NUEVA ECIJA, Philippines – The Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff, General Emmanuel Bautista, extoled the Special Operations Command for its exemplary work in keeping the country safe during the unit’s 23rd anniversary celebration at Fort Magsaysay in Nueva Ecija Thursday.

Still, Bautista urged OCOM to stay ahead of the threats and foil plots that could hamper the country’s security and stability.

“Our nation is more secured and the AFP is more respected,” Bautista said in his speech during the celebration.

“You have ensured that the Philippines will no longer be a safe haven for terrorists,” he said as he lauded the unit after its operations thwarted rogue members of the Moro National Liberation Front who attacked Zamboanga in September last year.
