EMPOWERING BARANGAY DEFENSE SYSTEM: 53IB Prepares, Equips Tanods, CVO

The Philippine Army’s 53rd Infantry “Matapat” Battalion (53IB) and 1st CMO “Mahigalaon” Battalion (1CMOBn) empowered the Civilian Volunteer Organization (CVO) and the Barangay Defense System (BDS) of Barangay Salvador, Dumingag, Zamboanga del Sur on July 4, 2021.

The Matapat and Mahigalaon Troopers reminded the CVOs and BDS headed by Salvador Barangay Chairman Luisito Cruz to tighten their checkpoints and monitor the possible movement of NPA terrorists in the barangay.

This is part of 53IB’s drive to pursue transformation to become a world-class Army that is a source of national pride by 2028 in line with the Army Transformation Roadmap (ATR).
