Lets have a mandatory military service for the youth - Sen. Bato dela Rosa




We will be like South Korea.
Senator elect Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa said he will prioritize a bill which will require a mandatory military service for Filipino youth, instead of the customary training for the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC).

"Like other countries na pagdating mo ng 18 years old, obligado ka na mag-serve sa military for 2 years. Walang pakialam ang gobyerno kung anak ka ng mayaman o ng mahirap, kung sikat ka o artista ka. Maganda rin iyon," the former Philippine National Chief said.

The senator said this will vastly improve our territorial defense.
"Itong mga kabataan na sige dakdak nang dakdak. Sila lang daw ang makabayan, ang Duterte administration daw ay Team China. Ako ayaw ko na agawin ng China ang ating bansa," dela Rosa said.
"Kaya gusto ko malakas ang ating territorial defense when it comes to foreign aggression, foreign invasion so kailangang i-prepare natin ang ating kabataan na mayroon tayong enough reserves, human resource reserves."

Last week, the House of Representatives approved on a final and third reading a bill requiring senior high students a mandatory Reserved Officers Training Course (ROTC).
The Department of National Defense, Philippine National Police, and the Department of Education has made it public its support for such endeavour as it would  instill patriotism and nationalism among the youth to become useful citizens.
