The 42nd Mechanized Infantry (Dahunog) Company at Nangka, Balo-i, Lanao del Norte conducted a Change of Command Ceremony for the out-going and in-coming Company Commanders of the said military unit.
It’s been a tradition of the Philippine Army to relinquish an existing Company Commander after he completed his 2 years term as commanding officer. And it is properly conducted during a Change of Command Ceremony.
Last September 16, 2016, the 42nd Mechanized Infantry Company conducted the said event to relieved former company commander CPT ROMMEL ENDOZO and appointed CPT JOVANE ROBLE as the new commanding officer. The ceremony was presided by COL ALEX T ADUCA, Battalion Commander of the 4th Mechanized Infantry (Kalasag) Battalion.
The ceremony were attended by the dependents of the out-going and in-coming commanders, local municipal and brgy officials of the municipality of Balo-i and Pantar of Lanao del Norte. We were also there (Ptr Plass Quiling and Ptr Bhong Ramos) to witness the ceremony and to lead the opening prayer and declaration of thanksgiving and blessings for our two commanding officers.
CCOP has been in Philippine Army ministry for more than six (6) years already.
