Vice President Leni Robredo has congratulated one of her aide-de-camps, Lt. Danilo Vidad of the Philippine Navy, who recently got promoted as Lieutenant Commander, which is equivalent to the rank of major in the Philippine Army.

“Amidst the death and sickness of people dear to us, we celebrated a few milestones in the office this week,” she said in a recent Facebook post.

“This week, I had the honor of pinning his (Vidal) new rank. I can definitely say he is a major asset of the AFP and one of the officers who will make a mark in our country’s future,” Robredo added.

Danny, as she calls Vidad, “is one of our prized officers at the VPSD (Vice President Security Detail),” having been one of Robredo’s aide-de-camps since her first day in office.

He graduated Cum Laude from the Philippine Military Academy and took a year off to go to London as a Chevening scholar.

After he finished the course, he rejoined the Office of the Vice President (OVP) as a security officer.
