Col. Mateo Luga was, with Fr. Angel B. Luga, Eng. Tony Luga and Maria Luga-Ramiro, among our major sponsors during the 75th Death Anniversary Celebration of the Gen. Mateo Noriel Luga, which we entitled the "The Return of the Tribal Warriors of Cagayan Valley". It was Col. Mateo Luga, who in early childhood, with his brother Col. Isagani Luga+ (PMA Batch 54') and cousin, Gen. Emilio S. Luga, Jr., who were told stories of war, honor, family and country by their Great Grandfather Gen. Mateo Noriel Luga. It was the old man who inspired them to become among the finest officers and gentlemen of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. It was the ideals of their Great Grandfather that motivated them to served the higher interest, go out of their way and take the risk to interfere in a higly volatile event, a closely guarded epoch that changes the course of history of this nation during the The 1989 Coup d'Etat', and even prior thereto, which the public has not been fully aware. The security cordon of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company, that provided communications for the different parties to interact and communicate clearly during those times when the Republic has been in the brink of collapse and anarchy, was adequately secured under his watch as the Vice-President for Security Affairs of the PLDT.

In his honor, Col. Mateo Luga, aside from Gen. Emilio Luga, Jr., was also cited among the Honorees during the 75th Death Anniversary of Gen. Mateo Noriel Luga.
