President Benigno S. Aquino III thanked the men and women of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for their sacrifices in helping the people during calamities and in supporting all the government's programs and reforms during the 76th anniversary celebration of the AFP in Camp Aguinaldo.

Despite many trials and challenges in the AFP, the President also declared that the government would continue to push for its equipment modernization and provide for the needs of every Filipino soldier.

"Sagrado ang pondong inilalaan ng ating mga kababayan, kung kaya't hindi natin ito gagamitin sa maling paraan. Mulat tayong sa bawat pisong ibinulsa, buhay ng isang sundalo ang nalalagay sa peligro at pinagkakaitang umasenso. Hindi po tayo nag-aatubiling gawin ang tama lalo pa't nagbubunsod ito ng magandang resulta. Katangi-tangi nga po ang pagtataguyod ng AFP sa kapayapaan at kaayusan sa ating bayan," said the Commander-in-Chief.

President Aquino also led the awarding of 14 deserving personnel who contributed to the advancement and promotion of the Armed Force's Internal Peace and Security Plan (IPSP) 'Bayanihan'.

The 14 awardees coming from both the military and civilian workforce were given AFP medals, they are Cpl Isagani Zamora, PN/Marines (posthumous); BGen. Nestor Añonuevo; 1Lt Guy Ray Madrid (PA); Cpl Abraham Parreño (PA); MGen. Francisco Cruz Jr.; Col Oscar Lactao (PA); RAdm Edgardo Tamayo; Ret.
