MANILA, Philippines—Sen. Vicente “Tito” Sotto III has been promoted to lieutenant colonel in the Philippine Army reserve force, the military announced Friday.

Members of the senator’s family were with him during the ceremony, attended by top AFP officials at the military general headquarters in Camp Aguinaldo.
