I would also like to know if the local cement producers marine grade cement with lower pH levels. I can try to get in touch with the production engineers at bacnotan (Holcim cement).

Coming from rappler, i woudnt be surprised.

Seriously, they didnt took into count the number of wounded soldiers that received prosthetic legs/arms?

Most servicemen opt to purchase their own wristwatches of different brands, mostly timex and casio models. Though some rare occasions special units give stipends for them to buy preferred brands. In some cases the LRR then where given/issued wristwatches as part of the organizing the unit in the early stages of their formation. The SWAG might have diver type watches issued or bought with the unit’s stipends.

My CADT experience is with AFPOS schooling in the Infantry Non-Com Officers Basic Course at the 4ATG, TRADOC.

Applying requires applicants to undergo Command Clearance - G2 (GHQ) and J9 clearance (HPA) and issued orders as a regular sildier with full pay and benefits for a period of time.

The Infantry Course covers the ACAD and NON ACAD courses
1. ACAD - academic phase ( infantry, fire support, BOS, finance, armor op, calling CAS etc)
2. ACAD - AFPOS phase ( TLP, TEWT, FTX, MOUT )
3. NON-ACAD - physical training and conditioning ( prep for 1 week FTX included )

After graduation, you earn the infantry badge and included in you name rank and AFPSN the AFPOS (eg: 1LT JUAN DELA CRUZ O-123456 INF PA/ 2LT JOHN M DOE O-123456 INF PA (RES)

As previous announcements by the CinC to give notice and honor bisaya heroes. Steong contenders would be those from visayas or mindanao. Datu Bago being one, would a Boholanon hero be one? BRP DAGOHOY.

The next few days or weeks would be more interesting. Aside from the already installed. Mod 2 rcws guns. The rear mast might house one of the 2 giraffe radars. Any word on the arrival of tech guys to install it. Wonder what the CIC would look like?

Now that the CIC is more alive, the controls of the main and secondary guns may be transfered from the bridge to the CIC?

Some people still dont get it. Turning a blind eye wont change the fact that good leaders bear good examples. Better taxes means a better AFP.

Reservist Affairs / Re: Reserve rank after a haitus
« on: July 31, 2017, 11:59:01 AM »
You would retain the last rank you held when last active. The reserve is not as rigid and stringent with AWOLS since its a voluntary service.

Much better to report back to your unit ( particularly the CDC ) of your locality and bring all
Your documentation specially the enlistment order and promotion orders for faster results. The most they would do is just ask why you were inactive the past few years or months.

Separate procurement?

Reservist Affairs / Re: Reservists Called to Active Duty

Its good they are tapping the reservists on some operations that involve CMO activities. These reservists are well adapted to manegerial positions and have very good experiences ( making the relief process efficient ). Also these reservists gave the army a bridge on the whats on the civilian side of things, especially when dealing on the crisis ( reservists being half civilians and half soldiers ). No wonder the CMO unit assigned to the marawi crisis is somehow successful in their operations, especially when dealing with the muslim majority of refugees and the iligan, linamon, cdo, adjacent town LGUs and other government agencies within the area for cooperation.

Makes me think as to what chamber does the NDM-86 (TY 85) have. Is it tr 7.62 x 54 ot the 7.62 NATO as that rifle has 2 version, one with the rounded mag for the 7.62x54 round and a box magazine (m14 style) for the 7.62 NATO round.

Im guessing those are .50 M2 BMGs rather than 20mm manual guns?
