Report
Tanay, Rizal is a small town, an hour and a half away from Manila, but it's a world apart from urban Manila. If travelers like serenity, staring at mountain ranges, and feeling the wind on one's face, Tanay is worth a visit.

In Barangay Sampaloc is Camp Capinpin, the home of Philippine Army's Jungle Fighter Division.
Camp Mateo Capinpin, the present camp, was named after Brigadier General Mateo M Capinpin, the gallant soldier of the 21st Infantry Division who rose from the ranks during World War II.

It is strategically located at the foothills of the scenic Sierra Madre Mountain Range with an elevation of 1,400 feet above sea level and 70 kilometers just east of Manila.

On 01 February 1970, the 2nd Infantry Brigade (Separate) was formally put into active duty. The first Headquarters of the 2nd Brigade was housed in Camp Vicente Lim in Canlubang, Calamba City and later, was moved to Brgy Sampaloc in Tanay, Rizal.

On 19 March 1976, the Brigade was upgraded and reorganized into a full Infantry Division of the Philippine Army.

Within Tanay is the site of RCD City, a 100 hectares of Self-Contained Community. The projects are RCD Homes East (house and lot) and RCD East Grove (lot only).
