The Armed Forces of the Philippines reported that as of July 10, 2017 a total of 87 soldiers have been killed since the Marawi siege started and one of them is the veteran scout ranger who was identified as Sgt. Jeff Sangdaan.


Sgt. Jeff Sangdaan is one of the four Scout Rangers who were killed during an encounter with the ISIS terrorists in Marawi and before his death, he made his Farewell Letter to his wife that was shared by thousands of Filipinos on social media.

The veteran Scout Ranger assigned in Marawi City wrote an open letter to his wife in which he stated that once his wife will read his letter he could be riding his one way trip to where he is right now.

Netizens shared how they rendered salute to the fallen soldier for his bravery in defending our freedom to somewhat ease the burdens and the heaviest emotional and mental toll to the wife and children of the fallen soldier.


Here's the Complete Letter of Scout Ranger Sgt. Jeff Sangdaan:

"Habang binabasa mo to. Malamang nakuha ko na ang ticket para sa one way trip papunta dito sa kinalalagyan ko. Oo sobrang gusto ko na hahalikan pa kita nang isang huling halik. Nung bata pa ako akala ko ang Gyera ay isang laro lang ng mga paslit. Pero ngayon ibababa ko na ang baril ko sa lupa isasabit ko na ang aking mga boots. Andito nako sa tabi ni Jesus magkatabi kaming nakatingin sayo. Kaya ihimlay mo nako sa dulo ng bayan doon sa matiwasay na pwesto na may mga bulaklak. At alam kong ang kaluluwa ko ay mapupunta sa kung saan laging dinadasal ng nanay ko na mapunta. At habang binabasa mo to andun nako. Habang binabasa mo to sobrang gusto kong maisilayan ang paglabas sa mundo ng kaunaunahang babaeng anak natin. Sana maging kamukha mo at sana maging kasing tapang ko na tatayo para sa mga inosente at mahihina. At habang binabasa mo to iniisip ko na darating din ang araw na magiging handa kanang magmahal ng iba at yun ang tanging hiling ko. Habang binabasa mo to tandaan mo nasa mas magandang lugar na ako kung saan andito ang mga sundalo at anghel na nagsasaya. At habang binabasa mo to gusto kong sabihin mo sa nanay ko na wag na malungkot at pakisabi sa tatay ko na hindi ako nagsisisi na sundan ang yapak nya bilang kawal." .
