Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte visited the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Medical Center and the Western Mindanao Command hospital in Zamboanga City as a part of his tour of military health facilities and military camps in the country. But it was in the AFP Medical Center that the newly-elected president felt how it really feels like to defend the country and get injured in the line of fire.

August 2, the President was teary eyed whenmeeting a young soldier who has lost his eyesight in a clearing operation at Brgy. Datu Salita in Maguidanao in March. 2nd Lieutenant Jerome Jacuba could not keep his tears from falling as President Duterte approached him and shook his hand. The President pulled the soldier and hugged him. Jacuba could be seen shaking during the encounter.
