Duterte holds back tears as blind soldier says 'until the last drop of our blood, we will fight under your leadership'


President Duterte held back his tears as he listened to blinded Lieutenant Jerome Jacuba speak on National Heroes Day August 28, 2016

In a trembling voice Jacuba declared "Until the last drop of our blood, we will fight under your leadership. We will die serving the country because we seen the sincerity of our president. It is an honor to serve under your leadership."

Lieutenant Jerome Jacuba was among the soldiers Duterte met when he visited the AFP General Hospital on V. Luna Road in Quezon City.  The 28-year-old soldier became blind after he was hit by an IED during an operation.

The blast caused total blindness in his right eye and retinal detachment in his left where he only sees light perception. He was admitted in the hospital March 4, 2016.

  2. When you finally see a working government, the all knowing Lps and cohorts does nothing but try to topple down his government. Nakakalasing ba talaga ang power, yung kayo maghari harian? Sobrang yaman nyo na! Paambag naman kahit konti kaming mga ordinaryong mamamayan!

  20. Du30, the punisher of the evil. the savior of the oppressed filipino people. Quote from Gandhi: "When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always.” – Mohandas K. Gandhi
    Good and Truth will always prevail over evil, it is the way! more power to the Pres.
