10th ID marks 3rd anniversary
« Reply #31 on: August 18, 2009, 12:02:15 AM »

THE 10th Infantry Division (Agila) commemorated its third founding anniversary at Camp Panacan on Monday.

The commemoration dubbed "Team Agila: Working with all the stakeholders for peace" emphasized the command's pursuance of peace, security, and development within their area of responsibility.

"We thank the people of Region 11 (Southern Mindanao) and the Socsksargen Region for providing a second home to our soldiers," Division Commander Major General Reynaldo B. Mapagu said in thanking all those who have supported them for the past three years.

"The people's support and trust serve as our principal anchor and inspiration as we continue to serve this country with the highest level of dignity and loyalty," Mapagu said.

Mapagu thanked his soldiers to renew their commitment to defend the people and protect the communities from all threats.

"I ask my fellow soldiers to serve the same sense of urgency in their missions, to continue respecting and defending the rights of the people, and upholding the rule of law, and to continue dreaming of peace," Mapagu said.

A Eucharistic mass was celebrated by the officers and men in thanksgiving. A blessing for the newly repaired and constructed buildings and newly acquired building followed.

An awarding ceremony was also held. Soldiers who exemplified leadership were recognized and plaques of recognition were given to maneuver units, combat service support units, and non-government and private organizations who contributed to the 10th ID.

The 10th ID will also commemorate the outcome of the activities, such as sports tournaments and blood donation drive they had with other law-enforcement agencies, tri-media, businessmen, and civilian friends.

A photo and static exhibit will be launched on August 18-20 at the SM Mall and Matina Town Square to form part of 24th Kadayawan Festival. (JCZ)

Army's new 10th ID commander named
By Edith Regalado (The Philippine Star) Updated November 18, 2009 12:00 AM 

DAVAO CITY , Philippines  – Maj. Gen. Carlos Holganza has taken over as commander of the Army’s 10th Infantry Division in simple ceremonies late Monday afternoon at Camp Panacan, this city.

Holganza, who was formerly the Armed Forces of the Philippines Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations (J3), replaced Maj. Gen. Reynaldo Mapagu, who has also just assumed as commander of the National Capital Region Command (NCRCOM) post.

Both Holganza and Mapagu are members of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1978 in which President Arroyo is an adopted member.

Philippine Army chief Lt. Gen. Delfin Bangit, who also belongs to the same PMA class, presided in the turnover rites for the two officers.

The 10th ID, being the youngest division of the Philippine Army, covers the Southern Mindanao area which is considered to be the among the strongest lairs of the New People’s Army in the country.

Holganza will be in-charge of the 6,000-strong troops under the 10th ID in pursuing the communist insurgents in this part of Mindanao.

Holganza said Mapagu has achieved considerable accomplishments as 10th ID commander.

“I am duty bound to equal it if not to surpass the achievements the division has attained during his term. Rest assured that our focus on peace and development particularly in the countryside will take a more vigorous step as our soldiers continue guarding communities and serving our people,” said Holganza.

Mapagu, on the other hand, expressed confidence Holganza shall be able to bring the 10th ID to greater heights in pursuing its mandated tasks.

Holganza leaves post as 10th ID commander
Written by: Dalumpines , Jose G.
Tuesday, 03 August 2010

http://www.mindanaotimes.net/?p=11203

MAJ.  GEN. Carlos Holganza formally leaves Davao Region and Socsksargen today as he turns over the post as commander of the Army’s largest division in the south to Maj.. Gen. Jorge Segovia in a change of command ceremony 10 a.m. at Camp Apolinario in Panacan.

Capt. Emmanuel Garcia, spokesperson of the 10th Infantry Division said Maj.Gen. Holganza will relinquish command of the 6,000 strong 10th Infantry Division (10ID) after an eight-month stint as its commander.

He said the outgoing general assumed command of the National Development Support Command (Nadescom) replacing Lt. Gen. Nestor Ochoa, head of Nadescom and Vice Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), before his early retirement weeks ago.

