“Hindi man natin trabaho ang magpa-anak, hindi kayo nagdalawang-isip na magbigay ng ganitong klaseng serbisyo,” Gen. Eleazar said in commending Terrol and his fellows from the Ormoc City Police Station 3.
“Nakatataba ng puso ang mga magandang gawain ng ating mga pulis na nagpapakita ng likas na malasakit sa kapwa at kahandaang magbigay ng tunay na serbisyo sa mamamayan,” he said.
