Matteo Guidicelli, Erwan Heussaff, and Nico Bolzico were inducted recently into the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary (PCGA).
In an Instagram post of Jacques Branellec, Jewelmer Group President and CEO, she congratulated the newly inducted officers of the “Philippines Coast Guard Auxiliary 408 squadron.”
“It was an honor to welcome my brothers to help with the mission of the PCGA to aid in marine environmental protection, marine search and rescue, and youth environmental education,” she wrote.
Jacques then welcomed aboard the three with the military rank, Lieutenant Commander.
Nico also shared the good news on Instagram. He said it is an honor to be part of PCGA upon Jacques’ recommendation.
“The PCGA is a voluntary non-government and non-political organization whose members adhere to the Philippines Coast Guard,” Nico wrote. He shared their responsibilities as members cover “maritime safety, maritime search and rescue, marine environment protection, and youth environmental education.”
“The PCGA is a way of giving back to this beautiful country that gave me and keeps giving me so much! You can all do your part in protecting the Philippines greatest resource which is our Youth and our environment! The challenge is not to be part of the PCGA, the challenge is what you do after!” his post read.
On their website, PCGA describes itself as “service-oriented, uniformed volunteer organization established in 1972 by the Philippine Coast Guard.”
“The PCGA is committed to support and assist the PCG in the promotion of safety of life and property at sea, the protection of the marine environment and its resources, the conduct of maritime search and rescue, the maintenance of aids to navigation, recreational safety and such other activities that enhance maritime community relations which include civic action and youth development through the National Service Training Program (NSTP), and other related activities.”
