The Philippine Military Academy will hold a silent drill exhibition in Paseo del Mar, Naval Forces Western Mindanao  and in Western Mindanao Command Grandstand on April 21, 22 and 23, 2014 respectively.

This exhibition is part of their annual Southern Cruise for calendar year 2014.

The silent drill exhibition will be performed by the third class cadets of PMA Class 2017 which will showcase the finest movements in military marching and formation.

The main highlight of the Southern Cruise is to promote PMA in the different areas in order to recruit the best, brightest and the fittest applicants for the military service.

In this activity, cadets will also be oriented in the different AFP units of the Philippines that will help them choose which branch of service they will serve—the Army, the Navy or the Air Force after graduating from the academy.

This is a continuing activity, after the successful conduct of the Southern Cruises for PMA classes 2014 and 2015 in the past two years—a revival after 20 years.

Zamboanga City is one of the ports of call selected aside from Davao City, Cebu City, Cavite, Corregidor Island and Puerto Princesa Palawan.
