I've visited Baguio for several times and even gone to this place for the 3rd time. But this time is really different because of my passion for writing that just started just this year, sharing some informations, helpful tips and even guided itineraries. I present The Philippine Military Academy (PMA), boast of a long and illustious history of preparing only the best Filipino men and maybe in future even women for military service. This academy also serves for more than 100 years to be the training ground of our future officers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, that can be found in Baguio City.

|The Philippine Military Academy|
Here is a Brief History, Traditions and General Information about PMA:
Source is from PMA site......Philippine Military Academy began on October 25, 1898 with the establishment of the Academia Militar in Malolos, Bulacan by virtue of a decree issued by the first president of the young Philippine Republic, General Emilio Aguinaldo. Graduates were awarded regular commission in the armed forces. Its existence was short-lived, barely four months old, up to 20 January 1899, when hostilities between the Americans and Filipinos erupted.

Its pre-war technically-oriented curriculum, patterned after that of the US Military Academy at West Point, was restored. Socio-humanistic courses were added In the 1960s, as the curriculum underwent major changes, and strengthened to balance the techno-scientific disciplines, with a view towards providing a well-rounded education relevant to the needs of a growing Armed Forces of the Philippines.
