Heroism has many faces.

Just before dark on July 28, 2014, police officers on duty at the Tubao, La Union Philippine National Police (PNP) Station, saw a worried Rebecca Bataller, 63 years old and almost completely blind, outside the municipal hall which is adjacent to the police station. She just came from the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office and her daughter who was supposed to fetch her hours before had not yet arrived. The police offered to accompany her home in Barangay Francia Sur but Bataller was hesitant and too shy for the offer. Upon finally convincing her, PSINSP Benigno C. Sumawang, the Chief of Police, instructed his men to give the indigent old lady a ride using their police mobile. SPO3 Erlinda Basallo-Gagaoin, head of the Women and Children's Protection Desk (WCPD), volunteered to accompany Bataller to her home.

Lola Rebecca’s home is located in the middle of a farm which is about 200 meters away from the barangay road. With all her strength, she carried Lola Rebecca on her back but because of the muddy pathway, SPO3 Gagaoin was forced to take off her shoes and socks and roll up her pants to make sure that she would not slip and cause injury to the old lady. Adding difficulty to her trek was the rain shower and stones that litter along the way.
