During the early days 2009 several commissioned officers and non-commissioned officers of the 1502nd Infantry Brigade studied the possibility of raising the actual strength of their unit to full brigade status. With this study came the need to incorporate a service support unit similar to what regular infantry brigades of the Philippine Army had in the field.
LTC SAL G DUMABOK MNSA (GSC) RES PA - deputy brigade commander of the 1502IBDE (RR) instructed then 1LT VIRGILIO S FERRER II (RES) PA to coordinate with the AFP Reserve Command and seek their assistance with the possibility of creating or service detailing a unit of the Technical Services (Reserve) with their reserve unit. Their efforts yielded approval from AFPRESCOM and the 105th Technical and Administrative Services Group under the command of LTC PETER C SUCHIANCO RES (GSC) JAGS authorized the creation of a unit that will provide service support to the 1502nd Brigade.
In 2013 1LT FERRER then decided to pursue a career as a Military Lawyer and resigned his commissioned with the Philippine Army Reserves and was subsequently re-commissioned as a Major with the Reserve Force - AFP Judge Advocate General Corps. By 1 February 2014, the Quezon City TAS Unit was activated with MAJ VIRGILIO S FERRER II (RES) JAGS as its commanding officer and CPT CARLO ANTONIO M BERNABE (RES) MAC as its executive officer.
The initial corps of Non-commissioned Officers of the unit were recruited from inactive status reservists of the Army Reserve Command consisting of 48 Senior Enlisted Personnel. On March 1, 2014, the first batch of 70 reservists candidates started training to become enlisted reservists and eventually will be assigned to this unit after completion of their training.
The first batch of graduates, class "Magtanggol 1", graduated from the Special Basic Citizens Military Training on Sept 13, 2014 and subsequently incorporated in the reserve force AFP and assigned to this unit.
In April 2015, the unit had its first batch of homegrown Commissioned Officers that were added to its roster. These were seasoned NCOs and Enlisted Personnel that were encouraged to step up and become officers.
