Matteo Guidicelli is officially a Philippine Army 2nd Lieutenant, four months after he joined the Philippine Army as a reservist.
The actor attended the donning of the ranks ceremony today, August 20, at the Philippine Army headquarters in Taguig. In a report by ABS-CBN News, President Rodrigo Duterte has already signed Matteo's papers, which officially marks his moving up from his probationary period to 2nd Lieutenant.
Now that he's already a 2nd Lieutenant, Matteo said that he'll be more active in visiting communities around the country.
Present during the ceremony was Matteo's girlfriend Sarah Geronimo, who had the honor of assisting Matteo with his pin.
It was in April when Matteo joined the Army as a reservist. He underwent a 30-day Scout Ranger Training in Bulacan where he graduated first among the 97 people in their class.
Prior to joining the Army, Matteo's last big screen outing was in the 2017 rom-com "Can't Help Falling In Love" with Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.
