Feature: Wounded soldier is more determined to serve

By Ninfa B Quirante

Catbalogan, Samar (15 October) -- Wounded soldier Lt Joash Pramis of the 63rd Infantry Battalion based in Catubig, Northern Samar vowed to serve more with passion and dedication after being wounded in a firefight.

The wounded personnel medal award he received from Major General Arthur Tabaquero yesterday boosted his morale, he told PIA-Samar.

The medal came after a year of service to the army as the young officer was commissioned in the year 2008.

Pramis together with his men Pfc Daryl Cantiller, Pfc Jerry Gabuta, Pfc Marwin Buctot, Pfc Charito Hinayon, Pfc Diosdado Domindo, Pfc Rex Velasco and Pfc Melchor Oli were wounded during an encounter with more or less 50 armed men in Barangay Hibunawan, Silvino Lobos, N Samar.

Col Armand Rico of the 8th Infantry Division (8th ID)D said that the rebels were led by a certain Billy Morado who were collecting money and foodstuff from the barangay.

Some unidentified residents tipped off the government troops and the ensuing firefight lasted for thirty minutes.

Pramis said as the leader, he did not lose focus and vowed to fight the enemies of the state.

Because of his injuries, he was airlifted to the army hospital, but not without making sure first that his men would live.

This gallant officer dreamed of becoming a soldier in his early years in Luzon, the soldiers' gait and precise movements, he said inspired him to take soldiery and carry on his mission.

However, this young official said that the anti insurgency campaign can not be won by bullets alone, he believes that socio-economic development projects could help find the solution.

This gentleman thinks that what every soldier does is a contribution to finding the solution, be it in combat or non combat efforts like medical mission, bringing development projects to remote areas and helping the people in times of calamities and disaster. (PIA-Samar) [top]
