It’s been three years since Matteo Guidicelli became the first local celebrity to complete the training course with the Philippine Army's elite forces in the 30-day Scout Ranger Orientation and Leadership Development Course. The 32-year-old actor officially joined the Army Reserve Command in April 2019. His current rank in the Philippine Army is as a 2nd Lieutenant of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

“It was an honor to have stayed and trained with the brave individuals during my Basic Airborne Course.

“More power and thank you for your service!!”

He also released a documentary called Ranger G chronicling his life during Scout Ranger training. The hour-and-a-half-long film is available for streaming on iWant.
