SND begins series of base visits

August 10, 2023

Secretary of National Defense (SND) Gilberto C. Teodoro, Jr., is embarking on a series of visits to military bases and identified Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) locations.

Secretary Teodoro initially visited the Calayan Municipality in Cagayan on August 9, 2023, where he attended a Town Hall meeting hosted by Calayan Mayor Joseph Llopis and the Sangguniang Bayan.

The engagement allowed the SND to personally interact with local officials, and discussed matters related to security and collaboration between the local government and defense sector.

On the same day, the Defense Chief also visited the headquarters of the 4th Marine “Makusug” Brigade, Philippine Marine Corps, in Camp Cape Bojeador, Ilocos Norte, where he engaged the Marines in a “Talk to the Troops”, and participated in the traditional Hollow Block Making for the Brigade’s Headquarters Building.

The SND is expected to visit other military bases and EDCA sites.
