That was until he also joined the revolt in EDSA People Power 1. "To be entitled to be buried in that particular piece of land, you don’t have to die in battle because there are many recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor who are still living today,”he said.
“The trouble in this country is we hate other people. We do not know how to forgive people,” he said. “Tama na itong [Stop this] Marcos hating. It will destroy the innards and the conscience, and the emotions of this country. You cannot erase Marcos in the history of this country.”he added.
