MORE than 100 troops who finished the Scout Ranger Course received the “Tabak” badge during their graduation rites at Camp Pablo Tecson, San Miguel, Bulacan on January 17, 2023.

1001st Infantry Brigade Commander Brig. Gen. Jesus P. Durante III, the guest of honor and speaker, lauded the 164 troops who belong to SRC Class 218-22.

He congratulated them for earning their “tabak” badge.

“When you go back to the field prove the skill, stamina and spirit of a Scout Ranger and deliver the combat excellence and discipline you gained during your training,” Durante told the troops.

For more than seven decades, Scout Rangers, who are also known as “Musangs”, have shown grit, courage and audacity in fighting the enemies of the state.
