Corporal Delos Reyes covered the granade with his body to save comrades from the explosion

A post grabbed numerous greetings of sympathy when @salutetothefallen posted on their Facebook page a photo of corporal Eric Delos Reyes of Brgy. Tagasilay, Zamboanga City of the Marine Special Operations Group that died from excessive wounds he got from shrapnel in his body as he tried to save his fellow soldiers during their clearing operations. He valiantly covered the grenade with his body before it went off.

Read the Facebook post below:

"Ang sundalong si Corporal Eric Delos Reyes ay nasawi mula umano sa mga grabeng sugat ng shrapnel na tinamo sa iba’t ibang bahagi ng katawan sa kagustusan nitong masalba ang iba niyang mga kasamahan mula sa sumabog na granada habang ginagawa nila ang clearing operation noong Lunes."

"Si Delos Reyes ay residente ng Barangay Tagasilay sa Zamboanga City at kasapi ng Philippine Marine Special Operations Group. Buwan ng Hulyo lamang ng kasalukuyang taon nang magpakasal sila ng kanyang misis."
