Real hero’s son finally speaks out that his father is the hero of Bessang Pass not the late dictator.
Real hero’s son, Manuel Rigor, spoke to share the story that reveals that his father is the real hero of Bessang Pass – a title claimed by the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr.
For years, all the claims of the late dictator Marcos Sr. that gives him the privilege to be buried at Libingan ng mga Bayani were being studied thoroughly. Both sides, those who are in favor and those who are against his interment at LNMB, were very eager to prove things.
One of the claims is that Marcos Sr. was the hero of Battle of Bessang Pass. He has been known as the pass’ hero for years. Periodicals and his biography claimed it. But recently, one man proved it false in his talk with ABS-CBN.
He was Manuel Rigor, son of Col. Conrado Rigor Sr. who was said to be the real hero of Bessang Pass. According to the interview, Col. Rigor is the major who handled the Bessang Pass for six months.
