MANILA, Philippines– Brigadier General Glorioso Miranda is the new commander of the Army’s 7th Infantry Division, a document obtained by INQUIRER.net revealed.

He will replace the post vacated by Lieutenant General Hernando Iriberri, who was named as the Army chief last February. Both are members of the Philippine Military Academy “Matikas” Class of 1983.


Miranda was previously the commander of the General Headquarters and Headquarters Support Command at Camp Aguinaldo. He was also previously assigned to the 1002nd Infantry Brigade AFP Command and General Staff College.

Last December, the military police under his leadership renewed its crackdown against stray animals inside the camp prior the visit of President Benigno Aquino III for the Armed Forces of the Philippines anniversary. He said there were reports that the stray animals were only being run over by vehicles. He also assured the public that the pets are under their care.


Housed at Fort Magsaysay in the province of Nueva Ecija, the biggest military camp in the Philippines, the 7th Infantry Division operates in the regions of Ilocos and Central Luzon.

Miranda will be replaced by Colonel Arthur Ang as commander of GHQ and HSC.

The orders signed by President Benigno Aquino III effective March 28.

Some of the designations included in the order were of Major General Benito Antonio de Leon as the 5th Infantry Division commander, Brigadier General Ivan Samarita as commander of Training and Doctrine Command, Brigadier General Victor Bayani as deputy chief of staff for Logistics, Colonel Angelito de Leon as chief of the AFP Command Center.
