Camp 1Lt Vicente G Alagar – Police Regional Office 10 conducted a Monday Flag Raising Ceremony in observance of the National Heroes Day at the New Grandstand, Camp 1Lt Vicente G Alagar, Lapasan, Cagayan de Oro City on August 29, 2022.
PBGEN LAWRENCE B COOP relayed the message of the PNP Chief, PGEN RODOLFO S AZURIN, JR and said that, “we do not only commemorate the glorious past but we also pay respect, with the highest esteem, to our many modern-day heroes.”
This commemoration honors not only the known Filipino Heroes but also the unsung Filipino people who laid their lives and fought for the independence of the country.
“Today, we reaffirm our commitment to the peace and security that our heroes fought and died for. With this commitment, we remain on the battlefield against crime, illegal drugs, corruption, and terrorism even as we continue our tireless pursuit of cleansing our backyard of members unfit to be called the nation’s protectors and public servants.” RD COOP also said.
Further, a wreath laying ceremony was held in recognition to the Filipino Heroes who struggled for the nation’s freedom, including those who lost their lives in pursuit of freedom.
The men and women of PRO10 will continue to perform their duties and responsibilities as law enforcers to attain a more progressive and peaceful Northern Mindanao.
