Generals Victor Batac, Rolando Garcia, Virtus Gil, Ricardo De Leon,
Jaime Dela Cruz, Dominador Domingo, Jose Lalisan, Teodorico Viduya,
and Francisco Zubia.
I also talked through phone
to Rear Admiral Ruben Domingo(Palawan), Police Director Reynaldo
Acop, and Brig General Prospero Ocampo(Palawan).
To top them all, I was
very glad to have met again Director-General/Senator Panfilo Lacson
who is now running as President in the coming May election.
Just a rejoinder. Although
the rest of the Class did not reach the star ranks, it does not
mean that their service have not been outstanding. These achievements
will be the focus of another article.
God Bless Class 71 Matatags!
