static display on pistay dayat celebration



LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – Pistay Dayat revelers enjoyed the static display of the 3rd Mechanized Infantry Division of the Philippine Army at the Capitol Beachfront on April 28.

Pegged to showcase the capabilities of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and to give Pangasinenses a glimpse of the equipment used by our peacemakers, the static display started around 9:30 a.m.

Pangasinenses, young and old alike, experienced some of the unit assets used by the soldiers including firearms and the ‘simba fighting vehicle’ which is commonly used in anti-insurgency campaigns against communist rebels and terrorists in the country.

Lt. Joderick Mangagom bared that the static display also intends to encourage the youth to enter military and serve the country.

“This also serves as a recruitment activity para sa mga kabataan na gustong pumasok sa army,” Lt. Mangagom added as he underscored that all aspiring soldiers who have the commitment to serve the Filipino people are welcome.

He also disclosed the importance of combat vehicles in their unit in the conduct of military operations in times of hostility.

Lt. Mangagom noted that more than the assistance in mobility, tanks also serve as protective covers since they are made bullet-proof.

Simultaneous with the display was an AVP presentation showing the competence and trainings undergone by the soldiers and some of their newly-acquired vehicles.
