Project Lakbay Aral Goes to the AFP Museum

After attending the Symposium on Valor on Heroism held at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Commissioned Officers Club (AFPCOC) last March 13, 2013, VIDES ALS students and volunteers explored the museum of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

The AFP Museum was established in 1996 "to showcase the country’s rich military heritage spanning more than 500 years of bravery and heroism, to make known the vision, ideals and glory of Filipino Soldiers and to highlight the heroic contributions of the Armed Forces of the Philippines to Nation Building." 

Learning about the glorious history and heritage of our country's military was made entertaining and engaging thanks to the superb guide, Mr. Rey Macarista, whom the kids fondly called Kuya Kim.  


The trip to the AFP Museum gave the students and volunteers the opportunity to get a glimpse of our military traditions and more significantly, learn about the lesser known battles fiercely fought and won by our Filipino soldiers. 

Everyone went home happy and inspired, armed with knowledge about the history of our military institution and the heroism of our nation's defenders. 

Sending you happy thoughts...
