Book 21: HONORING THE DAUNTLESS AND THE BENEVOLEN

In this book, we honor the heroism of our fallen comrades, who were killed in the clashes with the ISIS-Maute terrorists group in Marawi City, and the gallantry of the different security forces and units deployed to liberate the city. At the same time, we acknowledge the overwhelming support from the different sectors, national and international organizations, government and non-government agencies, and individuals, particularly President Rodrigo R. Duterte, who frequently visited ground zero to boost the morale of the troops. Lastly, the book accentuates the simple tokens and gestures extended to the troops such as the heartfelt letters and songs expressing support, encouragement and hope, which deeply moved the soldiers’ hearts.
