This was highlighted by the Commanding Officer for the 1RPIR, Lt. Colonel Boniface Aruma, who told media that the battalion will be the main joint task force group that will provide security for APEC.
Aruma says his troops have already embarked on conventional operations training, which commenced last month and will finish on the 15th of December.
“The personnel are out on field going through conventional operations which is the basic fundamental of war fighting.
“It’s living in the jungle, operating in the jungle and fighting the war in the jungle,” he says.
