From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On higher financial aid for troops disabled during combat


Higher financial aid for troops disabled during combat is welcome news

Senator Ralph Recto’s move to grant P1-M financial assistance to soldiers and policemen who are permanently disabled in the performance of their duty during combat or police operations is very encouraging.

This effort to increase the financial assistance extended to government forces is a much appreciated recognition of the heroism that our men and women in uniform showed in the field of battle.

We are hopeful that all would see the merit in Senator Recto’s call.
