Philippine Army soldiers led by the Assistant Chief, Army Human Rights Office, Col Alfredo P Patarata, take their oath of reaffirmation to commit and support the International Humanitarian Law, during the Monday flag raising ceremony which highlighted the 67th International Humanitarian (IHL) Month August 8. This year’s theme centers on “IHL: Mga Aral ng Nakaraan, Hamon sa Kasalukuyan.” In the speech of Army Chief Lt Gen Eduardo M Año read by Army Chief of Staff Brig Gen Robert M Arevalo, he emphasized that if there is one lesson that could be gained in the yearly commemoration of IHL, it is “the message of hope, IHL gives us all a glimmer of hope that decency will prevail in the midst of chaos.”
