• New Solcom chief named


    LIEUTENANT General Ferdinand Quidilla has been appointed commander of the Philippine Army’s Southern Luzon Command, described by the military as the “security-sensitive” part of the country. A native of South Cotabato and a member of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) “Matikas” Class of 1983, Quidilla took over the post from Maj. Gen. Romeo Gan, who held the position in an acting capacity after the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff, Gen. Ricardo Visaya, vacated the post in July. He was the commander of the Army’s 9th Infantry Division in Bicol prior to his new assignment. Quidilla began his military career as a platoon leader of the 7th Scout Ranger Company, First Scout Ranger Regiment, until he became the Operations Officer of the 3rd Scout Ranger Battalion.
