Toledo Soldier Tops Guyana Training Course

Francisco Choc

A B.D.F. soldier is making a name for himself in Guyana. Officer Cadet Francisco Choc was awarded best overall trainee in the Guyana Defence Force standards officers’ course.  Choc also received the Sword of Honour and Best in Fitness and Military Knowledge. The Standard Military Officers Course is an intensive training programme of leadership and command methods in military skills and tactics, physical fitness, military law and national policy training for new army officers in Guyana and other Caribbean countries.  Choc, who comes from Dolores Village in Toledo, was also joined in the graduation ceremony on Wednesday by fellow B.D.F. soldier Caleb Rodriguez. The two Belizeans graduated with ten other officers from the Caribbean. Both Choc and Rodriguez will now be commissioned as Second Lieutenants into the B.D.F.
