The Four Honor Guards during Cory Aquino’s Funeral

Philippine Cebu, Philippine Celebrities, Philippine Country Site Updates, Philippine Government, Philippine History, Philippine Metro Manila, Philippine News Update, Philippine Politics No Comments »

Last August 5, 2009, Philippines four honor guards stood for more than 9 hours (snappy, straight, no food and water, no rest even through rainy day, bumps, dryness on the road and inclines) to escort Former President Cory Aquino’s remains from the Manila Cathedral in Intramuros to the Manila Memorial Park in Paranaque City, which is a 23 kilometer route. The four honor guards boarded the truck at past 11 a.m. when police generals, acting as pallbearers, carried Cory Aquino’s wooden casket out of the cathedral after the more than two-hour Requiem Mass.

They got off the truck past 8 p.m. when they reached Manila Memorial Park where the revered People Power heroine was laid to rest next to her martyred husband, former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. The honor guards were given the highest honor and commendation and a cash of 25,000 pesos each. What they did seem ordinary to us. But try standing up for hours on the truck without moving and you’d see how difficult it was. It’s harder than walking, it’s harder than running, stand in one position for eight hours is a very tough job, however, they quietly did their job.
