Salute to Pinoy Big Brother, Armed Forces of the Philippines
(The Philippine Star) - March 12, 2019 - 12:00am

I was on my way home and got the chance to watch the night time episode of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) aired every night at ABS-CBN network. In that episode, PBB housemates are tasked to undergo basic training under the soldiers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

As series of physical exercises are being given and performed by the housemates both the PBB otso and PBB star hunt, it is obvious that some of them are struggling and find it difficult to do. I realized that if these youth had undergone the ROTC or CAT while they were attending their studies maybe the given tasks were not that hard for them since they had a little background on military training. 

Thus, I appreciated the idea of Big Brother in letting the housemates experience the basic military training from the AFP. I do believe that the training taught the young housemates discipline, physical strength, personal character, integrity, selfworth, leadership teamwork and respect.

Salute to the PBB housemates both the PBB otso and PBB star hunt for surviving the tasks, salute to Big Brother for the idea, and salute to the men and women of the Armed Forces for sharing their military life. – Divine Macapobre,
