Western Mindanao Command Chief, Lt. Gen. Alfredo Rosario, Jr., made his farewell visit to the 1102nd Infantry “Ganarul” Brigade and 1101st Infantry “Gagandilan” Brigade, both based in Sulu on Friday, September 16, 2022.
Lt. Gen. Rosario, Jr. expressed his gratitude to the officers and soldiers of the two brigades for their dedication to duty and unwavering support for the accomplishment of the WestMinCom’s mission which greatly contributed to many significant milestones during his stint as the unified command chief.
The retiring general also shared his best practices and his mantra; the 5Ps which he believes will inspire young soldiers to be better and to do better as they continue to climb the ladder of their military career.
“To attain success, you must always consider the 5Ps which stand for Plan, Prepare, Perform, Play, and Pray. For me, the most important P is Pray. When we pray, everything else falls in place,” Lt. Gen. Rosario said.
During his visit to the two brigades, Lt. Gen. Rosario, Jr. was accompanied by Brig. Gen. Antonio Bautista, Jr., the Assistant Division Commander of 11th Infantry Division, and the Triad officers of WestMinCom.
