The three took their oath during their induction ceremony in Puerto Princesa, Palawan last Sunday, March 17.
Matteo Guidicelli, Erwan Heusaff, and Nico Bolzico were among the four new officers formally inducted into the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary (PCGA) in Puerto Princesa, Palawan last Sunday, March 17.
Moments after their induction ceremony, Jacques Branellec, head of Jewelmer Group and a PCGA officer, took to social media to congratulate and welcome their newly recruited lieutenant commanders. “Congratulations to all the newly inducted officers of the Philippines Coast Guard Auxiliary 408 squadron. It was an honor to welcome my brothers to help with the mission of the PCGA to aid in marine environmental protection, marine search and rescue, and youth environmental education. Welcome aboard,” he said.
Prior to Matteo, Erwan, and Nico, actor Gerald Anderson was first to be inducted into the PCGA last February 26.
The PCGA is a volunteer organization committed to support and promote the “safety of life and property at sea, the protection of the marine environment and its resources, the conduct of maritime search and rescue, the maintenance of aids to navigation, recreational safety and such other activities that enhance maritime community relations.” They have been around since 1972.
