Army receives new patrol cars, computers

In a turnover ceremony in Fort Bonifacio, the Philippine Army (PA) received patrol cars and computers from the Armed Forces & Police Mutual Benefit Association, Inc. (AFPMBAI) on September 16.

Army Vice Commander, Maj. Gen. Reynaldo M. Aquino received on behalf of the PA eight patrol cars, six laptops, two desktops with printers and one Uninterrupted Power Supply for the use of Army units and offices.

AFPMBAI President and CEO Retired Maj. Gen. Robert M. Arevalo said, “In furtherance of our commitment to promote the welfare of our members, your association, [AFPMBAI], credits its corporate social responsibility through its various flagship projects on education, health, livelihood and general welfare”.

In previous years, AFPMBAI projects provided hospital vehicles and equipment, computers, and support in enhancing recreational areas of the Army; in addition to the upgrade of insurance benefits received by the command’s uniformed men and women.

Currently, the association is completing the patrol car equipment for the 11th Infantry Division that will reinforce security operations in their area of responsibility.

“As we in the Philippine Army continue to serve with a strengthened resolve and firm commitment in every task that is assigned to us. I am optimistic that with the support of our stakeholders like AFPMBAI, we will successfully achieve our vision of becoming a world-class army that is a source of national pride,” said Aquino.
