MANILA – Wounded soldiers received decorations in recognition of their service during the fateful twin explosions in Jolo, Sulu the other day with the visit of Major General Corleto Vinluan, Jr. who checked on their conditions at the Camp Navarro Hospital in Calarian District, Zamboanga City yesterday.

In a statement from AFP-WestMinCom, it was learned General Vinluan conferred Wounded Personnel Medals to Sgt. Normal Santiago, Corporal Jesus Genora, Corporal Jeric Fil Villaruz, Privates First Class Jay Carbon, Jeffry Domingo and Rocelo Abacial, Jr.
