As a seafarer i used to work with filipino crews.
All i can say about them is that they are highly dependable, honest, smart, they always show high spirits, always making jokes and laughing, even when shit hits the fan, great comrades, they will endure anything and everything side by side with you if you are their friend. I just love these little guys.
From East Europe, Romania - Greetings and shaking hands to all my filipino friends!

It's been a while since Marawi, but I still can't help but admire the professionalism and tactical gear of the Philippines military. Nigeria has a lot to learn from them in our current war against terrorism in the North East.

Solid SOF troopers. Cool, calm, professional. The OIC so professional when interviewed. Philippine Marines so chill, smiles under fire. I wouldn't underestimate their resolve, they been fighting guerrillas for decades. Imagine if they had proper gear?
