East Coast USA, Regional Chapter
Filipinos are considered to belong in one of the world’s most resilient races. They travel far and wide and migrate to other countries just to give their families better opportunities. Once they get settled in foreign lands, Filipinos always have the nagging feeling of how to express their sense of patriotism to their motherland - the Philippines. This is brought about by the Filipino’s cultural attachment and love for, loyalty, devotion and pride to their homeland. Their patriotic acts are beyond question because they are selfless and motivated with the desire to benefit their birth country.
In the land of opportunities, the United States of America, the Filipinos are at the forefront of various socio-civic affairs and are actively involved in humanitarian and charitable movements to benefit those who are distressed and challenged. This inspired Supremo “ALAKDAN” a former military officer of the Philippine Army and a Freemason, to introduce the GUARDIANS brand of nationalism among US-based Filipinos who have long been searching for an avenue where they could channel their sense of patriotism to the Philippines. Supremo “ALAKDAN” then organized the GBI-The Original East Coast USA, Regional Chapter to encourage patriotic Filipinos living in the northeastern states in America to join the organization and to keep the Filipino spirit alive in their hearts.
The organization started with the marking of the three brothers on August 17, 2013, namely: Bro. Rimando “RMG CAJES” Cajes, Bro. Eugene “MG GENE” Malasarte, and Bro. Antonio “MG TGS” Sarmiento.
On October 5, 2013, Bro. Arthur “MG ART” Belotindos was marked.
On October 12, 2013, a GUARDIANS history was made because the first Supremo to be marked in America formally joined the organization in the person of Welmer Anthony “SGF TAURUS” Suganob.
On October 19 of the same year, the GBI - The Original New York Chapter was founded with the marking of five brothers and a sister, to wit: Bro. Juniper “GVF ASIONG” Domantay, Bro. Edwino “GRF HERCULES" Tan, Bro. Ramon “RMG VIRGO” Mojica, Bro. Jay “RMG SPARROW” de Guzman, Bro. Randolf “RMG 9MM” Santillan, and Didette “RMG LIBRA” Endrina, the first Madonna of the chapter.
The eleven newly-marked members bear the blue-colored tattoo on their skin as pioneers of the newly-created New York Chapter. On that same day , an election was conducted and a new set of officers were elected: President– RMG CAJES, Vice President - MG ART, Secretary - RMG LIBRA, Treasurer - MG GENE, Auditor - GRF HERCULES, Sgt-At-Arms - MG TGS. Then SGF ALAKDAN appointed RMG SPARROW as Interim President for Connecticut Chapter with 9MM as Vice President. While GVF ASIONG and SGF TAURUS as advisers for Connecticut and New York Chapters respectively.
On February 22, 2014 during the meeting held at FDR LIBRA’s residence, the Bylaws to govern the chapter was presented by SGF ALAKDAN and was unanimously approved by the members.
On May 5, 2014, SGF Alakdan appointed Jeremy "FDR IBARRA" S. PAL as Interim President of Maryland Chapter, USA.
On June 18, 2014, the first Godmother of the GBI - The Original East Coast USA, Regional Chapter in the person of Jeanne Iris “FGBM IRIS” M. Pal, who is a member of the U.S. Army, joined the group.
On July 19, 2014, a Family Day was held which also served as the anticipated celebration of the founding day anniversary of the organization which is on the 17th of August 2014.
On July 28, 2014, Elpidio "MF CARLOMAGNO" Seletaria, Jr., LLB, National Chairman/Incorporator, formally recognized the Chapters (New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Maryland) as an official composition of the GBI-The Original East Coast USA, Regional Chapter and elevating Eduardo "SGF ALAKDAN" M. Calub as National Founder "NF," and be now known as "NF ALAKDAN."
