Marcos Asks Army Officer to Give Insight on Rescue Operations: Sen. Imee Marcos asks Army Col. Eduardo Monjardin his insights and experiences on disaster preparedness and rescue operations during the typhoons that regularly batter the country. Monjardin, who was assigned in Bicol, recommended the improvement of the country’s communication system and the use of aircraft in the aftermath of disasters. “Based on my experience in Bicol, we had to use motorcycles to bring relief goods to the victims because the roads are inaccessible,” Monjardin told Marcos during the Commission on Appointment’s deliberation on the 44 ad interim appointments and six nominations of the senior officers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Wednesday, December 9, 2020.
