ALABEL, Sarangani (January 17, 2018) – Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon and Capitol employees acknowledge the first batch of Philippine Army graduates from Sarangani consisting of 34 indigenous people (IP) recruits from different municipalities after the flag ceremony on January 15. This was headed by company commander, Malapatan native 1st Lieutenant Rezel Faith Sela, of the 1002nd Infantry Brigade. “We really took time in training the team from civilian to military. Which means, turning their lives 360° to completely discipline them,” 1Lt. Sela said. “I admit, there were times that my gender affects my job. I was the only woman in the group and at the same time, I am their commander.” Governor Solon lauded 1Lt. Sela’s bravery for leading the team and the rest of the group who are ready to protect Sarangani. (Jimmy Toribio-Donna Mahusay/SARANGANI COMMUNICATIONS SERVICE)
