    Philippine Military Academy

    After graduating from secondary level, those who aspire to serve the local government of the Philippines, either men or women, can pursue to enter the military but has to undergo the extensive selection process at the Philippine Military Academy. It is situated in Fort Gegorio del Pilar on Loakan Road.

    I once witnessed the graduation ceremony on the field. The cadets boastfully and with might showed their military drill then all of a sudden surprised the audience as they performed the Macarena dance. Looking at them dance, from being stiff who then transformed to graceful and flexible dancers on every beat of the music was a wonderful sight to see.

    A few steps along the way from the entrance, you have the chance to explore the place with so much enthusiasm. A museum can be found that exhibits remnants of weapons, tankers, aircraft and other war-related artifacts. It also tells the history and the contributions of past key men and women who have served the institution.
