Francis Tolentino: ROTC develops discipline, nationalism among youth

Dec 2, 2018 @ 19:34

Senatorial candidate Francis Tolentino said the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) helps young Filipinos develop discipline and love of country.

The Cavite politiko made the remark following the various reactions to the proposal to make the ROTC mandatory in Senior High School.

Tolentino said he agrees with this proposal.

“Bilang isang Hene­ral, naniniwala akong makatutulong ang pagpapanumbalik ng ROTC upang mahubog ang ating kabataan sa disiplina at pagmamalasakit sa bayan at kapwa na kanilang mapapakinabangan sa kanilang buhay,” he said.

“Ang pagsasanay ng kabataang Pilipino sa ilalim ng ROTC ay makatutulong sa pagpaparami at pagpapalakas ng ating militar at bahagi ng ating paghahanda sa anumang kaganapang mangangailangan ng matibay na ­depensang pang-nasyunal sa ­hinaharap. Hindi natin nais sabihin na tayo ay naghahanda sa pakiki­pagdigma. Nais lamang nating bigyan-diin ang kahalagahan ng paghahanda,” Tolentino added.
