MANILA, Feb. 13 — Col. Ronaldo N. Albano was appointed as head of Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)'s Adjutant General's Office Wednesday.

Albano, the former 402nd Infantry Brigade commander, a sub-unit of the 4th Infantry Division, replaced Brig. Gen. Rolando G. Jungco who was appointed as AFP Civil Relations Service head last Feb. 1.

The former also served as chief of the unified staff of the Central Command in Camp Lapu-Lapu in Cebu.

He is a member of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) “Matikas” Class of 1983.

“I enjoin every member of the Adjutant General’s Office to move in unison with the AFP’s mission. I will continue the efforts set forth by my predecessors so as not to unduly disrupt the AFP’s goal,” Albano said.

Meanwhile, the outgoing Secretary Joint Staff (SJS), Col. Danilo Chad D. Isleta assumed as the new Chief of the Office of the Strategic and Special Studies (OSSS).

He replaced Col. Herminigildo Francisco C. Aquino who is the current Senior Military Assistant to the Secretary of National Defense, Voltaire T. Gazmin.

Isleta relinquished his post to former OSSS deputy chief, Col. Cornelio Valencia who assumed as the new SJS Wednesday.

Isleta was earlier awarded with the Distinguished Service Star with 1st Bronze Anahaw Leaf while Aquino received the Military Merit Medal with Third Bronze Anahaw Leaf for their outstanding performance in their respective positions.

They were awarded along with Jungco who received his Distinguished Service Star for ably leading the office for 17 months. (PNA)
