01 June 2017, PVAOCovered Court, Camp Aguinaldo – The Armed Forces and Police Savings and Loan Association, Inc. (AFPSLAI) donated a new E-Jeep to the Philippine Veterans Affairs (PVAO), making this the third E-Jeep that will serve the transportation needs of the veterans within Camp Aguinaldo.
In a turn-over and blessing ceremony, PVAO Administrator Ernesto G. Carolina recounted how he first saw an E-Jeep transporting veterans around the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani (LNMB) in Taguig City during the Philippine Veterans Week celebration. Realizing how this could provide comfort and convenience for the elderly veterans who need to go around Camp Aguinaldo when they file for their pension claims, the Administrator sought the support of PVAO’s partner financial institutions.
LtGen. Virgilio Domingo AFP (Ret), Chairman and President of AFPSLAI, welcomed this suggestion and emphasized that their donation is one way of expressing their gratitude to PVAO, which pensioners are among AFPSLAI’s members. AFPSLAI is one of the accredited financial institutions and major partners of PVAO in servicing the veterans.
Last month, Composite Wings Savings and Loans Association,Inc. (CWSLAI) and Air Materiel Wings Savings and Loans Association, Inc.(AMWSLAI) each donated a similar E-Jeep.
