Maj. Gen. Brawner is a member of the Philippine Military Academy “Makatao” Class of 1989. Under his leadership, the 4ID neutralized high-ranking CTG personalities in Northern Mindanao and Caraga regions including Jorge Madlos alias Ka Oris, head of the NPA’s National Operational Command. Ka Oris’ neutralization demoralized their ranks resulted in a series of surrenders and seizure of firearms nationwide. The unit also significantly reduced the CPP-NPA presence in their areas of responsibility.