Garcia said Holganza’s appointment as head of the development arm of the AFP is seen as a major boost in the AFP’s peace efforts nationwide with his out of the box and soft approach to insurgency by focusing service on the people rather than concentrating on combat operations.

He said Segovia earlier left his post as commander of the 2nd Infantry Division covering Tagalog Region to assume leadership as the fifth commander of the youngest army division in the country and is expected to carry on the peace and development projects being undertaken by soldiers in the region.

Holganza expressed his gratitude to all stakeholders who helped the 10th Infantry Division accomplish its mission during his term.

“The partnership of the LGUs, NGOs and all sectors particularly the local residents, barangay officials and the media together with our soldiers has been the key factor in making our peace and development efforts work,” he said
Holganza also lauded soldiers for doing a job well done.

“I take pride of our soldiers for taking the moral high ground in every operation we have conducted and always taking into account the wellbeing of the people.” Holganza said.

701st Infantry Brigade arrives Davao Region
October 03, 2010, 08:10:00 PM by 10cmobn10id in .

The 10th Infantry (Agila) Division, Philippine Army received on Saturday afternoon, October 2, 2010, the arrival of additional troops from Central Luzon. The augmentation unit is expected to boost the operational capability of the Army Division addressing the insurgents in Southern Mindanao Region.

The 701st Infantry Brigade came all the way from Burgos, Tarlac to its new workplace in Davao Region. Known for its success in counterinsurgency operations, the Brigade under Colonel Leonido Bongcawil will provide command and control on existing army battalions deployed in one of the provinces in Davao Region.

Davao Region is considered to be the national priority area by the Army leadership. Statistics will say that while the strength of the insurgents in Davao Region for the past years is on a decline, success of the counterinsurgency operations in other regions like Central Luzon, Southern Tagalog and Central Visayas is more tangible and visible with the decreasing atrocities attributed to the New Peoples Army.

Major General Jorge B Segovia, Commander of the 10th Infantry Division, Philippine Army, stated that the arrival of the 701st Infantry Brigade Headquarters will mean an additional impetus for the improvement of the strategy being employed by the Agila Division against the insurgents in its area of responsibility. He also emphasized that the hallmark of the Division's counterinsurgency operations is the implementation of the peace and development outreach program (PDOP) which in the past two months has already gained ground with the surrender of at least five NPA members. The support and cooperation of the people also enabled the government forces to flush out armed elements of the CPP/NPA and thwart their hostile plans.

The arrival of the 701st Infantry Brigade does not necessarily mean additional troops to run after the insurgents. It will translate to more effective and efficient management of troops deployed for the implementation of peace and development outreach programs. Major General Segovia said during the simple welcome ceremony held inside Naval Station Felix Apolinario.

Before their deployment, personnel of the 701st Infantry Brigade were briefed by 10ID General Staff about the security situation in the area. They will undergo orientation seminars on the customs and traditions of the people in Davao Region.

Colonel Bongcawil expressed his enthusiasm in working under the 10th Infantry Division and in partnership with the local government units and other stakeholders in the area. He said, It is a great privilege for us to be deployed in Davao and serve its people. We will do our best to share our best practices and success stories and contribute in solving the insurgency problem that has been plaguing Davao Region for more than 40 years now, he added.

Military sends more troops to Davao region
By Edith Regalado (The Philippine Star) Updated October 09, 2010 12:00 AM

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – The military has deployed more troops to southern Mindanao to effectively address the insurgency problem in the region, tagged as a rebel stronghold in this part of the country.

Gen. Jorge Segovia, commander of the Army’s 10th Infantry (Agila) Division, said men of the 701st Infantry Brigade arrived in Davao this week and are now at the 10th ID headquarters at Camp Panacan.

Segovia said the new troops, who came from Burgos, Tarlac, will comprise an augmentation unit for counterinsurgency in southern Mindanao.

The newly arrived Army brigade, under Col. Leonido Bongcawil, brings to four the number of brigades now under the 10th ID.

