The Philippine Scout Rangers has been hailed as the country’s most elite fighting in the world, especially in anti-guerrilla warfare.

In the Marawi conflict, the Scout Rangers has been at the forefront in the battle to retake Marawi from the ISIS-affiliated militants, Maute and Abu Sayyaf groups.

In one instance, the Scout Rangers were tasked to rescue members of the 5th mechanized battalion whose Simba tank was immobilized by enemy RPG’s and succeeded after four days of fighting.

And the latest to emerge from the battle field in Marawi is the rescue of a female civilian who was literally caught in the cross fire between the Scout Rangers and the Maute militants.

This is the miraculous rescue of Geraldine by the Scout Rangers, the female civilian whose plight came to national consciousness after her husband, Saipodin Mariga, was chanced upon by reporters while asking military officials to allow him pass through check points to personally fetch his wife in the war zone.

Siya si Geraldine, nasagip ng mababangis na Scout Rangers kanina. Siya ‘yung hinahanap ng isang lalaking napapanood sa mga balita na lubos na nag-aalala para sa kanyang asawa.

Literal na nasa gitna ng bakbakan si Geraldine dahil ang kanyang bahay ay nasa gitna lang ng pwesto ng kalaban at ng mga sundalo. Mabuti na lamang at hindi siya nadamay at naitimbre kaagad sa mga musang na naroon siya sa area.
Lugaw, softdrinks, wafer at tubig lang ang survival n’ya for 22 days. Diyan na rin siya nakahiga sa sahig. Naka ilang airstrike din ang building na ‘di kalayuan sa bahay niya na pilit kinuha ng mga musang apat na araw bago ito nakubkob.

Open na open at nasa high ground ang mga kalaban kaya pinalapit ng mga Rangers yung tangke sa location ng bahay ni Geraldine.

Hindi maubos maisip ng mga musang kung papaano nabuhay si Geraldine. May mga tama ng shrapnels ang kanyang katawan.Tagos rin ang mga bala sa bahay niya, pati mesa may tama.

Hinang hina na si Geraldine nang makita ng mga Scout Rangers. Agad siyang inilipat ng mga musang sa isang armed personnel carrier patungo sa kanyang kalayaan at sa bisig ng kanyang mapagmahal na asawa.
