Why not make him a major while they're at it?:supergrin:

There are a lot of prominent guys around who got commissioned just because of their positions; captain is the lowest rank they could get, and we who sweated and crawled for our serial numbers and get outranked by them just look at each other and sigh...

Still, since Pacman gave glory to the good old RP, perhaps he deserves it.

And mine was a serious reply to your question! Celebrities are treated like they can walk on water back home. Majority of our kabayans are so starstruck that logic escapes them.

Think about all the actor politicos who got voted into office, the sexy-but-no-talent TV personalities that could get away with saying really dumb things and the actors/actresses who can't sing but because they are actors/actresses, they think they are also singers. God help us!!!!

As you have already pointed out, one has to fulfill all the requirements and must prove proficiency in a couple of discipline to be a M/SGT.

While he did do an outstanding job as a boxer and making our country proud, he did not earn his promotion based on the news report posted by chowchow.

For him to be given such a promotion is an insult to all those who worked hard to get there.


Quote:
The Philippine Army has promoted Filipino boxing hero Manny Pacquiao to the next higher rank of master sergeant in the reserve force for bringing honor by defeating Mexican boxer Marco Antonio Barrera at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, last Sunday.

I really would like to see Pacman not only in uniform, but toting a rifle as well. It would be an absolute pity if he, a MSG, could not distinguish one end of a rifle from another, like some big shots I know who got commissioned...

Sometimes I wonder if Filipinos are really mature enough for democracy... all those knuckleheads they vote into office.

What do you want the guy to do? say no? I doubt he asked for a promotion
Besides, the military has lotsd of athletes in it's ranks , puro RP Team and the military pays for everything ( w/c is a good thing). I doubt they pay for the food in Pac's table
I doubt military pt is harder than Pacs training . Minus the torture of course :)

Its unfair and unjust to be promoted on that matter, our real hero who shed their blood for their country men, who dearly fought relentless battle, our real men in uniform who was a fallen warrior, They were the real one must be given a higher honor more than just promotion. But sadly speaking they died with a rank of just plain Private or merit their new rank co`z of their gallantly but what good of this if one was already dead.

Ok lang, went home last weekend but will be coming around this weekend. What are you having fun at the range with? :supergrin:

I may take up the offer of Maj. Kong and join your unit, as soon as I get a new BDA, my BDA is of the old pattern and faded... I was never good at walking the mountain trails... kept slipping...

Let Pacman wear a steel helmet sometime; see how his neck muscles like it.:supergrin: And while he's at it, let him carry and qualify with an M60.

It looked much better in 1977 when I first entered that place. A real showcase nowadays of the state of affairs of the AFP. However, they got a great firing range last time I was there, courtesy of the former Mayor of Tanjay City who lent some heavy equipment.

However, that place really comes alive when there is a deployment of a brigade in Negros. The works, including APCs and helicopters.:)

Este, they're military athletes because they're organic AFP personnel, that is, regular soldiers, airmen or sailors when they're not competing, and thus most assuredly went through basic training. So their athletics is for the greater glory of the AFP "on the fields of friendly strife (quote from Gen. MacArthur)" and thus when they win they deserve promotion.:thumbsup:

It would be more satisfying if the promotion was earned the hard way. BGEN James Stewart USAF did not get his promotions because he was a renowned actor, but because he was skilled at piloting a B-17 through the European sky infested with flak and German fighters, and rose to command a bomber group on sheer merit.:thumbsup:

Just curious , how would yuo know this? that they underwent bsic training?
Kasi I almost became a military athlete ( shooting ) , no military training whatsoever , I just have to shoot and practice and compete
Regular basic pay as a private , but had a lot of inentives w/c I wont say here :)
I was not required to do anything but shoot

There were some athletes, runners particularly, who were introduced as members of the Philippine Army and Navy, not privates but NCOs. As such, as NCOs they should have had basic training in the past. Anyway I'll ask around, there may be those that went in your way (almost in your case):supergrin: or there may be those who were organic AFP personnel at the first instance.

Perhaps your case is akin to the late Emil Zatopek, the Olympic gold medalist runner of Czechoslovakia who when running looked as if he were always dying:supergrin:; he was made a captain in the Czech army.

I was invited , kasi in their words , " nananalo ka , at mukang wala ka naman ginagawa" haha
didnt join because I wont be in the reserves , I'll be regular army w/ id and basic pay
I dont mind the physical training , kahit mag SWAG kaya ko but natakot ako baka pag linisin ng cr or pagbuhatin ako ng bag ng official. How do you say no to an officer when your regular army? Baka sa brig ako ilagay
Di yata kaya ng pride ko :) just kidding
seriously , I have some regrets I didnt join

There's more to Army training than throwing fists or lead, or building up strength and endurance to do so... and in war all rules go out the window, so no pahinga after every two minutes of fighting...

Besides, when he trains, he trains alone...

Sure no problemo, the place is in northern Cebu, Tuburan where it is still considered a nep infested area. as you can see, the simbas tire got gashed by the sharp rocks in the area. :)

The neps usually dont attack if there are more than 10 of us, they just took the simba just in case:) yup us reservists usually carry our personal weapons, unless you want to lug around a heavy and rusty M14 or a beat up M16. The guy with the commando is our squad leader :)

Well, as to boxers being reservists and called out:

There's the German boxer Max Schmeling (did I get the spelling right?) who became a Fallschirmjager (paratrooper) during World War II.

I got a magazine with a WWII recruiting poster with a prominent photo of Joe Louis brandishing a Springfield 1903 with an attached bayonet; curiously he's still wearing the WW1 steel helmet; dunno if he went overseas...

