ISULAN, Sultan Kudarat — Central Mindanao’s military top commander Major General Diosdado Carreon said the reservists have a “bigger role” in the government’s fight against terrorism and syndicated criminals, especially those involved in the trade and distribution of illegal drugs.

Carreon, commander of the 6th Infantry Division (6ID) and head of the Army-led Joint Task Force Central made the remarks yesterday (Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2020) afternoon during the graduation rite of the 242 trainees who graduated the 45-day “Special Basic Citizen Military Training.”

The said 242 trainees, including a local-based photo-journalist, are coming from the towns of Palimbang, Lambayong, President Quirino and Esperanza, all located in Sultan Kudarat province.

The graduation ceremony took place inside the camp of the 12th Regional Community Defense Group (RCDG) of the Army Reserve Command (ARESCOM) in Kalawag 1 in Isulan, Sultan Kudarat.

“Malaki ang role ninyo sa pag-gather ng information sa inyong respective communities,” Carreon said in his speech.

Carreon said, “through monitoring and reporting of suspected personalities and illegal activities, makakatulong kayo ng malaki.”

Carreon reminded the newly-graduated reservists “to always display good conduct” and he is expecting them to be “a law-abiding citizen” in their localities.

“Huwag kayong maging mayabang dahil mga reservist na kayo. Protect your uniforms. Serve your communities to the full extent of goodness,” Carreon stressed.
