Matteo Guidicelli: ‘Thank you to each and every soldier I met today for the warm welcome.’
Matteo Guidicelli took to social media to express how honored he was to join the Philippine Army in a demonstration on Monday, May 20. The actor also extended his gratitude for being given him the opportunity to do so.
He wrote, "It was an honor and privilege to have taken part in the Philippine Army’s field demonstration alongside the Special Operations Unit and other military units this afternoon. It was a humbling experience to have set foot on the sacred grounds of the Borromeo Field in the Philippine Military Academy."
Matteo continued, "Thank you to each and every soldier I met today for the warm welcome. ‘Serving the people. Securing the land.’ I am a proud Filipino! @philippinearmy #ARMY."
Matteo announced last April that he had become part of the Army Reserve Command. “I officially joined the Philippine Army today because I love my country. I would like to thank the people that have been very supportive. Exciting times ahead," he shared last month on Instagram.
