Here's a closer look at the white ship that I posted about here http://www.timawa.net/forum/index.php?topic=17795.msg165445#msg165445.  There's even a small sailboat.  Looks like a private yacht to me.  This is supposed to be a PN pier right? Maybe they are CG Auxiliaries?

It appears to be a Bessang Pass class SAR boat of the PCG. Supposedly non-operational.

NAVFORSOL’S Flagship Serves Albayanos
By: LIEUTENANT DARWIN F NIEVA PN
Director, NFSL Public Affairs Office

http://navyspeak.blogspot.com/2009/09/navforsols-flagship-serves-albayanos.html

LEGAZPI CITY, September 19, 2009 – “Ang Philippine Navy o Hukbong Dagat ay napakahalaga dahil pinangangalagaan nito ang ating bansa laban sa mga dayuhan na gustong sakupin ang ating bansa, sa mga taong may masasamang loob at sa mga sumisira sa ating mga likas na yaman. Ang Philippine Navy ay nagpuprotekta sa ating bansa. Kung wala nito, magiging magulo ang ating bansa, walang mga batas na matutupad at maraming suliranin ang magaganap sa ating bansa...” ("The Philippine Navy is important because it protects our country from foreign invaders and against lawless elements who ruin our natural resources. Without the Philippine Navy, there will be no order in the country, laws will not be implemented, and more problems will arise...")

Above passage was an excerpt taken from the winning piece of Mary Joy Demetillo, a grade 6 student of Victory Village Elementary School, Legazpi City in an Essay Writing Contest sponsored by Barko ng Republika ng Pilipinas Iloilo or PS32 of the Naval Forces Southern Luzon, Philippine Navy in connection with its weeklong community service at the city.

Consistent with the Philippine Navy’s commitment of a vital partner in lasting peace and sustainable development, Team BRP Iloilo lead by its commanding officer, CAPT NARCISO A VINGSON PN(GSC), collaborated with local government units of Brgy 27 and 28 of Victory Village and school officials on September 14 to 19, 2009 in bringing social services and further strengthening rapport between the Philippine Navy and the Legazpenos. The weeklong community service included the following:

• “Open Ship” or Tour for 365 pupils aboardship;
• Educated 100 pupils on National Geography and Philippine Navy highlighting it’s role for lasting peace and sustainable development of the country;
• Held Essay Writing Contest to reinforce lectures and develop writing skills.
• Donated fabricated trash cans to Victory Village Elementary School, and Brgy 27 and 28, of Legazpi City;
• Facilitated feeding program to 100 children and emphasized the importance of good nutrition;
• Facilitated goodwill basketball game with Team Navy and Brgy basketball team;
• Participated in the celebration of the 24th International Coastal Clean-up Day.

BRP Iloilo (PS-32) is one of several Miguel Malvar class Patrol Corvettes in service with the Philippine Navy. She is formerly an ex-USN Patrol Craft Escort based on the Admirable class minesweeper hull that were produced during World War II, and is now classified as a corvette protecting the vast waters of the Philippines. BRP Iloilo is presently deployed at Bicol to complement efforts in affirming lasting peace and sustaining prosperity in the region.

Statement of the Naval Public Affairs Office re Sinking of MV Catalyn B and MV Baleno 9 as of 271430H Dec 09
LIEUTENANT COLONEL EDGARD A AREVALO PN(M)
Director, Naval Public Affairs Office

Sunday,27 December 2009

http://navyspeak.blogspot.com/2009/12/statement-of-naval-public-affairs_26.html

After four days of aerial search by our Navy Islanders and two days of sea surface search for missing passengers by four of our ships, we are yet to see survivors from Catalyn B. Accounts from survivors that the ship capsized in less than two minutes reinforces our apprehensions that those twenty one (21) missing could have gone down with the ship.

We are hoping otherwise in case of the reported 22 still missing among the 88 reported personnel of MB Baleno 9 (per Coast Guard PIO: 70 passengers; 18 crew; 62 survivors; 4 casualty; 22 missing). After navy aerial search at 7:55 AM onwards today and accounts of survivors that more could have perished, the Navy search and rescue teams aboard PS 32 to be joined by PG 394 race against time to save any of or all the missing passengers. We are soliciting prayers that may the rescuers find the survivors at the nick of time.

PN Logistics Run Mission and Southern Cruise of PMA Class 2011

By: LTCOL OMAR L TONSAY PN(M)(GSC)
Director, Naval Public Affairs Office

http://www.navy.mil.ph/news.php?news_id=313

The Philippine Navy (PN) conducts a logistic run (LOG Run) mission on 02 to 17 April, jibes with Southern cruise of PMA Class of 2014. Around 350 personnel composed of PMA 3rd Class Cadets together with their training staff joins the said mission.

RADM JOSE LUIS M ALANO, Commander Philippine Fleet and Commo JAMIE S BERNARDINO, Commander Fleet-Marine Ready Force leads the Send- Off Ceremony of Philippine Navy Logistics Run Mission and Southern Cruise of PMA Class 2014 at Naval Base Heracleo Alano, Sangley Point, Cavite City.

The LOG Run mission is an initiative of the PN that would cater to the requests of concerned AFP units on the availability of sealift transport, as it gives them the opportunity to convey necessary logistics from Manila to their respective units. One transport vessel BRP Dagupan City (LC551) and one escort vessel BRP Iloilo (PS32) will be dedicated as plat forms for the said mission.

On the other hand, the Southern Cruise is part of the curriculum enhancement of PMA that allows the exposure of the Cadets on other AFP units and establishments with clear views and better appreciation of the AFP’s organization.

A Task Group (TG “PAGLALAYAG”) is organize to provide command and control to supervise contingent’s activities during the brief stopover in selected port of calls.

One of our old members here -- FrustratedAFP finally found a stash of his old PN photos.  Circa 1997-98... as what he said :)

He asked me to post these here for Timawan's to enjoy.  If you ever re-post them, please give where the true credit is due.
