Coron Mayor Jerry Barracoso is proud to be descended from a living Palawan hero.

On Facebook, Barracoso gave a virtual snappy salute to his Uncle Jessie, or 102-year old World War II Veteran 3LT Jesus Barracoso.

The Palawan Liberation Task Force recently honored the veteran soldier for his role in liberating Palawan from the Japanese forces during World War II.

It’s a legacy that not only brings pride to his family, but is something that the whole province of Palawan continues to benefit from.

It’s no wonder that the Coron Mayor is very proud of his uncle, who is the spitting image of his own father.

We thank you for your service, sir!

“I salute you Uncle Jessie! We’re so proud of you. God bless. Kamukhang kamukha mo si Papang. #WorldWar2Veteran #NakipaglabanParaSaPalawan #NakipaglabanSaMgaHapon,” the mayor posted on Facebook.
