Our Soldiers

I had the honor of visiting the memorial of a great military genius of the 20th century. In 2009, I went to Norfolk, Virginia to pay respect to the person who liberated our country from Japan in second world war, General Douglas MacArthur.

I was in awe to learn his life thru pictures and memorabilias and mesmerized by his intelligence, bravery and unmatched ego of a general in recent memory.

We've known lots of military leaders from the past like Alexander The Great, Julius Caesar, Hannibal (who taught Romans the meaning of fear), Genghis Khan, Napoleon Bonaparte and others who, like Gen. MacArthur, fought with their men in the field.

Of course, pahuhuli ba ang mga Pinoy?

I'm not talking about stupid men in uniform like Generals Fabian Ver, Angelo Reyes or Carlos Garcia. They are different kind of animals who belong to prison! I'm referring to our soldiers who do not know the word 'surrender' in any fight.

Just few days ago, under heavy fire in Syria's Golan Heights, the Filipino UN Peacekeepers stood their ground. We showed the whole world that Filipinos are brave and will never surrender easily.

As Gen. MacArthu...

A few days back, I was able to watch in History Channel the rigid training our soldiers go through. It made me remember as well an article Ive read giving a tribute to them. And then I remember how some sectors cried violation of human rights when the media showed a video of some soldiers kicking a captive Abu Sayyaf who was defying capture. Naisip ko, ang mga sundalong pinugutan ng ulo, inambush, nawalan ng kamay at paa, and nobody cried human rights violation for them, ang mga sundalong tumatakbo sa mga kabundukan at gubat wearing broken combat shoes that not even the Salvation Army or any foundation here would accept, carrying weapons without bullets, fighting hunger, fatigue and even death, para mahuli ang mga tulisang katulad ng mga Abu Sayyaf na ni walang ideology na ipinaglalaban kundi pera-pera lang. Nakakalungkot.

And yes, in Syria, once again our soldiers showed the world what courage and heroism mean.

I'M A NICE PERSON. JUST DON'T PRESS THE BITCH BUTTON.

Our soldiers are'nt graduates of Sandhurst or of Fort Brag but they are graduates of Bataan and Corregidor.We know when and where to choose our fighting ground.If it's a question of following orders there comes a time when disobeying it is the right decision.

Panyero just by mentioning Bataan and Corregidor ay nakakatatak na agad ang katapangan sa mga sundalong pinoy.

Good job!

Puso tapang lakas  ng katawan at pag iisip tibay ng paninindigan at prinsipyo, yan ang bumubuo sa isang filipino soldier! Hindi yan nakukuha sa pag aaral! Kundi sa dugong nanalaytay sa bawat isa sa kanila. Mabuhay ang mga tagapag tanggol ng bayan! Sana lang bigyan sila ng pansin ng govt. Maayos na sahod at benepisyo. Mga sandata at kasuootang moderno pra sa pakikipaglaban.

Blood is thicker than water, But my loyalty is thicker than my BLOOD

I totally agree with you. A potential bad news that became a good news. Thanks to the president for prioritizing the military.

Truly, Filipinos are worth dying for. They showed the world that we are second to none when it comes to serving humanity.

Mga duwag daw!  Broke chain of command!  The order was to "not shoot", dapat nag stay daw yung mga Pilipino sa position nila.  Basta wag lang isu-surrender ang mga armas.  Mahirap ba yun?  Shunga mga pinoy na tumakas!  Pano na yung mga Fijians?

Bwisit!  Ano yun?  E di nilooban sila, at kinuha sapilitan yung mga armas.  Makagawa lang ng palusot e....  Siguro pag kinuha yung armas nila, sasabihin nila "hindi naman nila sinurrender e, taken by force lang"...

Long live our soldiers!  Totoo nga sabi nila, mahuhusay lumaban mga pinoy na sundalo!
