In line with the International Women’s Month, Dr. Luis M. Sorolla, Jr., as the keynote speaker, stressed the role of women in the society. “If men are considered rulers, women are the ones rocking their cradles. They also represent strength, wisdom, patience and love that can change men.”
According to history, when men performed their duty in military, women played a big role. They served as inspiration, and at the same time they performed the office tasks left by those who went to battlefield. And this role has expanded even up to the battlefield where a lot of women in our society are now doing men’s job including that of those in uniform.
Meanwhile, Dr. Sorolla also emphasized that the training together with the penalties in ROTC are all important to hone each one for a much bigger responsibilities as future leaders of the society. The discipline one gets in ROTC is something worth keeping. He made himself an example because according to him, he was able to experience almost all penalties during his time but it turned out to be a positive factor that helped him become what he is now.
The ROTC group Of WVCST was highly applauded for its discipline and performance during the said event. Also, it garnered a total score of 90.848 points during the Tactical Inspection held on February 26, 2014.
