MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Army is eyeing to finish before the year ends the additional housing units and facilities for the members of the First Scout ranger regiment and their dependents at Camp Tecson in San Miguel, Bulacan.
In a statement, the army said the second batch of 500 houses for Scout Ranger troops aims to improve their standard living.
On the other hand, the 14-feet training pool is envisioned to enhance the warfighting capabilities of the Rangers as well as provide a recreation area for the troops.
The project is in partnership with the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC).
Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Macairog Alberto and HUDCC Chairperson Sec. Eduardo D. Del Rosario led the groundbreaking ceremony for the project last Nov. 15.
“These events certainly reflect positive changes throughout the organization, not only to the quality of professionalization of our ranks but also to the standards of living for our soldiers,” Alberto said.
In December 2018, President Rodrigo Duterte awarded the first batch of 500 units which now houses the Scout Rangers and their families.
“These new facilities will greatly boost the morale of not just our uniformed personnel but also their families. We look forward to more collaborative ventures and continuous partnership between the PA and HUDCC for the continuous development of our Armed Forces,” Alberto said.
