Camarines Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. congratulates uncle after his son was named Navy chief
The son’s achievement is also the father’s honor.
Camarines Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. visited his uncle Victorino “Tata Bitong” Bordado to congratulate him after his son Adeluis was named to the Philippine Navy’s top post.
The lawmaker said his uncle never expected his son to become Navy chief, and Adeluis himself said he had only aspired to be the superintendent of the Philippine Military Academy to honor his late mother Herminia Santelices Bordado, who had been a long time teacher.
But it looks like greater things were in store for Adeluis as he is now commanding the country’s naval force.
His success makes the family proud!
“FATHER OF THE PHILIPPINE NAVY’S TOP GUN: I congratulated Victorino “Tata Bitong” Bordado– the father of the new Philippine Navy chief. A former municipal postmaster of Calabanga, Tata Bitong (the youngest brother of my father Gabriel) never expected his son to get the navy’s top post. Rear Admiral Adeluis Bordado himself admitted that he just aspired to be the superintendent of his alma mater, the Philippine Military Academy, in order to honor his late mother Herminia Santelices Bordado who was a long-time teacher (she was, in fact, my Grade 2 mentor) at the Calabanga Central Division Pilot School,” Bordado posted.
