Who said Honesty among men in uniform is dead? And the concrete jungle that is NAIA airport is not a safe portal to be in?
Job Great Done
While pondering on such question of crappy services, ugly extortion & blatant cheating, here comes a 36 year old man Danny Namion of Advance Forces Security who stole the media spotlight 2 days ago – giving away the country’s front-line station a good image anew, shunning away the not-so good ones.
The father of two has drew inspiration upon his peers. He has earned for himself both an accolade and due merit from his immediate superiors after returning a mysterious backpack containing a staggering P.5 worth of cash or (US$10,700) plus other valuable documents and gadgets on it. The same was mistakenly left inside a baggage cart by a local passenger of NAIA Terminal 1, arrival area.
Upon investigation by airport authorities, the bag’s rightful owner belongs to a certain Jessie Amor, an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) engineer based in Malaysia who can’t express his gratitude and delight for this man’s award-wining modesty and commitment to task.
As a token of gratitude for the guard’s award-winning act, he tipped him off with $300 – big enough for someone who admitted to just borrowed P100 from a co-worker a so to buy a decent meal for the day.
The $200 from his blessing was said to be shared fairly among his co-workers. Likewise, for a family man who struggles to meet both ends by a meager P12K monthly salary, such ridiculous amount of moolah is enough to challenge his conscience and usual empty pockets. But then again, a god-fearing Pinoy spirit in him prevails, – so he’d rather be poor and honest for the rest of his life – than gaining riches, yet filled with guilt & shame.
The likes of this guy, indeed, is giving not just his brothers on-duty, but the corrupt government leaders of ours A REAL LESSON ON DEPENDABLE AND HONEST SERVICE.
He did it so well. May his tribe increase.
