President Rodrigo Roa Duterte conferred the Order of Lapu-Lapu with the Rank of Kampilan to the 13 wounded-in-action (WIA) soldiers during his visit at the Camp Teodulfo Bautista Station Hospital in Jolo, Sulu.

The award is given to officials, government personnel and private individuals severely wounded or who suffered a significant loss of property as a direct result of their participation in an action supporting a campaign or advocacy of the President.

The encounter against the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) on May 31, 2019 resulted to 15 WIA soldiers, with two (2) of them airlifted to the Navarro General Hospital in Zamboanga City due to major injuries.
