There are no more rehearsals and no more take two, and one mistake may result in the loss of your life or the life of the Marine beside you. Hence, I encourage you to remember and apply every training competency that you have gone through and be prepared for the greater challenges that await you”.
These graduates will be distributed in all Philippine Marine Corps operational areas to serve the country and its people with pride and dignity.
