  Starting this year, soldiers and police will get the partial adjustment in their salary until 2017 and by January 2018, take home pay will be doubled according to Department of Budget and Management (DBM).

This is after the proposal of Duterte administration for “substantial” increases in PNP and AFP allocations as part of the drive against crime, illegal drugs, and terrorism.
The President also vowed to  prioritize the welfare of the military in the ongoing campaign against terrorism and insurgency in the country.

At least 15 army soldiers were killed while many are wounded in the gun battle between Philippine Army and Abu Sayyaf in Patikul, Sulu lately.

In his visit to the wake of the slain soldiers, Duterte announced that except the salary increase, soldiers, and their families will also be covered by administration program from medical, health, social services, and education benefits for the soldiers and their families.

This includes:

-P250,000 for every soldier who dies in action during his term from Office of the President
