    8th Theater Sustainment Command

    MANILA, Philippines – Maj. Gen. Charles R. Hamilton, Commander of the 8th Theater Sustainment Command, based in Fort Shafter, Hawaii visited the Philippines, April 28-30, to seek more training opportunities and subject matter exchanges with the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

    The 8th TSC serves as the military’s senior logistics command for Indo-Pacific Command’s area of responsibility, ensuring sustainment conditions are set for a stable and secure Pacific region.

    Hamilton met with Lt. Gen. Macairog Alberto, Commanding General of the Philippine Army and also had engagements with Maj. Gen. Rizaldo B. Limosa, Philippine Army Vice Commander; Maj. Gen. Byron H. Calimag, Commander for Army Support Command; and Maj. Gen. Pio Q. Dinoso III, the Deputy Chief of Staff for Logistics, J4.

    Hamilton emphasized the need for more dialogue in the topic of sustainment as an opportunity to tap into the talent and knowledge base that resides in both armies.

    “We all know the challenges of the Pacific region and understand that we cannot overcome these challenges alone,” said Hamilton. “Interoperability between our forces is essential to solving regional problems and maintaining stability in the Pacific.”

    Throughout his visit, Hamilton also highlighted the strong and historic bonds shared by the U.S. and the Philippines.

    “These engagements are the foundation to sustaining the strong partnerships and friendships between our countries and armed forces,” said Hamilton. The Philippine and U.S. military collaboration has served as the cornerstone for stability for the Pacific region for decades.”
