Revitalizing the Philippine Navy

Published on Oct 1, 2002

The Philippine Navy had been around for more than a century. It had played significantroles through our nation’s history, from the gallant amphibious operation by the insurgent navyduring the Philippine Revolution (Zulueta 1998, p.20) to the support missions during the KoreanWar and up to the successful anti-piracy and anti-smuggling operations in the 1950’s which led tothe destruction of the illegal operations network of the notorious pirate, Kamlon (Giagonia 1947,p.247-272). But since then, the Navy had deteriorated to such depths that it had become sociallyirrelevant to the country’s development.Hence, the need for policy reforms that would attempt to transform this portrait of sicklyNavy who is forever tied to the docks of antiquity and irrelevance to one that is ever sailingthrough the seas of modernity and an active partner to our country’s progress.In going about the discussion, some relevant information about the organization wouldbe laid down to provide the necessary backdrop for the main topic of the paper.
