Unity in Action: AFP and PNP Leaders Endorse Ariel Querubin's Senate Bid

Retired Colonel Ariel Querubin, a decorated hero who nearly lost his life in service to his country, bears the scars of countless battles. His resilience and dedication to the Philippines have prepared him for a new mission: building a stronger nation. In the upcoming election, Querubin is running for the Senate with one of his platforms focused on providing free hospitalization for indigent senior citizens. His campaign is supported by fellow generals and officers who believe in his vision and leadership, ready to help him champion the cause of the Filipino people.

In an impressive display of unity, former Chiefs of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) from the Arroyo, Aquino, Duterte, and Marcos administrations, along with nearly two thousand ex-generals, officers, and personnel, have formally endorsed Ariel Querubin's Senate candidacy on July 8 at Club Filipino.

"Ariel Querubin, a retired colonel and the most decorated soldier in Philippine history, is widely recognized for his extraordinary bravery and unwavering dedication to the country," the statement read. As a recipient of the Medal of Valor, the highest military honor for exceptional courage and self-sacrifice, Querubin's illustrious military career and commitment to public service distinguish him as a candidate capable of bridging diverse political perspectives and fostering unity.

During his speech, Querubin acknowledged the historical significance of Club Filipino, a site of many transformative events in the nation's history. The retired colonel reflected on the diverse political journeys of those present, mentioning key events such as Martial Law, the EDSA revolutions, various coups, and the presidencies from Marcos to "Truth be told, all of us here stood on different sides in many pivotal moments of our nation's history," Querubin noted.

"And yet, we gather here today not as allies of the many political factions but as brothers in arms who have once and always will put our lives for our children, families, and fellow Filipinos. We stand united in our service to the Philippines, in our service to God."

Querubin accepted the challenge to serve the nation again by running for the Senate in 2025, highlighting the critical need to address corruption, poverty, and inflation. The retired colonel also emphasized the urgency of securing the country's sovereignty against internal and external threats.

"We find ourselves at a crossroads," Querubin stated. "The bullying in the West Philippine Sea threatens our sovereignty, while the proliferation of illegal POGOs brings social issues that affect our communities. And the call for the modernization of our military to secure our nation and uphold our sovereignty with the respect it deserves - is nothing short of urgent and vital for our survival as a free nation."

Querubin also underscored the need to strengthen the Filipino's collective spirit of patriotism and sacrifice.

"My vision is a nation of heroes. Isang bayang handang magsakripisyo at kayang ipaglaban ang Pilipino mula sa mga mang-aapi," he concluded.
