Soldiers in formation. Just want to share the photo of my friend’s husband, who was part of the Philippine contingent sent to Haiti for a peacekeeping activity in 2005. This was their usual formation while they are assigned in the now earthquake-devastated nation. Technical Sergeant Manuel Añain, of the Philippine Marines is second from right. My friend who is also my kumare is thankful that her husband’s deployment in Haiti had ended long before tragedy struck. But she is also sorry for the families of soldiers who died doing their duty.
Let us pray for the repose of the souls of those who perished in the tragedy.
