MANILA, Philippines — As the nation celebrated Father’s Day, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana reminded the children of soldiers to always be good as their fathers remain stationed at the frontlines.

Lorenzana said he knows the hardships of being away from his children as he served 29 years in the military.

“Tuwing Father’s Day, pray for your parents na walang mangyari sa kanilang masama,” Lorenzana said in a video message. “Be good para hindi na magkaroon pa ng problema ang mga tatay. Alam ko, dahil ako nanggaling sa trabahong ‘yan, araw-araw, gabi-gabi iniisip ko ang pamilya ko.”

Lorenzana was interviewed by children of personnel of the Department of National Defense in a video posted on its social media page for Father’s Day.
