Social media mourns death of Scout ranger buddies who died to save the lives of injured comrades

In the Scout Rangers creed, a Musang swears not to leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy even if it even means risking one’s life.

On Tuesday, June 27, 2017, Sgt. Reynold Palma at Private First Class Marjun Edaño uphold the creed of the Scout Rangers to the letter but the paid the ultimate price after losing their lives while engaging Maute militants in close quarter combat.

Credits to Scout Ranger Books

According to the account of their comrades, members of the 7th Scout Ranger Company entered the stronghold of the Maute militants, a 3-storey building, to evict the occupants. The militants who outnumbered the Scout Rangers offered stiff resistance.

In the ensuing close quarter battle, some of the Rangers sustained wounds that requires immediate evacuation. Sgt. Palma nd PFC Edaño hold their line to allow their injured comrades to get medical treatment.

When the soldiers recovered their bodies, the two were found lying side by side while holding their rifles to their last breath.

A total 0f 18 Scout Rangers have perished in the Marawi siege to date.

Here’s the narration of Scout Ranger Books written in Tagalog.

Kahapon, sa giyera na dikitan, ipinamalas ni late Sgt. Reynold Palma at Private First Class Marjun Edaño ang tunay na katapangan ng mga Scout Rangers. Ito ang sabi ng kasama nila sa 7th Scout Ranger Company: “cla yung team na pumasok xa isang bahay sir na my 3rd floor ang pinaka strong hold din ng kalaban na d inaalisan ng mga kalaban sir. yung team nila ang pumasok dun sir khit alam nila na madami pangkalaban dun sir pero pinasok parin nila sir. Ngputukan na xa loob sir pilit nilang nilabanan yung mga kalaban sir khit na puro sugatan na ang kanyang mga team mates sir. nghold the line yung dalawa sir na c sgt palma (team leader) at c Pfc edañio (gunner). yung iba niyang member ay kasalukuyang ineevac dahil xa tama sir. pinuputukan parin nila ang kalaban nila sir para d malapit xa kanila sir.” Namatay na parehas lumalaban sina late Sgt. Palma at Pfc Edaño. Na recover ang kanilang mga bangkay na magkatabi at hawak pa ang kanilang baril hanggang sa huling hininga nila. Sila ang pang 18 na kapwa naming Scout Ranger na nag buwis ng buhay sa Marawi.
