by Larry T. Lopez / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – One hundred sixty seven trainees of the Civilian Auxiliary Force Geographical Unit (Cafgu) were installed today as regular members of the civilian auxiliary force after successfully completing the 45-day paramilitary course.

Col. Francisco Milliari, commander of the Philippine Army, 77th Infantry Battalion, welcomed the new batch of the Cafgu force and told them to uphold and protect the good morale of the military in Kalinga and in their future areas of deployment.

The latest batch will be under the control of the 77th Infantry Battalion. They shall be deployed in the various areas of operation of the army in the province.

Milliari said as military auxiliary service, Cafgus are trained not only on combat operations but are also given courses on other tasks on environmental protection, preservation and enforcement of environmental laws.

The 167 Cafgus went through community environment project training at the military reservation lot in Barangay Santor, Rizal where they were exposed to greening activities.

Their training included the propagation of trees and orientation on small livelihood projects as possible source of additional support for their families.

The Cafgu is administered by and under the control of regular units of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. These are tasked to prevent the re-infiltration of insurgents into communities that have already been cleared of their influence by combat operations conducted by regular units of the AFP.
