Last Dec 14,2006 four Scout Ranger trained policemen lived out the motto of the defunct Phil.Constabulary of "Always outnumbered but never out fought" by standing their ground and fighting ferociously against 30 NPA terrorist who attacked their police outpost at around 10pm and lasted for 30 minutes in Brgy San Jose Sipalay.
10 km from the Sipalay city proper. the 30 min gunbattle was led by
PO1 JOSELITO BANDIOLA,ABRAHAM JOLINGAN,RAFFY BILLONES and JULYSESS CATALOGO.
They were only armed with 2 rifles and 2 handguns with limited ammo. They were told to surrender but they decided to shoot it out with the rebels. they were blasted with M203 grenade lauchers, 10 which failed to explode.
Kudos to the PNP for a job well done and standing their ground.
