3 days of the hardest training i have undergone .. these pictures dont give justice to it .. we were pushed physically and mentally beyond our limits .. i have learned so much in just three days.. being the company commander taught me how to lead other people but most important how to lead myself and stay composed despite any situation .. only 2 hours of sleep for 3 days .. more or less 10 seconds to eat your meal sometimes eating naka-dapa sa putikan .. that teaches you a lot .. patience,gratitude appreciation for even the small stuff .. Being a Philippine Scout Ranger is being a real super hero .. i appreciate your sacrifices men .. Maraming Marami salamat .. And to my Classmates @yvesfloreszeroseven @zackwey @elmomagalona @mrjeromeponce @ry4nj4y @jumaraniscal #anakngsultan the first class of the Soldiers Skillz Orientaion Training .. i have so much respect for you gentlemen .. 🙌🏻 Rangers!!! .. 10 counts!!.. 1 2 3 tion!!..ADVERTISEMENT
The Kapamilya actor completed a Soldiers Skills Orientation Training in Camp Tecson, San Miguel, Bulacan on Friday, which makes him part of the Philippine Army Reserve Force.
Anderson shared his experience on Instagram, saying that the three days of training was “the hardest” he has undergone.
“I have learned so much in just three days. Being the company commander taught me how to lead other people but most importantly how to lead myself and stay composed despite any situation,” Anderson wrote in his post.
“Being a Philippine Scout Ranger is being a real superhero. I appreciate your sacrifices men,” he added.
The other actors who trained with Anderson — as preparation for an upcoming TV series — were Elmo Magalona, Jerome Ponce and Nash Aguas. All actors were conferred the rank of private.
In June, Anderson’s fellow actor Matteo Guidicelli also became an Army reservist after completing his month-long Leadership Development and Scout Ranger Orientation Course, where he bagged special awards.
