MANILA, Philippines – Kapamilya actor Gerald Anderson revealed that their recent scout ranger training was supposed to be two weeks but it was just compressed into three days, making it more difficult.

In an interview with the media during the Skechers Performance Run 2019, Gerald said he’s proud of what he, together with Jerome Ponce, Nash Aguas and Yves Flores and Elmo Magalona have accomplished.

“Ang ating scout rangers ay ang the best jungle fighter sa buong Asia tapos na-undergo namin, kahit sabihin nating three days lang, dapat two weeks eh ginawa nila yung training in the span of three days, kinompress so very intense. Siguro Masaya na kami kung nakadalawang oras kami ng tulog sa tatlong araw na yon,” Gerald said. 

The military training was part of the exercise as being part of the upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye “A Soldier’s Heart” where they are now an army reservist.

“Lahat ng boys sa “A Soldier’s Heat” dumaan sa Soldier’s Skills Orientation Training. Sobrang nakakaproud yung mga sundalo natin dahil nakita, naramdaman at na-witness namin yung ginagawa nila para sa atin,” Gerald said. 

Gerald added that being in the training makes him appreciate soldiers on their sacrifice for the country.

“Hindi kami nakakakain sa maayos na kainan talaga. Minsan 10 seconds lang binibigay sa amin. It makes you appreciate yung mga ibang bagay, yung mga problema mo sa buhay parang nakakahiya na nagrereklamo ako sa ganitong klaseng sitwastyon o problema eh ito yung pinagdadaanan ng maraming tao na mas malalim yung ginagawa nila,” he said.
