In his message during the 121st anniversary of the Philippine Navy, President Rodrigo Duterte encouraged the soldiers to wear their uniform with integrity and pride.
“As we highlight your gains and milestones in the Rough Deck Log, I hope that you will be more inspired to wear your uniform with integrity and pride. May this auspicious occasion also strengthen your commitment to wholeheartedly serve the country amidst any challenge you may face,” said Duterte on Monday.
The Chief Executive said the country’s naval forces has proven itself as “valiant protectors of our seas.”
Their courage and dedication to duty, he added, “assure us that we can withstand any danger that will threaten our sovereignty as a maritime nation.”
Duterte also promised government assistance to enhance the capability of our navy in defending the country’s waters.
“I assure you that this administration will remain as your partner in building a more modern, dependable, and stronger navy,” he said. “Together, let us continue to sail towards a more progressive, prosperous and inclusive future for our countrymen.”
