ALABEL, Sarangani (April 11, 2022) – PCOL Nicomedes Olaivar, provincial director of the Sarangani Police Provincial Office, together with some police officers, joins the heads of offices and Capitol employees in the celebration of the 80th Anniversary of the Araw ng Kagitingan and Philippine Veterans Week on April 9 at the Capitol grounds. “This celebration is an inspiration to all of us that this great value of liberty paid by the blood of our veterans should be taught to our youth to aid them to value the importance of patriotism,” Olaivar said in his speech. A flag-raising ceremony was also held, led by the Provincial Security Group (PSG), and the wreath-laying rites were performed by the heads of offices and other representatives. The Day of Valor and the Philippine Veterans Week are commemorative events celebrated every 9th of April and from April 5 to 11 of every year in remembrance of the valor of the Filipino freedom fighters and war veterans who fought during World War II and who rendered honorable military service in defending the country in times of war and peace. Since then, annual commemorations are held in shrines that stand as reminders of the country’s courageous past.
