AFP Chief of Staff General Gilbert Gapay led the donning of ranks to newly-promoted Major General Romeo Brawner Jr. and Marine Brigadier General Eric Nicanor.

General Gapay extended his congratulations to the newly promoted officers and reminded them of the responsibilities associated with their new rank.

"It is with immense pride and honor that I express my warmest congratulations to our honorees, for their achievements have pushed them up the military's top leadership and have been deemed worthy to receive these stars that represent higher expectations and standards of service and leadership," General Gapay said.

"As you receive heavier responsibilities, I urge and challenge you to sustain this momentum as this will be crucial in fulfilling our operational missions. Once again, I extend my congratulations to these two valiant military officers on their well-deserved promotion," the AFP Chief added.

Brawner is the son of the late Court of Appeals presiding justice and Comelec commissioner, Romeo Brawner, Sr. The newly-promoted officer is also the nephew of retired B/Gen. Felix Brawner, Jr., former commander of the Scout Ranger and PMA Class of 1957 topnotcher.

Major General Brawner recently assumed as the first Deputy Chief of Staff for Financial Management, J10, an office which was newly activated last December 2020.
