BRP Magat Salamat marks 37th anniversary in PHL Navy

The BRP Magat Salamat (PS-20), a patrol ship assigned to the Eastern Mindanao Command, celebrated its 37th year in service in the Philippine Navy on Sunday.

The officers and crew of the patrol ship marked the occasion by giving "birthday gifts" to the residents of Barangay Lower Makar, Labangal, General Santos City.

Personnel of the BRP Magat Salamat also donated trash cans to help maintain the cleanliness along the coastal areas of the city.

The ship crew also served hot meals to more than 150 children, facilitated parlor games to entertain them and distributed school supplies to inspire them to study harder.

"This is one way of giving back the blessings that God bestowed to PS-20. Seeing the smiles of the children is a great birthday gift for our ship,” BRP Magat Salamat commanding officer Cmdr. Emmanuel Eugenio C. Bello said.

The BRP Magat Salamat was commissioned by the PN on Feb. 7, 1977 after the fall of South Vietnam.

Its first commanding officer was Cmdr. Jesus E. Biola.

Throughout her service in the PN, she has received numerous awards and was adjudged as Ship of the Year many times.

The Philippine Navy is spending P158.2M to dry-dock two WWII-era Patrol Ship: BRP Magat Salamat (PS-20), which was laid down in 1943 and BRP Sultan Kudarat (PS-22), which was laid down in 1942.

Talking about . . . ROI.
