BGen Quidilla is new Bicol Army Chief

PILI, Camarines Sur—Brigadier General Ferdinand F. Quidilla was installed as the new Commander of the 9th Infantry Division in a Change of Command Ceremony earlier today (October 29) at Camp Elias Angeles here. He replaced Major General Yerson E. Depayso who is retiring from military service.

The Change of Command and Retirement Ceremony was presided by the Commanding General of the Philippine Army Lieutenant General Eduardo M. Año. AFP Southern Luzon Command Chief Lieutenant General Ricardo R. Visaya and 2nd Infantry Division Commander Major General Romeo G. Gan were also present to witness the ceremony.

Prior to his current position, BGen Quidilla was the Assistant Division Commander of the 2nd Infantry Division in Tanay, Rizal.

BGen Quidilla was born in Banga, South Cotabato on April 22, 1961. Generals Año, Visaya and Gan and Quidilla were classmates at the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1983.

"I am very optimistic that BGen Quidilla will continue the efforts of his predecessor, Major General Depayso, in the attainment of a more peaceful Bicol Region," said SOLCOM Chief LtGen Visaya.

He said Quidilla's expertise in counter insurgency will infuse new approaches in AFP's IPSP "Bayanihan" in Bicol Region.
