6ID gets 560 force multipliers for peacekeeping missions

CAMP SIONGCO, Maguindanao – A total of 560 civilian volunteers have been added to the military’s force multipliers in Maguindanao following their graduation from basic military training on Friday.

The 560 civilians completed their 45-day basic military training at the 6th Division Civilian Armed Auxiliary (CAA) Affairs Unit Training Base at Barangay Taviran in Datu Odin Sinsuat town.

Colonel Michael Santos, 6ID chief of staff, served as guest of honor and speaker during the graduation rites that turned the 560 civilian volunteers into new members of the Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Unit Active Auxiliaries (CAFGU-CAA).

“You have evolved from carefree civilians to disciplined and skilled military troops,” Santos told the graduates.

Santos represented Maj. Gen. Juvymax Uy, 6ID commander and concurrent head of the Army-led Joint Task Force Central (JTFC), during the graduation activity.

The group belonged to CAA-I Basic Military Training Classes 90-100 2021 and are considered as “Army force multipliers.”

“Remember you are not only CAFGUs but you will play vital roles to achieve the vision-mission of JTFC that is to achieve peace in this part of Mindanao,” Santos added.

The new CAAs will be deployed to the different communities in Central Mindanao and will complement the 6ID peace advocacy campaign. (PNA)
