PH Army sends rapid deployment force to Sulu




This is to show that while administration is pushing hard to have peace with all the enemies of the state, its more serious in eradicating those who continue to spread war and chaos to peace loving communities.

The Philippine Army last week sent one of its best unit to Sulu to help address the peace and order situation on the island province.



In South Harbor they held a simple ceremony to send off the brave soldiers of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, the unit formed for rapid deployment and territorial defense.

“The men and women of the 1BCT will be deployed in Sulu to ensure peace and security. They are men and women of action and we commend them for going about their mission without much fanfare, an attitude they carry even beyond their service in the military,” said Philippine Army Spokesperson  Lt. Col. Ramon Zagala.

The 1BCT is described as the Army’s contingency force capable of addressing conventional, unconventional, and asymmetric threats. It includes an intelligence unit, a combat engineer company, aviation, EOD platoon, 1st Air Defense Artillery Battery, among others.


BRP Tarlac, the Philippine Navy’s strategic sealift vessel will transport the troops to Sulu.

The 1BCT was activated in late 2018 and is home based at Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija.
