Cordillera - LTC Remigo A Dulatre GSC (INF) PA, the former Battalion Commander of 86th Infantry (Higlander) Battalion, 5lD, PA based in Jones, Isabela covering the provinces of Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya and Southern Isabela, was adjudged as the Best Battalion 2018. 

He received the award  of DSSP KAPAYAPAAN given by Gen. Benjamin Madrigal, Jr. AFP, the former Chief of Staff, AFP at GHO, CGEA.

He is also an awardee of the Meritorious Achievement Medal award and was awarded to him by Gen. Madrigal at Headquarters Northern Luzon Command last 2019 for the successful dismantling of Southern Front Committee ng Komiting Rehiyon-Cagayan Valley (SFC, KR-CV).

The successful dismantling of the Guerrilla front was the first in 5lD which caused the insignificance of the CPP-NPA-NDF and forced their remnants to abandon their former lairs in the municipality of Jones, Echague, San Guillermo, San Agustin and Angadanan or the JESSA Complex.

As a result, the said municipalities are benefiting from the successful campaign against the insurgents. This can be attested by the entry of development and progress in the area.

With this achievement, Isabela is now on its normalcy compared to the previous security situations.

The emphasis on EO 70 or the Whole of Nation approach is on the right track of its implementations through the common goal of Ending the Local Armed Conflict (ELCAC) and the stakeholders' engagements.

LTC Dulatre is a native of Rizal, Kalinga and presently the Assistant Chief of Staff for Civil Military Operations, G7 of the 5th Infantry Division, PA based at Camp Melchor F Dela Cruz, Upi, Gamu, Isabela.

Consequently, the award by the Battalion also made him the Best Battalion Commander 2018 for NOLCOM.
