Season’s Greetings to the UP Corps of Cadets! As you and your families gather to celebrate the holidays, I would like to take this moment to send you my warmest greetings and salutations.
I am glad to celebrate Christmas as your Commandant, this has been truly an extraordinary experience. Throughout the previous semester, and the first half of this semester, I have seen and admired your dedication and enthusiasm, living by our shibboleths of Duty well-performed, Honor untarnished, and Country above self.
This year has brought many challenges that continue to leave sectors of our society suffering, the families still recovering from the disaster brought by typhoon Yolanda, political turmoil in our government, to name a few. But even during these trying times, I believe that there is still much to celebrate this Christmas: the love of family and friends, the spirit of peace and unity among men and women, the ties of communities.
As we progress through this Corps year, and eventually in our lives, remember that you are UP, further more, that you are UP ROTC. You are gifted with extraordinary skills, you are young men and women of character. You are bound to do great, and return exponentially to society.
I continue to be awed, and amused by your determination and commitment to what we do in ROTC. Let us aspire higher, and accomplish greater!

The UP Diliman Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (UPROTC) lives by its shibboleth of Honor, Duty, and Country. These are ideals that dictate the action of every UPROTC Cadet and Cadet Officer. In the recent devastation brought about by super typhoon Yolanda, the Corps of Cadets (COC) of UPROTC readily stepped in to help in relief efforts, both based in the University, and directly to those affected in Eastern Visayas.

Early in the morning, we were asked to form in front of Classroom 2. We practiced different riffle drills from “Kanang Balikat”, “Kaliwang Balikat” and ceremony drills like “tanghal”. It took some time before all of us in the unit were almost synchronized in doing the drills. We were under the sun for some hours but it was definitely fulfilling when CMaj Fiestada 1Cl noted that we were improving and with more practice, we’ll be able to perfectly execute the drills.

The seventh training day, July 28, 2013, for the cadets of University of the Philippines Reserve Officers Training was one of the most tense, fun and exciting. Tense because the cadets have to be alert for all of the times, well the “level of alertness” is much higher compared from the other training days. It is fun and exciting because of the activities that occurred. But what did they train that day? It is about marksmanship (handling and firing a firearm) and human dignity.

The 5th training day of the ROTC, held last July 13 at the DMST Complex, focused on lectures on Emergency Rescue and Transfer (ERT), and on Gender Sensitivity.

In the DMST complex, after the inspection, each company was taught the basic marching procedures which are usually done during drills and for ceremonies. This proved to be a lesson that would take a lot of practice to master, and so it was advised that cadets meet for practice. “Nakakalito ang marching,” says CPvt Charisse Cervana 4Cl from the Service Support Unit.

Lectures on Philippine Society and Culture and Understanding the self were covered in the 4th training day. The lesson on society and culture became more of a review of the cadet’s past history and social study lessons that’s why they were able to participate in the class instructions.
