The Army’s 1st Infantry Division (ID) activated Headquarters and Headquarters Service Company (HHSC) to fulfill the administrative functions of the former Headquarters and Headquarters Service Battalion (HHSBN ).

The HHSC was officially activated during an activation ceremony on Thursday, April 21, 2022 at 1ID Tactical Operations Command.

The former HHSBN, now known as the 12th Installation Management Battalion (IMB), was recently absorbed into the Philippine Army’s Installation Management Command.

Lt. Col. Elzhoor Jimlah, former head of the division’s Special Services Office (DSSO), was designated as the first commander of the newly activated HHSC.

Jimlah said he was grateful to 1ID management for trusting his ability to lead the company.

“The officers and men of HHSC will spare no effort to ensure that we contribute to the accomplishment of the 1st Infantry Division’s mission,” Jimlah said.

Colonel William George Cordova, Inspector General of 1ID and keynote speaker at the Activation Ceremony, mentioned how the Philippine Army is evolving into a mature and credible organization in the face of endless change.

Cordova said that with the creation of the new unit, the birth pain that comes with it is to be expected.

“The Division can now focus on its operational function, its core competency – warfare – and let the headquarters and headquarters services company take care of the administrative functions,” Cordova said.

“Ensure the well-being of your men while you carry out your mission,” he added. (SunStar Zamboanga)
