PANGASINAN, Aug 5 (PIA) – Even for a fleeting moment, Pangasinenses took time to welcome the country’s second warship yesterday as it sailed on Bolinao shores before docking at the Subic Bay Freeport for the arrival ceremony
The Philippine Navy’s newly acquired 2nd High Endurance Cutter named Barko ng Republika ng Pilipinas (BRP) Commodore Ramon Alcaraz with a bow number PF16 passed by the Bolinao shores after a long voyage from Charleston South Carolina.
Fisher folks from the towns of Sual and Bolinao, local government officials, students and local communities whom the ship will be dedicated to serve, were happy to witness the sail past of the BRP Alcaraz.

BRP Alcaraz officially entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility in the early morning of August 2 in the waters adjacent to Casiguran, Aurora.
Commander Levi Carane of the Philippine Naval Forces in North Luzon, said the warship, which arrived at Alava Pier of Subic Bay Freeport Zone today, was officially welcomed with a formal ceremony at 9 a.m. His Excellency Benigno S. Aquino III was the Guest of Honor .
Part of the ceremony will be the recognition of the laudable efforts of the 88 sailors who were instrumental for her safe and successful maiden voyage to the Philippines, he said.
The warship was named after Navy war veteran Ramon Alcaraz who was a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1940. He showed his gallantry in battle when he shot down three low-flying Japanese planes off Bataan in January 17, 1942. (MCA/VHS/PIA-1Pangasinan
