The Philippine Coast Guard Education, Training, and Doctrine Command (CGETDC) held the RECOGNITION RITES of the Coast Guard Non-Officer’s Course (CGNOC) Class 85 – 2021 “BAGSIK-LAYA”, composed of 573 male trainees, at the Regional Training Center Zamboanga on 18 January 2022.
During the ceremony, CGETDC Deputy Commander, CG Commodore Roben N De Guzman, said the “recognition rites” holds the essence of a Candidate Coast Guard Non-Officer’s victory over one's desire to quit from the hardship of training.
“It stands for overcoming the great temptation to resign. Being recognized, a Candidate Coast Guard Non-Officer acknowledges oneself before the world that one has mastered oneself and accepted the life of followership and most importantly, the life of Coast Guard service,” he added.
CONGRATULATIONS, CGNOC CLASS 85 – 2021!
