Citizen Armed Force Geographical Unit (CAFGU) Filipino militiamen participate in combat exercise with Army regulars. March 2022
CAFGU is an auxiliary force that works alongside the Armed Forces of the Philippines in securing far flung communities from local insurgents and rebels. They typically recruit men from the surrounding area, and are given older equipment such as M1 Garands, and M14 Battle Rifles.
They never work independently, and are often attached as additional manpower to regular Armed Forces of the Philippines Army units. The man in the center with the M16 is likely their acting squad leader or instructor for the exercise, an NCO from the Army.
Defense Secretary Delfin N. Lorenzana and Philippine Air Force (PAF) Commanding General LtGen Connor Anthony Canlas Sr led the Joint Acceptance, Turn Over, and Blessing Ceremony of two Turkish made T-129 ATAK Helicopters at Villamor Air Base, Pasay City. Turkish Defence İndustry Minister also took part.
