PMA installs new chief
by Redjie Cawis

The Philippine Military Academy has a new chief.

Armed Forces of the Philippines Vice Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Noel Coballes presided  in  the turnover ceremony of outgoing PMA Supt. Nonato Peralta Jr. to the new chief, Lt. Gen. Irineo Espino.

The ceremony conducted at the Borromeo Field was witnessed by military officers, faculty, cadets and other guests including their mistahs, Friday morning.

Peralta and Espino belong to the PMA Matapat Class of 1979.

Peralta will assume as the new commander of the 2nd Infantry Division (ID) of the Philippine Army known as the Home of the Jungle Fighters. He will be the 34th commander of the 2nd ID replacing Maj. Gen. Eduardo del Rosario who has retired from military service.

Espino is the AFP inspector general before taking on the leadership of the PMA.

During Peralta’s term, the PMA curriculum underwent major changes. Socio-humanistic courses were added to balance techno-scientific disciplines with a view toward training and developing a cadet to become a well-rounded officer, was also introduced.

Peralta also focused on cadet training ensuring that what cadets learned in the academy will complement the AFP’s program of instilling bayanihan among would-be soldiers. He also saw to it that the cadets were given a foundation on peace-building initiatives and stakeholders-engagement. Respect for human rights and the rule of law were also given emphasis.

Cadets improved their endurance and strength during the training he initiated. It was during his time that the cadets were able to join and excel in different marathons and endurance challenges in and out of the city.

As PMA chief, he also  initiated the lowering of the height  requirement of incoming cadets starting from cadets who would compose PMA Class of 2017.
