The 1st Infantry (Tabak) Division received three wheelchairs from Altama during the flag raising ceremony held here Monday, March 8, 2021.
Maj. Gen. Gene M. Ponio ceremonially accepted the wheelchairs and officially handed them over to the station hospital.

“This act of generosity will further inspire us to do our best knowing that our personal sacrifices are not left unnoticed but are instead appreciated by others”, added Maj. Gen. Ponio.
In the same occasion, two newly assigned officers were welcomed. Tabak patches were also pinned in their uniform as an acceptance gesture by the unit.
