Another Philippine Army officer died this morning at Zamboanga City Hospital. He’s a member of the elite 3rd Light Reaction Company of the Special Operations Command conducting clearing operations at Zamboanga City. He belongs to PMA Class 2007. It was reported that he was fatally wounded yesterday during heavy clashes with MNLF breakaway group at Brgy Sta. Barbara.
He’s from Quezon City. Sadly, this young officer is also married. He’s the most senior among the junior officers who died earlier. They belong to PMA classes 2007, 2008 and 2011.
I offer my deepest sympathy to his family. He will never be forgotten! Another hero of the Filipino people has fallen.
First Lieutenant Francis Damian
