OPC Students Visit ‘The Home of CMO Professionals’

FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila – Students of Officer Preparatory Course Class 66-2016 visited Headquarters Civil-Military Operations Group, Philippine Army as part of their educational tour, 19 January.
CMOG as one of the Philippine Army Major Units is always a part of the educational tour for students from the different Army training institutions, especially for pre-entry courses like OPC. This will orient them with CMO doctrines and the various programs, activities and projects of CMOG which they could adopt and apply when deployed in the frontline after graduation on January 27, 2017.
The 48 OPC students will immediately be called to active duty as Second Lieutenants as they are expected to be assigned with different Army units in the field performing not just in combat but also in CMO duties.
In his message, Col. Thomas R. Sedano Jr, CMOG Commander, emphasized that ‘the best CMO tool is a well-disciplined soldier and reminded them that they are the ‘show window’ of the Philippine Army so they need to perform their mandated mission in accordance with the highest standard of professionalism.
During their tour in CMOG, an information briefing was presented showcasing CMOG’s functions/capabilities, significant accomplishments and the way ahead, especially its anticipated upgrade into Civil-Military Operations Regiment and production of Mobile CMO Support Unit (MCSU) that is capable of producing and conducting Information Support Affairs, Civil Affairs and Public Affairs products and activities.
The students were also treated with a ‘boodlefight’ together with the OCS and CMOG staff officers after their tour around CMOG offices and facilities.
