With a barely 30 men the station had and with her courage and presence of mind, Cop Chief Galvez were able to drive the rebels away after an hour of real gun-fighting.

Her undaunted staunch in real danger situation, in spite that they were outnumbered by the NPAs, strengthened the fighting spirit of her men.

"The police station must be defended at all cost. The communist rebels must not be given opportunity to enter the police station," she said in a phone interview by a national news agency.

Galvez had been exposed to a combat scenario twice, but not with a more than a hundred attackers to face. Her mettle, her presence of mind had worked well with her.

As a chief, after a few minutes that the rebels withdrew from the scene, she checked her men for casualties and only to find out two of her men were wounded. And civilian named Salvador Ralla, Jr. who used to be their errand boy for number of years, was lone fatality.

The police men in Trenton, Agusan del Sur were trapped and surrounded by the rebels. They were fighting for their lives. They were able to defend their station because of their woman chief who was courageous and maintained her presence of mind for that threatening situations at hand.

Galvez, a former classroom teacher, assumed the Trento Police Station chief last April, barely 3 months. It was a baptism of fire for Galvez since she held the position of chief of police since 2008 as an officer.

She was not afraid to defend her station from aggressors, but she was scared to leave her daughter. Thus she must do everything to spare her life for her 2-year old daughter.
