    FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila – Seventeen soldier amputees each receive their prostheses procured through funds provided by the Office of the President on Friday, Mar. 28, 2019.

    Ottobock Philippines Managing Director Peter Goldberg turned over the prostheses to the soldier amputees in a simple ceremony held at Joy Nostalg Hotel and Suites
    Manila which was also attended by Lt. Gen. Macairog S. Alberto, the Army Commanding General.
