LT. GEN Carlito G. Galvez, Jr., head of the Western Mindanao Command, receives his Peaceweaver award, which he dedicated to the 165 government forces who were killed during the five-month gun battle with the Daesh-inspired extremist groups in Marawi City. “I dedicate this award to the 165 soldiers who died in Marawi, I remember them who fought for the liberation of Marawi City,” Mr. Galvez said. The Peaceweaver award is bestowed annually by the Zamboanga City-based Inter-religious Solidarity for Peace to individuals or organizations in line with the week-long celebration of the Mindanao Week of Peace, set this year from Nov. 30-Dec. 6.
