MANILA, Philippines- Kabilang ang isang Pilipino na bahagi ng US Navy sa mga nominado sa Naval Medical Forces Pacific (NMFP) 2021 award.

Isa si Petty Officer 1st Class Sonny Pau Soriano na nagtatrabaho bilang isang hospital corpsman sa NMRTC Bremerton sa 13 finalists na nominado para sa parangal mula sa 548 class petty officer billets sa 13 iba’t ibang NMFP commands, ayon sa Navy Office of Community Outreach ng US Navy.

Nasa sampung taon nang nanunungkulan si Soriano sa US Navy, ayon sa isang blog post ng Navy Office of Community Outreach.

Nauna rito, nagtrabaho siya bilang isang medical representative para sa isang pharmaceutical company sa Pilipinas.

“Those opportunities started my passion to help people. Once I got to the United States, I made my ultimate goal to be able to serve a greater purpose for my family and the community,” paglalahad ni Soriano.

“Although ancillary services do not directly treat patients, the opportunity to listen to their stories, empathize with them and treat them with dignity and respect makes them feel good of who they are and helps them with their situation,” patuloy niya.

Inanunsyo ng NMFP ang 2022 NMFP Senior Sailor of the Year sa seremonya sa Naval Base San Diego nitong Abril 13.

Hospital Corpsman 1st Class David Lay, with Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command Pearl Harbor, was named as this year’s winner.

“The Navy contributes to national defense by protecting our national interests, the country and the people through our unique capabilities on land, sea and air,” ani Soriano.

“Serving in the Navy for me means protecting the nation, the community and the people [I] love,” dagdag pa niya.

Tubong San Jose si Soriano at nagtapos ng high school noong 1999.

“Being in my hometown during my time in the Navy helped me be more resilient and able to adapt to situations that are not always favorable for me and my family,” sabi niya. “These lessons pushed me to work harder, dream bigger and believe that there is nothing impossible if you put in the work.” RNT/SA
