MANILA, June 12 — The Philippine Army's 3rd Infantry Division joins the entire Filipino nation in the celebration of the country's 114th Independence Day on Tuesday in Capiz.

Major Enrico Gil Ileto, the unit's spokesperson, said simultaneous flag-raising ceremonies were held 8:00 a.m. at the 3rd ID headquarters in Camp General Macario Peralta Jr. in Jamindan, Capiz, and its attached brigade and battalions.

"This exercise will continue to inspire us in the exercise of our sworn duties to protect the people in this region of the country," he added.

Ileto said this year's Independence Day theme: "Kalayaan Pananagutan Ng Bayan Para Sa Tuwid Na Daan" truly goes deep into every soldier's heart as the Army continues to adhere to the principle of transparency and accountability in all its undertakings and transactions for the nation's freedom.
