Cordillera - A proud Igorot cop from Mt. Province was awarded Certificate of Merit for obtaining the highest rating in Physical Fitness conducted by the Special Forces Regiment (Airborne) (SFR-A) Philippine Army.

Pat. Jhonel F. Eloy obtained an average rating of 95.67 percent besting the 108 students who enrolled in Special Forces Combat Qualification Course (SFCQC)  Class 18 - 2021.

Pat. Eloy received the certificate during a ceremony on January 17, 2022 at the Philippine Army's Special Forces Regiment (Airborne) Headquarter in Fort Ramon Magsaysay, Palayan City, Nueva Ecija.

The Special Forces Regiment (Airborne) is a special forces unit of the Philippine Army. The unit is based on and continually trains with its American counterpart, the U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets).

The regiment was established in the 1960s by then Captain Fidel V. Ramos PA (INF) (first commanding officer of the SFR-A), primarily trained in both unconventional warfare operations and psychological warfare operations. 

Like the Scout Rangers, members of the Special Forces Regiment of the Philippine Army are also highly trained in counter-insurgency operations. 

Upon assignment to the Special Forces, soldiers are made to undergo the Basic Airborne Course. They, later-on, undergo the Special Forces Operations Course - an eight-month course that equips each SF soldier in the basics of Special Forces and unconventional warfare operations. Each member of the SF 

Regiment may opt to undergo specialty courses as well after finishing the Special Forces basic course. These include, but is not limited to, training in demolitions and bomb disposal (EOD), psychological warfare operations (PSYOPS), riverine operations including combat diving, intelligence operations, weapons, medics, as well as VIP security training in preparation for reassignment with the Presidential Security Group.
