--- Quote from: pythontrooper on March 10, 2010, 08:46:41 PM ---Yup! they are almost all from PA. Pardon me but i dont have a record of Valor awardees from other branch of svcs. But MGEN CASTANEDA is a Constabulary Officer while CAPT VILLAMOR is an Air Force Officer.

Villamor was with the PAAC for his exploits which technically was under the PA;  mebbe your title has to be rechanged to PA / Early AFP MV Awardees.

 :jeez:

and number 8 should be Weenie not Weena... ( your post is also in the wrong section - this should not be in the OPFOR area but more for History).

 :jeez: :jeez:

For lack of a better source ... Wiki says so:

However, Major Atienza lost his life that day. In return, a grateful nation led by President Corazon C. Aquino and the Armed Forces found him deserving of a Filipino warrior's highest prize: the Medal of Valor.

Mary Grace Baloyo was a First Lieutenant in the Philippine Air Force who received the Philippine's highest military award for valor - The Medal of Valor. The circumstances in which she was awarded the medal is unique in that it was not given for actions against enemy forces but rather for self sacrifice. On March 26, 2001, the plane in which she was flying was experiencing engine trouble and rapidly descending into a heavily populated area. Rather than ejecting, she chose to stay on board and diverted the plane before it crashed subsequently killing her. To date, Baloyo is one of only 4 recipients of the medal from the Philippine Air Force and the only female recipient of the medal. She was also posthumously promoted to rank of Captain.

I didn't know they gave out the MoV outside combat.
