Hear ye! Hear ye! Mark your calendar on March 22, 2012. This will be the date that an underground war tunnel in Fort Bonifacio will be reopened to tourism as a tribute to the many unsung heroes in the military.
Upon the initiative of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) the underground war tunnel in Fort Bonifacio will be transform into a heritage site to honor the sacrifices of the country’s long line of soldiers.
The underground passageway is located at the eastern area of what is now called Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City, which used to be part of the sprawling Army base.
The tunnel used to be the main attraction of the old Philippine Army museum and library, which have since been relocated with the conversion of a sizable portion of the military camp into a business and residential district.
The tunnel’s reopening was timely since the Philippine Army would be celebrating its 115th founding anniversary on March 22.
