CAMP SANG-AN, ZDS – The former 10th Infantry Battalion (10IB) commander is the new Assistant Chief of Staff for Personnel of 1st Infantry Division (1ID) after the change of chief of office ceremony held at the Division Conference Room Friday, September 10.
Lt. Col. Ray C. Tiongson took over the position from Lt. Col. Angestal L. Angeles II, now the commanding officer of 10IB.
Tiongson expressed his gratitude to the 1ID leadership for allowing him to lead the 10IB and serve the provinces of Misamis Occidental, Zamboanga del Sur, and Zamboanga del Norte. Being designated as the new Assistant Chief of Staff for Personnel, G1, is another challenge that Tiongson willingly accepted.

Almagro, Chief of Staff, 1ID, and the presiding officer during the ceremony, challenged the newly installed Personnel Officer to continue the outstanding performance of the office. Almagro also commended the outgoing chief for his professionalism and dedication in leading the office.
“I already have worked with both of our outgoing and incoming. With their skills and capabilities, I am convinced that the two officers will steer the office and the unit in the right direction and contribute to the accomplishment of the 1ID’s mission,” Almagro said.
“On behalf of the commander of 1ID, I would like to congratulate the incoming Assistant Chief of Staff for Personnel, G1, and I hope that we continuously do great in our tasks,” he added.
