Antique cops back mandatory ROTC bill

first_imgPresident Rodrigo Duterte during hisState of the Nation Address last July 22 said that there is a need for theimmediate revival of the ROTC despite the objection of some sectors. Escobar also hopes there would be nohazing during the mandatory ROTC but should just mold the trainees to becomebetter individuals. “I just do hope that there would be no hazing in the ROTC,”he said. Meantime, seven major service academieswill showcase their military discipline in the first Presidential Silent DrillCompetition organized by the Office of the President, Presidential SecurityGroup in coordination with the Department of National Defense and the ArmedForces of the Philippines through the Office of the Reservist and RetireeAffairs. ROTC, which was previously implementedat the college level, was scrapped in 2002 because of an investigation on themurder of a University of Santo Tomas student after he exposed allegedcorruption in the program. Lieutenant Colonel Norby Escobar, APPOdirector for deputy operations, said he favors making the ROTC mandatorybecause it could “help mold proper discipline among students.” He added that the passage of House Bill(HB) No. 2613, or the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) Act should have tobe prioritized. He said that instead of hazing, ROTCofficers could let their trainees do purely physical exercises as one way ofdisciplining the cadets. SAN JOSE, Antique – The Antique Provincial Police Office (APPO) has expressedits support to the proposed bill that will make the Reserved Officers TrainingCorps (ROTC) mandatory for Grades 11 and 12 students. The competition highlights this year’sROTC Summit that will be staged at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila.
