NOLCOM Plants Bamboo for AFP’s 79th Founding Anniversary Celebration
CAMP AQUINO, Tarlac City -- The Northern Luzon Command, conducted a Bamboo Tree Planting activity at the creek line of the Military Police Area in Camp General Servillano Aquino, San Miguel, Tarlac City on December 17, 2014, which is the first among the command’s series of activities in commemoration of the AFP’s 79th Founding Anniversary with the theme: “Sandatahang Lakas: Pitumpu’t- Siyam Taong Naglilingkod ng Tapat Tungo sa Kapayapaan, Kaunlaran at Kasaganahan”. The celebration is from December 17-22, 2014.
The Assistant Chief of Unified Command Staff for Civil-Military Operation, U7 headed by LTC JULIUS MIRANDA spearheaded the said activity and participated in by the officers and men of NOLCOM. Bamboo was planted due to its efficient absorption of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and its ability to prevent soil erosion. This effort will contribute to the country’s effort for climate change mitigation.
NOLCOM Commander, LTGEN FELICITO VIRGILIO M TRINIDAD JR said, “We started the AFP’s 79th Founding Anniversary Celebration with a tree planting activity to symbolize our role as ecological care takers and the first responder role in times of disasters and calamities. We are always in the forefront when these events occur and we have to take actions to mitigate its effects to the people and environment. Our DRRO mission compels us to take actions in preparedness and mitigation.
