President Rodrigo Roa Duterte conferred the Order of Lapu-Lapu with the Rank of Kampilan to the wounded-in-action (WIA) soldiers who were injured during the military’s encounter with communist rebel group members last November 11, 2019 in Eastern Samar.

The Order of Lapu-Lapu with the Kampilan Rank Medal is awarded to government workers and civilians who were seriously wounded or injured or suffered great loss of property as a direct result of their participation to a campaign or advocacy of the President.
