CAMP PERALTA, Jamindan, Capiz, June 14 -- The Army's 3rd Infantry (Spearhead) Division led by MGen Dinoh A Dolina rendered a Testimonial Review and Retirement Ceremony in honor of Police Regional Office 6 director Brigadier General John C Bulalacao, who is set to retire on June 27, 2019.
The ceremony was held at 3ID Parade Ground in Jamindan, Capiz on June 7, 2019.
Testimonial parade and reviews is a time-honored military custom and tradition.
A review is an inspection of troops by a higher officer or honored guest as a way of showing the troops strength, state of discipline and preparedness.
Bulalacao was given honor as the 3ID's appreciation of his untiring support to the Army Division during his stint as regional director of PRO 6, specifically in peace and security efforts in Western Visayas.
Bulalacao is known for his compelling war against illegal drugs and other forms of criminality which delivered significant results in the anti-illegal drugs campaign in the whole region.
He is also recognized for strengthening the monitoring of police officials and personnel, thus maintaining the excellent law enforcement and public service of PRO 6.
Bulalacao, who is a member of the Philippine Military Academy-Maringal Class of 1988, is the former spokesman of the PNP.
He also served as chief of the regional directorial staff of the National Capital Region Police Office.
"I only have a few days left in the service and I can say that I am finishing strong," Bulalacao said in his message.
He added "You, too, can do it if you keep these reminders: Protect your service reputation; maintain discipline; be dedicated to your duties; and believe in the power of prayers."
For his part, Dolina expressed his gratitude for the remarkable partnership made by Bulalacao with the 3ID.
He also thanked him for maintaining the strong collaboration of the PNP and Army in serving and safeguarding the people of Western Visayas. (JBG/Cpt. Cenon Pancito III/3ID-DPAO)
