CAMP GEN MATEO CAPINPIN, Tanay, Rizal The 2nd Infantry (Jungle Fighter) Division gave Heroes’ Welcome to 80th Infantry (Steadfast) Battalion as it returned back to the Command on March 02, 2015 after forming part of the 7th Philippine Contingents to Golan Heights as peacekeepers and security force during the Papal Visit.

The said Heroes’ welcome which started at 8 o’clock in the morning includes the ceremonial handshaking and awarding of Military Merit Medals. It was attended by all Jungle Fighters Officers, Enlisted Personnel and Civilian Employees headed by BGen Romeo G Gan AFP, Commander, 2ID, PA.
