Some 352 newly appointed male draftees will soon undergo 18 months of pre-Coast Guardsman’s training and endure another six months of regimental training.

Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) Commandant Admiral Rodolfo D. Isorena recently led the oath taking ceremony for the additional work force in the coast guard.

“We need brave souls, disciplined men, and good soldiers. We need people who love their country more than they love themselves or their family. These qualities of the Coast Guard are the reason why we successfully carry out our mandates to save lives and keep our Philippine waters safe,” Isorena said.

According to the PCG, the draftees have undergone and qualified various exams such as the aptitude battery exam, physical fitness test, psychological/neurological exam, medical and dental exams. — PCG/RJB/JEG/PIA-NCR
