MANILA, July 22 — The Philippine Navy (PN) on Monday announced that the BRP Ramon Alcaraz (PF-16), the second Hamilton-class cutter in its service, will arrive in Guam by this week.

Lt. Cmdr. Gregory Fabic, PN spokesperson, declined to give more details citing reasons of operational security.

He added that all seaboard systems are working fine.

"BRP Ramon Alcaraz is expected to arrive off Guam by the latter part of this week," he said.

The distance between Hawaii and Guam is around 3,828 miles or around 6,160 kilometers.

The Philippines frigate arrived in Hawaii last July 13 and was warmly welcomed by the Filipino community there.

During its stay in Hawaii, the crew headed by Capt. Ernesto Baldovino toured the USS Arizona Memorial.

Also, five enlisted personnel of the BRP Ramon Alcaraz took their oaths of re-enlistment.

These included EN2 Regidor Labrador, EN3 Tomas Ciruelos Jr., EN3 Ernesto Cabahug, S2YN Erica Celemin and EN3 Marlon Martonito.

The Filipino frigate left Hawaii for Guam last July 17. (PNA)
