Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner, Jr. led the ceremonial wearing of the beret of Civil-Military Operations Regiment (CMOR) officers and enlisted personnel at the regiment’s headquarters in Fort Bonifacio, Metro Manila on September 16, 2022.
CMOR Commander Brig. Gen. Arvin R. Lagamon joined the Army Chief in wearing the new beret together with troops while singing the “CMOR Tan Beret Song.” It can be noted that Lt. Gen. Brawner served as commander of CMOR sometime in 2018.
“I always believed that CMO is the heart of operations. Without it, our efforts in intelligence and combat operations will have no value, because, to triumph, we need to win the hearts and minds of the people,” Lt. Gen. Brawner said in his remarks. “To the Army’s CMO troopers, I urge you to excellently carry on your mandate while also influencing state enemies to return to mainstream society,” the Army Chief added.
According to CMOR, the beret’s flash design represents the five heraldic colors and patterns of the CMO triangle--the golden yellow background signifies the CMO's drive for excellence and genuine commitment to serving the people and securing the land. The ribbon with the Latin words “populorium socius” means popular support that bespeaks the regiment’s mandate while the black borderline represents the hazards inherent to the profession of arms.
