Sa lahat ng ito, tiwala akong patuloy lang na ipamamalas ng ating Sandatahang Lakas ang husay, disiplina, at karangalang tatak ng sundalong Pilipino.
Nawa’y maalala ninyo na ang bawat kilos ninyo, bawat salita, bawat pasya sa bawat sangandaang kakaharapin, ay manganganak ng maraming implikasyon sa Boss na ating sinumpaang pagsilbihan.
“Sa pakikipagpulong natin sa Kagalang-galang na Presidenteng Park Geun-hye, nilatag niya ang mga interes at hakbang ng kanyang bansa para lalong palakasin ang ating magandang ugnayan. Ipinabatid nga ni President Park na may mga kumpanyang Koreano na interesadong lumahok pa sa mga naglalakihang proyekto sa ating bansa.”
Ito na nga po ang huli nating biyahe sa labas ng Pilipinas ngayong taon. Tulad ng dati, makakaasa po kayo: Susulitin natin ang bawat sandali upang mapaigting ang pakikipagtulungan sa ibang bansa; kukunin natin ang bawat pagkakataon para makapaghatid ng mas maraming oportunidad sa pag-asenso sa ating mga Boss, ang sambayanang Pilipino.
