FORT MAGSAYSAY, Nueva Ecija – 7th Infantry Division (7th ID) Commander Major General Andrew D. Costelo cited mediamen covering the military beat here for the huge role they are playing in helping the Philippine Army in its campaign to crush insurgency during the administration of President Duterte.

Costelo hosted a media fellowship-cum-dinner party with members of the Kaugnay Media Defense Press Corps Inc. (KMDPCI) here and also swore in its newly-elected officers headed by its president Jordan Ilustre during oath-taking rites held at the Fort Magsaysay military headquarters here on Saturday night.

The 7th ID chief cited the KMDPCI for its role in information dissemination in the army’s intensified efforts to end the local communist armed conflict.

“Sa mga bagong talagang officers ng Kaugnay Media Defense Corps Inc., tanggapin niyo po ang aming malugod na pagbati. Nawa’y mai-pagpatuloy niyo po ang magagandang hangarin ng organisasyon at patuloy kayong maging katuwang ng kasundaluhan sa pagsusulong ng mga programang pangkaunlaran at pangkapayapaan dito sa ating nasasakupan. Makaaasa po kayo na kami sa 7th ID Philippine Army ay patuloy na makikiisa at maghahatid ng ibayong suporta sa ating mga alagad ng media,” said Costelo.

He added: “Sa pamamagitan ng ating pinag-isang layunin, kooperasyon at responsableng paglilingkod para sa bayan, sama-sama po nating malalagpasan ang mga hamon ng pandemya at mga iba’t ibang hamon ng ating pamumuhay.”
