2016 has been a year of different trends and viral challenges that took over the internet.
One of these is the #MannequinChallenge. And so, before the year ends, our very own Filipino soldiers did their spin on this. A few days ago, the First Scout Ranger Regiment, a special operations command unit of the Philippine Army that specializes in anti-guerrilla jungle warfare, posed and paused for the challenge at Camp Tecson, San Miguel, Bulacan.

Contrary to what most Mannequin challenges are about, this version made by the Scout Rangers enabled us to catch a glimpse of what their regular days look like – gunfights, danger, fallen mates, team work, bravery and courage. On the other hand, it also allowed us to see the soldiers’ lighter side as individuals who also seek fun and happiness despite the struggles and threats they face on field.
