The team organized a 3-day forum on Combined Arms Operations at El Cielito Hotel, Sta. Rosa, Laguna last 13-15 December 2017. The ORC invited commanders and staff officers who were deployed during the battle of Marawi. The officers shared their experiences in Marawi particularly on the topic of planning, decision making, and execution of operation. They also di scussed the best practices, innovations, challenges and cooperation with other Army units which led to the liberation of Marawi from the ISIS-Maute terrorist group. This event became a good source of knowledge for Researchers because they had the chance to ask questions about the operations. The shared information in the forum was significant to the writing process of the researchers.
