat-Langit-Lupa (AJEX DAGIT-PA) last Sept. 16 to 27. The PA Cyber Team’s prowess was put to test as they performed capabilities in protecting, detecting and responding to cyber-attacks.

“Be it on the frontlines on the ground or in cyberspace, the Philippine Army will continue to innovate and level up. This definitely means that we are reaching our goal of becoming a world-class Army,” added Alberto. PHILIPPINE ARMY
