The Armed Forces and Police Savings and Loans Associations, Inc. (AFPSLAI) has donated some 10 power generator sets to the Philippine Navy (PN), which would be deployed to the country’s stations in the West Philippine Sea (WPS).

These equipment were formally received by Philippine Navy (PN) chief Vice Admiral Toribio Adaci Jr. from AFPSLAI president and chief executive officer, retired Vice Adm. Gaudencio Collado Jr. in simple rites at the Philippine Navy (PN) headquarters in Manila on Tuesday.

“During the handover, the FOIC (Flag-Officer-in-Command underscored the importance of these mission-critical equipment in assisting personnel who put their lives on the line to defend the borders of our nation against all forms of threats, particularly in the WPS,” PN spokesperson Commander John Percie Alcos said in a statement Wednesday night.

During the turnover, Collado said the PN’s role in defending the country’s sovereignty and territory has become even more critical and that the AFPSLAI strongly supports the service in developing “a strong naval force capable of protecting the country’s maritime interests and securing the Filipino people.”

He also said the equipment donation symbolizes AFPSLAI’s unwavering commitment to social responsibility and solidarity.

Meanwhile, Adaci expressed his sincere gratitude to the AFPSLAI team for their support to the welfare of the men and women in uniform over the years.

“Your contribution fulfills an immediate necessity for our troops and serves as a reminder that we can rely on your support in times of need,” he stressed.

As this developed, the Philippine Fleet (PF) announced that Capt. Lued Lincuna was appointed acting commander of the Littoral Combat Force (LCF) on Wednesday, replacing Commodore Carlo Lagasca who is set to retire from the military service.
