To the 8ID Press Corps thank you for your untiring partnership, for sharing not only your precious time with us but of course your sentiments, your opinion and suggestions on how we can more improve our performance and how we can really gain the trust and confidence of each and every member of the community that we are serving.

Division Commander
I must admit that the recent charges of corruption, human rights and other issues that have beset the Armed Forces of the Philippines, we, at the Philippine Army believe that it is imperative to pursue the path to transform your army into a more credible, efficient, reliable responsive organization that can be truly a source of national pride for all Filipinos.

It is in this light that the PA crafted and currently is implementing the army transformation roadmap, of course in partnership with the Institute of Solidarity in Asia (ISA). For the past 2 days you’ve been given series of lectures and orientation on army’s ATR as your partner and stakeholder in our advocacy for peace and development, you’re now aware that your army today is truly transforming into a professional army. The negative perceptions of the public against your army in previous years is totally different from today’s army.

We have now an army that is committed to pursue its mandate of serving the people and securing the land. We believe that as of this moment, you are already familiar with good governance mechanism and initiatives of the PA to pursue genuine reforms in the organization.

Expectedly, as our partners in the media, please continue helping us achieve true transformation by spreading our advocacy and bridging us closer to the people and the community. Surely with your utmost support our journey towards the implementation of the ATR could soonest be attained and that of course we will have an army that is truly loved by the people we serve.

With the numerous challenges facing our organization, your efforts in cascading information to the public on what the army is doing in helping the government in its development goals for the welfare of all is very essential. As our key partners we are very thankful in branding the 8th Infantry (Stormtroopers) Division an agent and symbol of peace that brings hope to the constituents, develop and support the ideals and aspirations. That’s we become more relevant in national development to achieve peace and order and shaping the perception of the public that the army now is their partner for peace, progress and prosperity.

Rest assured that the 8ID will always be transparent in all its activities expected of their truly professional and disciplined organization. We’ll always uphold the people’s rights and welfare and will never tolerate any wrongdoing committed by any of our member. We will always be fair and unbiased for we believe that truth and justice will make an organization truly worthy of the people’s trust and confidence. Of course we can only achieve this if you will continue to support us to realize our vision of a world-class army that is truly a source of national pride.
