UNIT HISTORY OF 704TH (SIQUIJOR)
For many years, the local government in the island province of Siquijor headed by then Governor Arthur M Marchan known as the father of the land, after having felt the necessity of trained reservists in their province, had requested for the activation of Community Defense Center in the area thru MAJOR DELFIN H FERNANDEZ Philippine Army, the former Commanding Officer of 703rd Community Defense Center based in Negros Oriental. MAJ FERNANDEZ then endorsed the needed supporting documents to higher headquarters for approval. It was through such effort that the 704th (Siquijor) Community Defense Center, 7th Regional Community Defense Group, Army Reserve Command became a unit pursuant to Headquarters Philippine Army General Orders Number 520 dated 3 October 2002.
The personnel and equipment of said unit were generated from within the existing resources of the Army Reserve Command with the primary mission –to be competent trainor and citizen Army builder. In the pursuit of this mission, the unit continued to develop, organize, train, equip and administer a capable reserve force in support of the Armed Forces Modernization Program and socio-economic development efforts in the area.