Segovia said the Davao region is considered as a national priority area by the Army leadership.

Statistics showed that while the strength of the insurgents in the region for the past years has been on a decline, the success of counterinsurgency operations in other regions like Central Luzon, Southern Tagalog and Central Visayas has been more tangible and visible with decreasing atrocities attributed to communist insurgents.

Segovia said the additional troops will mean further impetus to improving the counterinsurgency strategy of the Agila Division.

He said though that the Army division’s counterinsurgency operations are focused on peace and development outreach programs, and in the past two months, have gained ground with the surrender of at least five New People’s Army members.

“The arrival of the 701st Infantry Brigade does not necessarily mean additional troops to run after the insurgents. It will translate to more effective and efficient management of troops deployed for the implementation of peace and development outreach programs,” Segovia said during a simple welcome ceremony at Naval Station Felix Apolinario.

For his part, Bongcawil said, “We will do our best to share our best practices and success stories and contribute to solving the insurgency problem that has been plaguing the Davao region for more than 40 years now.”

Peace officer gets first star
by LTC Medel M. Aguilar, PA

http://www.pia.gov.ph/?m=12&sec=reader&rp=1&fi=p101118.htm&no=3&date=

Davao City (18 November) -- The Brigade Commander of the 1002nd Infantry Brigade received his first star over the weekend in the "Donning of Rank" ceremony held at the Headquarters of the 10th Infantry Division, Philippine Army presided by the Division Commander, Major General Jorge Segovia.

The promotion of Colonel Ricardo Rainier Cruz III to Brigadier General, one-star rank, was approved by His Excellency President Benigno Simeon Aquino effective November 6, 2010. Prior to his present assignment, he served as Intelligence Officer of the Philippine Army and Task Force Davao Commander. Like his Division Commander, Brigadier General Cruz belongs to illustrious PMA class of 1980.

Major General Segovia cited the improved peace and order condition in the provinces of Davao del Sur, South Cotabato and Sarangani as the biggest accomplishment of Brigadier General Cruz as Brigade Commander.

"The insurgency problem in these provinces is almost over and that is because of the leadership of Brigadier General Cruz to the soldiers he is commanding and his strong commitment to serve the people of said provinces," General Segovia said.

Brigadier General Cruz is also the "architect" of the peace and development outreach program (PDOP) that the whole 10th Infantry Division is now employing to address insurgency. He also conceptualized the training program for the AFP and PNP personnel who will be deployed as members of the peace and development teams.

PDOP aims to win the hearts and minds of the people with the deployment of disciplined soldiers who will also initiate or assist in the implementation of humanitarian assistance programs. More than 200 Peace and Development Teams have been deployed in Davao Region since September this year.

"I owe this promotion to the people of Davao del Sur, Sarangani Province and South Cotabato," Brigadier General Cruz said of his promotion.

He said that the military would not be successful in their mission without the support of the local government units and the cooperation of the people. "With the promotion comes a bigger responsibility, hence our commitment to do more for the betterment of our people," Brig. Gen. Cruz added. (10th ID

THE Philippine Army's 10th Infantry Division is planning to purchase several pieces of emergency equipment in 2012 for immediate response to calamities following Tropical Storm Sendong that hit Cagayan de Oro and Iligan cities on December 17.

Brigade General Ricardo Rainer Cruz III, assistant division commander of the 10th Infantry Division, said their first plan for 2012 is to purchase rubber boats, first aid resources, hand-cracked torch with LED lights, jumper cables, and other disaster equipment that will be used in rescue operations.

For “Sendong” survivors alone, the 10th Infantry Division gathered around 75 tons of foodstuff, drinking water, medicines, clothing, and footwear from those who responded to their Bayanihan Call. The relief assistance was delivered last December 23.

Another Pagtinabangay Caravan with eleven M35 trucks and two Forward cargo vans were sent to Iligan City on December 26. They also delivered relief supplies for their soldiers who were affected in flash floods.
