Soldiers are not only defenders of the community. They are ambassadors of goodwill, too.

As narrated by Col. Jon Aying, commanding officer of 303rd Infantry Brigade in Negros Occidental, the Bayanihan Team of soldiers patrol the hinterlands to promote peace and development. Winning the peace is not by bullets but through better community relations.

Upon arrival in the hinterland areas, the Bayanihan Team coordinates with the barangay officials and sitio leaders, whom they present their intention of conducting activities for the benefit of the community. Before the conduct of any activity, they survey the area to determine the density population, livelihood of the people; identify the needs of people. But, during their house to house survey, they give their pasalubong to the family – few kilos of rice, sometimes with sardines if they have the budget. In the course of conversation with the people, they asked what are their needs and problems that affect them most.
