MANILA, Philippines – Marksmen representing the armies of the 10 ASEAN countries started arriving in the Philippines for the ASEAN Armies Rifle Meet 2016 (AARM 2016) to be held from November 18 to December 7 at Camp O'Donnel in Capas, Tarlac.

The contest will happen alongside the meeting of ASEAN army chiefs, who will themselves engage in a friendly shooting competition.

"The objective of the AARM is to develop and strengthen the relationship among the member armies from its senior military leaders down to their foot soldiers," said Army spokesman Colonel Benjie Hao during the media launch of the marksmanship contest on Tuesday, November 15.

The 10 ASEAN countries are Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The Royal Thai Army will be defending its championship title last year. If successful, it will match the 9 titles of the Indonesian Army which currently holds the most number of championship titles since the marksmanship contest started in 1991.

The Philippine Army won once, in 2005, when the contest was held in Brunei. The team was led by Colonel Leodovic Guinid and Colonel Noel Detoyato. Now Staff Sergeant Jennifer De Belen also won the Pistol Ladies category. She is participating again this year.
