Deputy brigade commander Colonel Reynaldo Labanen said the military is conducting the security awareness campaign to educate the students on the role of the military and inform them on how to avoid joining the communist terrorist group.

Labanen said that the youth are easily swayed by propaganda of the communist terrorist groups. He said that as evidenced last year, the victims of clashes between the military and New People’s Army (NPA) are young people who have joined the NPA.

The army official urged students to become responsible sons and daughters as well as responsible community members by joining the development efforts and activities of the government.

“We know that youth in this stage are at the prime of idealism and enthusiasm. They are easily swayed if not forewarned,” Labanen said.

The security awareness campaign to students of the 502nd Infantry Brigade’s area of operations is an annual activity of the military to educate and forewarn students by not joining the rebels.
