Si Tagure, ang kumander ng kumpanya ng 4th Special Forces Company ng 2nd Special Forces Battalion, ay kinilala sa kanyang "conspicuous courage and gallantry in action in the face of armed enemies" sa matagumpay na pagligtas sa isang British na si Alan Hyrons at ang kanyang asawang Pilipino na si Wilma, noong Nobyembre.

Si Tagure ay isa sa mga tatanggap ng 14 na parangal na ibinigay sa anibersaryo ng AFP.
