Major General Herminigildo Aquino, Commander of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Command and General Staff College (AFPCGSC), pins the CGSC Badge to Senator Loren Legarda after completing the Command and General Staff Course. Legarda graduated as part of Class 62 of the AFPCGSC, which will qualify her for promotion to full-fledged colonel.
At the Armed Forces of the Philippines Command and General Staff College (AFPCGSC) Class 62 graduation, Senator Loren Legarda received an Academic Excellence award for her research paper, “The AFP in the Humanitarian Space: Building Resilience, Fostering Resilient Communities,” which explores the role of the military not just in responding to disasters, but also in reducing climate and disaster risks.
