2 11th IB soldiers cited for honesty


TWO soldiers of the 11th Infantry Battalion helping in the search and retrieval operations were cited for honesty after they turned in to government authorities cash amounting to P70,000, which they recovered in the landslide area.
Undersecretary Benito Ramos of the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Center identified the two soldiers as Pvt. Danny Faigne and Pvt. Marlon Vera who were helping in the search and retrieval operations in Solonggon, La Libertad, Negros Oriental.
Meanwhile, Ramos said the search and retrieval operations will continue in the landslide-stricken areas.
“There is no deadline set,” Ramos said.
The search and retrieval operation has entered its first week since the 6.9-magnitude earthquake hit the Visayas region and took its toll on several localities in Negros Oriental.
He said they continue to hope that there are still survivors in the landslide stricken area.
