The family survived the horrendous night with the help of the police and soldiers who sacrificed their lives even though they knew the area was at a focal point of the NPA's ambush.

PNP Chief Police General Oscar David Albayalde congratulated all the awardees for their remarkable performance of duties. 

"Your good work, dedication to duty and your deep commitment to the ideals of service, honor, and justice are the best tributes you can render to our forebears," Albayalde said.
