    FORT MAGSAYSAY, Nueva Ecija – As a way of extending its gratitude to its host community, the troops of the 84th Infantry (VICTORIOUS) Battalion, Philippine Army led by its Commanding Officer, LTC Enrico Gil C Ileto, conducted a Free Medical and Dental Consultation benefiting a total of 174 dependents of 84IB troopers, Cafgu Active Auxiliary (CAA), and residents from Brgy Sto Nino 2nd, San Jose City on March 08, 2022.

    According to LTC Ileto, the activity is in line with the 84IB’s 12th Founding Anniversary Celebration with a theme: “Victorious @12—Through the years, 2009 up to present of Service and Excellence”.

    Among the services offered during the activity were medical and dental check-ups with tooth extraction; distribution of reading glasses, wheelchair, and medicines; and free haircuts.

    Dr. Sheree Ann A Quinan and Dr. Helen L Ladores, 84IB’s Medical and Dental retainer were grateful to the 84IB troops for initiating the activity that benefits the dependents and constituents.

    Mr. Ernesto Espiritu, a 68 year-old PWD, expressed his gratitude to the Army and said, “labis ang aking pasasalamat sa 84IB sa pinagkaloob sa akin na wheel chair. Dahil dito ay makakalabas na ako ng aking bahay at magagawa ang mga bagay na hindi ko nagagawa sa kadahilanang hindi ako nakakalakad sa aking nararamdamang sakit”.

    Meanwhile, LTC Ileto also expressed his gratitude to the Medical and Dental Retainers and all partner stakeholders who supported the conduct of the activity.

    On the other hand, MGen Andrew D. Costelo, Commander of 7th Infantry (KAUGNAY) Division, Philippine Army, lauded the initiative of the 84IB troops that benefited the residents of Brgy Sto Nino 2nd, San Jose City.
