Kapamilya actress Arci Muñoz is now sergeant of Philippine Air Force Reserve (PAFR) Command after completing military training.
On its official Facebook page, PAFR announced Arci’s graduation this past Sunday after completing the Basic Citizen Military Training held at the Gaerlan Auditorium, HAFRC, Clark Air Base in Pampanga.
“Ms. Arci Muñoz is now Sgt Arci Muñoz PAFR! Sgt Ramona Cecilia D Muñoz PAFR completed the Basic Citizen Military Training on 25 October 2020 at Gaerlan Auditorium, HAFRC, Clark Air Base, Pampanga. Sgt Muñoz PAFR, under the supervision of 1st Air Reserve Center, learned the basic knowledge and skills of soldiery,” it said.
“For thirty training days, she underwent HADR training, marksmanship training, Obstacle Course, Field Training Exercise (FTX), and other activities that prepared her for her future roles as a Reservist of the Philippine Air Force,” it added.

Arci started training as a reservist of the Philippine Air Force last June, and almost four months later, she overcame all the challenges and became a sergeant.
Actor and Arci’s friend JM de Guzman also enlisted, but it was unsure if JM has completed the Basic Citizen Military Training.
“Maligayang Araw ng Kasarinlan, mahal kong Pilipinas! Ngayon araw din ang aking unang pisikal na pagsasanay bilang kaunaunahang babae sa aking henerasyon at propesyon na sumasailalim sa [Philippine Air Force] reservist BCMT – Basic Citizen Military Training,” Arci Muñoz said.
