MANILA – Matteo Guidicelli has finally finished his 30-day Scout Ranger Orientation and Leadership Development Course with PMA Class of 2021 at Camp Tecson in San Miguel, Bulacan.

Present during the closing ceremonies on Thursday was the actor’s longtime girlfriend Sarah Geronimo, who arrived at the event with Guidicelli’s parents and siblings.

Aside from finishing the course, Guidicelli received a military commendation medal for his volunteerism initiative in clean up drives in some of the schools in San Miguel, for leading the distribution of school supplies and for being an inspiration to the youth.

From actor to officer: Diether Ocampo in the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary
August 8, 2019 - 3:22 PM

Former matinee idol Diether Ocampo joins the rank of famous personalities who have entered the volunteer organization of the Philippine Coast Guard.

The 46-year-old actor earned his rank as a lieutenant commander of the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary after undergoing indoctrination ceremonies, orientations, conventions, trainings, seminars and outreach activities since he joined last February.

Ocampo’s latest accomplishment is completing the seafarer’s training conducted by the Philippine Center for Advanced Maritime Simulation and Training.

Dingdong Dantes says he's a Marine reserve
Published April 7, 2008 11:59am

Samantala, napanood si Dingdong sa 24 Oras a week ago na kasama ang Philippine Marines sa isang medical mission sa Jolo, Sulu. Ayon sa young actor, isa raw yun sa socio-civic activities na sinamahan niya at ka-tie-up ang Kapuso Foundation at kasama sa mga ginagawa niya bilang reserved force ng Philippine Marines. "Lahat tayo may advocacy at yun ang advocacy ko. Two years na akong reserved force ng Philippine Marines, part ako ng technical service battalion composed of doctors and lawyers among others. Civilian support kami, but militarized. Nag-training ako for that, kahit community service ang aming ginagawa, we have to be trained. Medical mission yun, nagdala kami ng doctors, dentist at medicines," kuwento ni Dingdong. "Handa ako roon," ang sagot ni Dingdong sa tanong kung sasabak siya sa giyera kung kinakailangan. But for now, mostly medical mission ang kanyang ginagawa. Hot spot ang Jolo, Sulu na kanilang pinuntahan. Hindi ba siya natakot? "No, part of my commitment is to serve regardless of what will happen. Alam kong sa Jolo kami pupunta at hindi ako nag-second thought. Nakita ko ang reaction ng tao nang dumating ang medical mission at masayang-masaya sila. Kasama namin si Von Vibar at ‘Sergio' naman ang tawag sa akin ng mga tao roon." Master Sergeant ang ranggo ni Dingdong sa Philippine Marines at kundi siya napasok sa showbiz, baka nasa Armed Forces na talaga siya. Ang maging sundalo ang isa sa mga gusto niyang pasukin, kahit noong bata pa siya. Bukod sa pangarap niyang maging sundalo, ano at sino pa ang nag-encourage sa kanyang maging man in uniform? "I grew up in a family of military. Brigadier General sa Philippine Constabulary ang grandfather kong si Sixto Dantes Sr. Nang mabigyan ng opportunity, sinubukan kong maging reserved officer at kaya ko pala," lahad niya.

Unknown to many, Dingdong is actually in the Philippine Marine Reserve corps. He enlisted in 2006 and trained for over a month. Ten days were spent in the Philippine Marine Corps Basic School in Cavite, where Dingdong's Men's Health cover shoot was held.

Ten days of intense activity was no joke. You wake up at 4:00 a.m.., and are subjected to mental and physical challenges until the early evening. The Kapuso actor didn't mind the difficulties and, in fact, recalled the experience fondly. "We experienced what [the marines] really do. Sa umaga, sa hapon, with the chant and everything, training, lahat yan," he said with a smile.

According to Rocco, he believes "magagamit ko ang skills ko as a nurse for medical missions, physical skills in times of calamity, and my influence to inspire and motivate the youth."

He expressed his joy that the Kapuso Network has been supportive of this new endeavor.

Not to worry though as Rocco's acting career will remain active. Apart from playing Diego Ramos in the Philippine adaptation of hit Korean drama Descendants of the Sun, Rocco also has a movie lined up, "Write About Love," where he plays a seasoned writer. — LA, GMA News

Cesar Montano, Rocco Nacino enlist as Naval Reserve Command reservists
Published August 22, 2019, 11:31 AM

In South Korea, military enlistment is required for male citizens in accordance with its constitutional mandate of national defense.

But while not compulsory in the Philippines, a number of celebrities have taken the initiative to do the same.

Gerald Anderson, Erwan Heussaff Nico Bolzico, and Diether Ocampo are members of Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary (PCGA).

Matteo Guidicelli, on the other hand, was recently promoted as second lieutenant of the Philippine Army.


Following in their footsteps is Cesar Montano.

The actor and former Tourism Promotion Board (TPB) chief operating officer enlisted himself as reservist of the Naval Reserve Command of Philippine Navy
