MANILA — The Army Support Command (ASCOM) received 21 newly-completed facilities during a turnover ceremony led by Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) Chairman Delfin N. Lorenzana and Acting Army Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Jose Eriel M. Niembra, who represented Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner, Jr., at Camp Servillano Aquino, Tarlac City on November 30, 2022.

Maj. Gen. Niembra said relocating and constructing the modern ASCOM facilities at a strategic location in Camp Servillano Aquino will bolster the unit’s capability to provide logistical support to ground forces.

The ASCOM facilities project is part of the 2017 memorandum of agreement signed by BCDA and DND for the relocation of Army facilities from an 11.5-hectare portion of Fort Bonifacio to Camp Servillano Aquino, the headquarters of the AFP Northern Luzon Command.

The new facilities are expected to provide a better logistics, storage, and management hub for ASCOM which is tasked to provide firepower, transportation, organizational, and maintenance equipment support to Philippine Army Major Units. (ai/mtvn)
