The said battalion, formerly under the 7th Infantry Division (7ID), will be operating under 10th Infantry Division (10ID) in the Davao Region. A battalion from 10ID will be sent to 7ID.

“Hindi na bago ang patuloy na pagkakaroon ng panibagong destinasyon at panibagong liderato, for it is a mark of a good soldier and an officer to be assigned in various areas and positions of leadership as he climbs his career ladder,” 7ID commander Major General Alfredo V. Rosario Jr. said during the sent off ceremony.

“Sana ay manatiling aktibo ang Guardians Battalion at makita ng mga taga- Mindanao ang inyong kakayahang maging tunay na ‘Guardians’ sa inyong bagong tahanan. May you successfully earn the trust and respect of the people over there,” Major General Rosario added.
