As a prelude to the 70th death anniversary of Jose Abad Santos, a small monument is placed exactly in his death site in Malabang, Lanao del Sur.

The placement was led by City Administrator Ferdinand Caylao together with a team from the City Government composed of tourism officers Jeffrey Yutuc, Debbie Rivera, Emmalyn Tuazon, Rico Bunao of Public Affairs and Media Production Unit and Muslim Community officials Macaslang Bitiarra and Kaiser Manranda.

Caylao said that the mission was successful since the location at first is considered as danger zones and "no man's lands."

With fears in their trip, the team proceeded amid the danger and risks thinking that the mission is for the service of the city and the country.

And after the three-day voyage and mission to put a marker in the "no man's land", it was mission accomplished and made it back safely to San Fernando.

Caylao and team are planning to will go back to the area next year for the blessing of the monument, which they would ask the Philippine Army to build and hoping to be with the mayor to unveil the said monument. [via clarkphilippines.com]
