(From L to R) PSTC-Tarlac Provincial Director Ms. Karen Y. Dañez, DOST 3 RD Dr. Julius Caesar V. Sicat, Major General Cornelio H. Valencia, Jr. and Major Joven L. Caycong lead the ribbon cutting ceremonies of the newly established bakery facilities.
Army men and books is not an uncommon sight, but army men and baking? It takes one a while to get it into one’s head the vision of brawny-armed and muscle toned biceps wielding a rolling pin and mashing bread flour.
But for some of our men in uniform at the Philippine Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) at Camp O’Donnell, in Capas, Tarlac, this might soon be a “new normal.”
This, after the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) office in Central Luzon turned over a set of bakery equipment to the camp headed by Major General Cornelio H. Valencia, Jr. The agency provided the equipment under its Grants-in-Aid (GIA) program to enable TRADOC to produce veggie breads that could enhance the nutrition of men in uniform.
