Soldier’s kin can’t take his death-A A +A
Monday, July 30, 2012
THE family of a soldier from Tanjay City, Negros Oriental, who was killed in a clash between the government troops and the Abu Sayyaf bandits in Basilan last week, cannot accept his death.
The remains of Private First Class (PFC) Segundiano Tamayo arrived at the Dumaguete Airport from Zamboanga City through the Philippine Air Force C130 plane on Saturday afternoon.
Hydie Tamayo, younger sister of PFC Tamayo, could not accept the death of her brother despite the fact that they already knew the risk of a soldier’s profession.
Hydie’s father is a retired soldier and her two brothers, including PFC Tamayo are also soldiers.
She described PFC Tamayo as a loving brother and a family oriented man.
Hydie said before her brother’s death, PFC Tamayo called her up and informed her of a reunion in his birthday this coming August. The reunion will happen on his burial.
PFC Tamayo’s body now lies at his parent’s house in Palanas village in Tanjay City. The schedule of the burial is not yet determined.
