Minors in Mt. Province warned against fake mandatory military training invitation

Through the Provincial Government of Mountain Province Facebook page, the government released a text message brought to their attention which summons students for a ‘Mandatory Military Service’ training which is said to start on Sunday.

Additionally, the text message also invites these ‘chosen’ students to undergo the said training at the Provincial Plaza on January 29.

The Mountain Province Provincial Government then discredits the circulating text message, saying that if ever the military and the police recruit students for military service, the information will be communicated through formal letters addressed to school authorities for proper dissemination and guidance.
