In his speech, Commodore Adaci Jr expressed his gratitude to the Commander in Chief, His Excellency Rodrigo Roa Duterte, Secretary of National Defense, Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, the Chief of Staff, AFP General Gilbert Gapay, Board of Generals, Flag Officer in Command, Philippine Navy, Vice Admiral Giovanni Carlo Bacordo and the Philippine Navy Board of Senior Officer for the confidence of his competence to lead the Philippine Navy's premier operational command, designating him as the Acting Commander of Naval Forces Western Mindanao.

Commodore Adaci Jr also stated that his memorable experiences and greatest excitement in Naval Operations all happened here in Western Mindanao, adding that these tours of duty gave him a humble understanding of the operational tempo in this part of our archipelago where the security landscape in various parts of the AOR is uncertain and volatile that makes the task here at NAVFORWEM challenging.

Commodore Adaci Jr. extended his congratulations to the just relieved Commander, NFWM for the successful command as he assumes a full-time position of higher responsibility as The Deputy Chief of Staff, Armed Forces of the Philippines with the assurance that he will sustain the gains that the command has achieved during Rear Admiral Kagaoan's stint.

UPDATE: Commodore Toribio D Adaci Jr. has been promoted to Rear Admiral in March 2021. A Rear Admiral of the Philippine Navy is equivalent to the rank of Major General (2 Stars) in other uniformed services.
