Philippine Military Academy

When we had our recent vacation in Baguio City, we did not miss the opportunity to visit the Philippine Military Academy in Fort Gregorio del Pilar. It is the premier military institution of the country, where the future officers of the Armed Forces of Philippines are educated and trained. Its mission:
"To instruct, train, and develop the cadets so that they will possess the character, the broad and basic military skills and the education essential to the pursuit of a progressive military career."
It is sad to note though that some products of the academy are disgrace to the academy and the military, in particular, and to the Filipino people, in general.

Here are some pictures taken inside the academy:
