Matteo Guidicelli generously revealed his real reason why he joined the Armed Forces of the Philippines as a reservist.
Along with it were the reaction of his parents and his sweetheart, who is Sarah Geronimo, to his decision.
He disclosed all of this during his speech at the closing ceremony of the National Cadet Corps of the Philippines Summer Encampment Training under the Junior High School Commandants Association of the Philippines (JHSCAP).
According to him, his parents and Sarah asked him why he decided to join.
"Yung girlfriend ko, yung mga magulang ko sabi nila ‘Bakit ka sasali ng Army? Mag-gi-giyera ka ba?”' He recalled.
“Ngayon they understood na kapag nasa reserve ka or nasa Army ka, hindi naman ibig sabihin mag-gi-giyera ka, marami kang mga pwedeng gawin.”
Prior to this revelation, he shared his main reason why he joined the Army, and that is because of his love for the Philippines.
"I just joined the reserve force just two weeks ago. Daming tao nagsasabi, nagtatanong sa’kin, ‘Bakit ka mag-re-reserve force, bakit ka mag-a-Army?' Sabi ko, ‘Bakit hindi? Pinoy ako diba?’”
In a previous report by KAMI, Matteo received a traffic violation ticket via mail from the MMDA which he appreciated more than being upset.
