kapitan prokotoy...sa utus ni kadete kolonel bolantoy...nilagdaan ni kadete magat kurantoy...tagabadya ng mga kuutusan at kapulungan.." kalimutan ko na ang iba....
I noticed that you used "kolonel".
AFAIK, "Kalakan" is the appropriate substitute for the rank of Colonel in the Adjutant's call . . . by the same token that "magat" is the substitute for Captain.
This is not to say that I haven't heard other units use "Kolonel" as well. Its as common a . . . practice . . . as pronouncing "cadence" as "kah-dins". Most ROTC training staff (not the cadets) simply don't know about this -- or quite simply don't care to get it right.

The history of those terms "Kalakan", and "Magat" are unclear however. Here are other rank equivalents:
Colonel -> Kalakan
Lieutenant colonel -> Lakan
Major -> Himagat
Captain -> Magat
First Lieutenant -> Pulimagat
Second Lieutenant -> Kamagat
