Philippine Army marksmen bagged 23 gold, 14 silver and 26 bronze in the 10-day ASEAN Armies Rifle Meet (AARM) which formally concluded Wednesday. The event, which started Nov. 28 and ended Dec. 7, was held at Camp O’Donnell, Capas, Tarlac. Task Force AARM commander Brig. Gen. Herminigildo Francisco Aquino said the achievement of the Philippine Army shooting contingent is a quantum leap against the Asean heavyweights. Around 600 participants from the participating 10 ASEAN states took part in the event. The competing contingents are from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei Darussalam, the Philippines, Laos, Myanmar, and Cambodia.
