Major Gen. Juvymax Uy, a Negrense, is back in Mindanao as commander of the Army’s 6th Infantry Division.
Uy, a native of Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, was installed yesterday as 6th Infantry “Kampilan” Division commander at Camp Brig. Gen. Gonzalo Siongco in Maguindanao by Army chief, Lt. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, who is also a Negrense.
Sobejana used to be the 6ID commander, with Uy as deputy commander.
Uy served as the internal auditor of the Armed Forces of the Philippines before his assignment.
He is a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1989.
He had been also assigned in Negros during the height of internal security operations in the early 1990s.
Sobejana, who is a native of Zamboanguita, Negros Oriental, said in a statement that “the Kampilan Division, as the tribal sword, does not only represent strength, it epitomizes the Philippine Army”.
“Its victories testify to a great leadership tradition of which I am proud to have been part of,” Sobejana said.*
