“We showed strength when necessary, and practiced restraint when needed.” These are the words of MAJOR GENERAL ANGELITO M DE LEON, Commander of the 7th Infantry (KAUGNAY) Division, Philippine Army

, as he looked back at the past year while delivering his message for the Commanding Officers from line units, post units and OPCON units, as well as the general, personal, technical and special staffs of 7ID during the traditional New Year’s Call held at the Pahingahan Multi-Function Hall last Friday (January 13).

The New Year’s Call is an annual gathering of unit Commanders, staffs of 7ID Headquarters, Sergeant Majors, Chief Clerks of respective offices and civilian employees, (with some accompanied by their spouses), at the start of the year to reaffirm their commitment to their sworn duty and adherence to the chain of command.  It likewise delivers a message of gratitude for the accomplishments of the past year and a promise of better performance for this year.

At the conclusion of the Commander’s message, MGen De Leon raised his glass, initiating the Traditional Toast that is also part of the military custom during a New Year’s Call. The occasion ended with the singing of Auld Lang Syne

(which translates to “Times Gone By”).

A Command Conference immediately followed the New Year’s Call.  The Officers readily moved to the 7ID Officers’ Clubhouse where the Conference was held.The Conference aims to give guidance and focus the efforts of the Command on the tasks at hand for 2017.

The 7ID Commander said that he was happy with the Command’s performance in 2016 and congratulated his Officers for a job well done. He even mentioned that LTGEN ROMEO T TANALGO, Commander of the Northern Luzon Command, AFP, publicly acknowledged the 7ID’s commendable contributions in the accomplishment of the NOLCOM Mission.

There is no doubt that the year 2017 will also bring with it its own share of challenges for the Kaugnay Division as it begins to work in the realization of its goals, but MGen De Leon is certain that through cooperation and steadfast support, 7ID will meet the challenges and emerge victorious.
