Soldiers painted their faces for a military parade to honor outgoing Philippine President Benigno Aquino III in June 2016. The parade took place a few days before Aquino left office to make way for incoming President-elect Rodrigo Duterte. During the ceremony at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City, top military leaders and other dignitaries honored Aquino, who is credited with jump-starting the modernization of the Philippine military.
