Brigadier General Alex DC Luna was named the new Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, J2 in a Change of Chief of Office Ceremony presided by The Deputy Chief of Staff, AFP Rear Admiral Erick A Kagaoan on October 16 at the GHQ Building, here.

The position was previously held by Major General Greg T Almerol who will now fully serve as the Commander of the 2nd Infantry Division in Tanay, Rizal.

Prior to his appointment as Deputy Chief for Intelligence, BGen. Luna served as the Commander of the Joint Task Force – NCR (JTF-NCR). In his stint as JTF Commander, he led his troops in COVID-19 response efforts while continuing counterinsurgency activities.

BGen. Luna was also assigned in Eastern Samar as Commander of the 801st Brigade and Co-Chairman of E-CLIP Committee. His expertise in the field of intelligence operations came from his experiences in the Army Intelligence Regiment, including his designation as Army Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, G2.

“I urge you to sustain the progress started by your predecessors and perform your tasks with utmost commitment and dedication. We trust in your abilities and we look forward to more accomplishments under your helmsmanship,” RAdm Kagaoan told BGen. Luna.

The Deputy Chief of Staff also commended the outgoing Chief for Intelligence, MGen. Almerol for his contributions. “MGen. Almerol is well-known for his expertise, competency, and high sense of responsibility. During his stint, MGen. Almerol has broadened the security perspective of the AFP by enhancing the intelligence operations that address the nation's stability against various threats despite the challenges brought by the pandemic,” said RAdm Kagaoan.

MGen Almerol is a member of Philippine Military Class of 1989. Enemy forces decreased by 2,234 members and supporters through 148 intelligence projects and 284 case operations that MGen. Almerol initiated.

“Let us all commit to fully understanding what we do and how we do it. Capitalize on our strengths and improve on our weaknesses as we continuously face the challenges ahead,” RAdm Kagaoan said in closing.
