Iloilo City — The new commander of the Philippine Army’s 3rd Infantry Division (3ID) vowed to pursue efforts to peace in the Visayas.
“We shall perform our collective roles as protectors of the people, peace builders and social workers,” said Major General Jon Aying.
Last November 24, Aying replaced Major General Harold Cabreros as commander of the Army command that covers Panay, Negros, Cebu, Bohol, Guimaras, and Siquijor Islands.
Cabreros was promoted to Army vice commander.
In his inaugural address, Aying said the long-term goal of defeating the communist insurgency can be achieved through a program dubbed as “Seven Angels of Change.”
