Lt. Gen. Sobejana and his command staff were welcomed by Joint Task Force Basilan commander Brig. Gen. Fernando Reyeg and Joint Task Force Zamboanga commander Col. Antonio John Divinagracia, respectively.

During the “Talk to Troops”, Lt. Gen. Sobejana emphasized that troops should have the passion to work and serve rather than to be served.
“Being a soldier requires a lot of sacrifices but then all those things can be overcome if we are passionate with what we are doing,” Lt. Gen. Sobejana said.
“Stay motivated, stay happy, and stay passionate,” he added.
He also checked on the readiness and morale of the troops.
