Something To be Proud of: UN Rehires Retired Filipino General
This reminds me of the great American General Douglas Mac Arthur who was called back from retirement to lead troops in retaking Japanese occupied countries in Asia and eventually leading Japan and reestablishing it as a peace loving and modern country.
Gen. Natalio Ecarma III retired a few days ago. However, the United Nations leadership believes that he did a splendid job as its commander of UN troops in the Golan Heights. Because of that, they requested that he be given an extended tour. President Aquino called Ecarma back to active duty but this time, as a naval reservist.
With so many active duty generals in the Philippines and everywhere else, it is indeed very impressive of Ecarma to have been requested to be back.
Maraming Salamat Natalio Ecarma III, you make your grand dad, Natalio I and your dad, Natalio II and the rest of the 70 million filipinos very proud!
