A new movie, "Giting at Tapang" (Heroism and Bravery), is set to be released next month to honor the heroic sacrifice of Cordilleran hero Corporal Gener Tinangag, who was killed during the Marawi siege in 2017.
Tinangag, a native of Barlig, Mountain Province, displayed incredible courage and selflessness when he refused to retreat despite being shot to the stomach by an enemy sniper and peppered with grenade shrapnel. Instead, he continued to rescue his wounded comrades, even carrying one of them to safety on his back.
For his selfless act of bravery, Tinangag was posthumously awarded the Medal for Valor, the Philippines' highest military honor. The Medal for Valor is awarded to military personnel who have distinguished themselves by acts of conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty.
The movie "Giting at Tapang" will tell the story of Tinangag's heroic sacrifice. It is sure to be an emotional and inspiring tribute to a true hero. It is a story that needs to be told, and it is a story that will be worth sharing.