As I said in my previous posts, I guess Pacman deserves his promotion, but he's got plenty of time, as he's still young, to do some reserve soldiering to justify his MSG rank. In safer surroundings; think of all those KFR gangs just salivating to share in his moolah.

I may be getting old and getting fatter so that never in my wildest dreams will I match Pacman's physical fitness, but I did sweat for my O- serial number and lieutenant's "vicks". And let him get past those evil military psychiatrists...

During war, nothing cheers up front-line grunts more than celebrities going up and schmoozing with them. So Pacman need not go up on duty; his bodyguards would shame that of a general, hehe, but his showing up to talk with the troops would mean something to them, shows that somebody actually cared...

It all depends, surely the Army won't expect me to go all the way back to Dumaguete in case of national emergency, perhaps they should take reservists as they find them. If I get caught in Cebu, Cebu unit it is for me. Kasi the AFP, in assigning ROTC graduates, did not take into consideration the fact that guys (and gals, plenty of them nowadays) would be scattered to the four winds after graduation...

I understand what you mean; my apologies to Ninoy but the Filipino is not worth dying for; not after what I've seen these past few months. However, somebody's got to do the "mamatay" in "ang mamatay nang dahil sa yo"... once the regulars get decimated in an invasion (we'll be overrun for sure) it's the citizen soldier's turn... Prioritize na lang your family, I agree they're more valuable, and leave the dying to us unmarried folk hehehe

'Koreans in the Philippines, largely consisting of expatriates from South Korea, form the largest community of overseas Koreans in Southeast Asia; as of February 2007, their latest count has been pegged at 92,608, roughly doubling since 2005.[1][2] The first Korean immigrants came to the Philippines after World War II in search of better living conditions.[1] The term Korean Filipinos is used to refer to Philippine citizens of Korean descent, including, but not limited to, mestizos.[citation needed] The Korean community in the Philippines had little influence on Philippine society until the late 1980s, when the Korean wave (the mass influx of Korean tourists and immigrants, as well as the increasing popularity of South Korean television and pop music) started.[2]

Aside from long-term residents, at least 370,000 South Korean visitors came to the Philippines in 2004 for business, education, and/or leisure purposes.[2] That number grew to 570,000 in 2006, meaning that South Korean tourists formed a larger group than American tourists for the first time.[3] The recent influx of Koreans has been so great that 65% of the 155,744 foreigners who visited Boracay, the Philippines's most popular tourist attraction, were South Koreans.[citation needed] The most well-known Koreatown in the Metro Manila area is located in Makati's Barangay Poblacion. Outside of Manila, many Koreans also reside in quieter provincial cities such as Subic, Davao, and Baguio. The Philippines are also a popular destination for retired South Koreans on fixed pensions; the Filipino government actively promotes the settlement of South Korean retirees in the country.[4] Koreans who grew up in the Philippines also speak Tagalog and regional languages, particularly Ilokano, Kapampangan, Ilonggo (Iloilo and Bacolod), and Cebuano (Cebu, Dumaguete, and Davao), aside from English.[citation needed]

Because of an existing (although slowly disappearing) barrier in regards to language and even dietary preferences, the Korean community is usually seen as a closed group by many Filipinos. Interaction between the two groups is increasing, a good example of which is the rise in popularity of Sandara Park, a Korean singer and actress on Philippine television, and Koreanovelas (televised dramas, similar to Western miniseries, produced in the Korean language for Korean audiences). Korean Christian churches in Metro Manila and other large cities in the Philippines serve as centers of religious and social activity within the Korean community as well.[2] However, Koreans have been criticised for keeping to themselves and forming a closed community.[3]

Many South Koreans living in the Philippines said they were motivated to settle there by the low cost of English-language education and housing, which are significantly cheaper than in their native South Korea. The environment, especially the low levels of air pollution compared to Seoul, are another pull factor for migration.[5] Korean expatriates provide a significant stimulus to the local economy; they are estimated to spend between US$800 and $1000 per month, making an aggregate contribution of over $1 billion per year in consumer spending.[3] South Korean tourists often enroll in short-term courses in English language schools to cope with South Korea's growing demand for English proficiency. Their numbers include a large proportion of young people; according to Son Jung-Son of the Philippine-Korean Cultural Center in Seoul, over 1,500 Koreans under 20 years old arrive in the Philippines every month to study English.[2] Koreans in the Philippines do not have a Korean day school, but are served by seven weekend schools, the first being the ones in Cebu and Antipolo, both founded in 1994. Between 1997 and 2000, five more schools were founded in Davao City, Angeles City, Pasay City, Baguio City, and Cainta; they enroll a total of 383 students.[6][7][8][9][10][11][

The "payong girls", and caddies on golf courses in PI do not want to cater to K's because they are rude and do not give tips, according to several caddies. There was this waiter in one of the country clubs who had to run after a group of K's who failed to pay their breakfast bill because their excuse was they had to tee off.

In Olongapo, the caddies make excuses not to caddy for a K. Most of the time when I ask for a tee time, I would make a point who my playing partner would be. I would rather play with a 89 year lady than with a K. Just expressing my feeeeeeling.

Right across the place where I live was an auditorium, where there was a Korean preacher speaking to some group. Couldn't speak English, so he had an interpreter. Korean preachers can be just as worked up as any preacher, so this Korean chap was going full throttle, and the interpreter was doing his darnest to keep up with him. I went to bed laughing.

Anyway, if you want to buy Auto-Ordnance and Kahr firearms, fellow named Justin Moon is the proprietor...

Koreans here, while they're everywhere, keep to themselves...

Here din sa States, I find the Vietnamese (dateng boat people ) rude. Complicated with the fact most cannot speak english. I also met some who were former refugees in Bataan Refugee Center, some nice and others less desirable.
