For his outstanding services at sea which greatly contributed to the country’s security for the past five years, Philippine Navy (PN) public affairs office chief Capt. Lued Lincuna was named as the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Cavalier Awardee for Naval Operations Saturday.
The awarding took place during the annual PMA Alumni Homecoming activity at Fort Del Pilar, Baguio City.
Lincuna is a member of PMA Class 1993 and his citation read:
“During the last five years, Lincuna served as Commanding Officer of three commissioned PN vessels BRP Apolinario Mabini (PS-36); BRP Salvador Abcede (PG-114); and BRP Felix Apolinario (PG-395); and as commander of various Naval Task Groups. He frequently spent his sea-duty tour in the operational areas particularly in Naval Forces Western Mindanao, Naval Forces Eastern Mindanao and Naval Forces West.”
“He was Commander, Naval Task Group (CNTG) Mariqui, that extensively conducted Naval Gun Fire Support and maritime interdiction operations during the ‘Zamboanga Siege’ (September 2013) and he spearheaded his unit to vigilantly scour the vast stretch of Philippine-Malaysia border during the Sabah Crisis (in February 2013) in order to deter illegal ingress and negate unlawful egress of notorious groups. In Naval Forces West AOR, he was CNTG Malampaya that provided a round-the-clock security to the Malampaya Natural Gas-To-Power Project and its established exclusion zone, and also attended to the requirements of Sea Areas 3, 4, and 5 in the West Philippine Sea during the ‘Ayungin Crisis’ (February 2014) against foreign intrusion.”
