We are saddened by the helicopter crash involving our Philippine Air Force personnel while resupplying troops to counteract communist rebels in Bukidnon yesterday, January 16, 2021.

With this, we extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and loved ones of our fallen heroes.

Their stark bravery, courage, and patriotism never waived until their last hours while serving our beloved country.
