As a new member of the Naval Special Operations Group (NAVSOG), actor Rocco Nacino was ecstatic that he was able to join the recent activity of the group.

On Instagram, he shared that the activity was the “highlight” of his weekend.

“These are our real life heroes. Civilians with big hearts, and soldiers/ reservists who are always ready to protect and assist. Tondo may be one of our hot spots during this pandemic, but this didn’t stop good Samaritans from extending help to those who are in need,” he wrote as a caption to a series of photos taken during the relief operation.

He also congratulated PO3 Dennis Barradas of unit Team S.T.A.R.S. for spearheading the said activity; he also mentioned  Officers Col. Almoite and Captain Biola for gracing their event; then Class Matatag mates, Charles Araneta of GNC Travel and tours for sponsoring them, and lastly Brgy. 213 Chairman Bolong Sy for providing them the assistance and location for the distribution.

“Sana ay nabigyan namin ang mga residente ng Tondo, Manila ng kasiyahan nung araw na yun,” he ended his post.

“A Snappy salute to all of you!”

Note that NAVSOG is a unit of the Philippine Navy trained in special operations, sabotage, psychological and unconventional warfare.

Late last year, after he graduated from his basic civilian-military training, Rocco attended the oathtaking and official donning of ranks of the Philippine Navy as 3rd Class Petty Officer.

Meanwhile last March, the actor marked his 33rd birthday by “boosting the morale” of military personnel working amid the public health crisis by providing them food and water.
