COL JESUS VILLAMOR AIRBASE, Pasay City (DWDD) – The Philippine Air Force would like to express its profound sorrow and heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and loved ones of Filipina celebrity and PAF reservist, Ms Isabel Granada.
During this time of mourning, we, the men and women of the PAF, share the sense of grief and great loss of Ms Granada and we wish to pay tribute to this great woman who has achieved so much in her life. Sometime in 2001, the late Ms Granada was recruited by the PAF through its Direct Enlistment program.
She was temporarily assigned to the Air Force Special Service Group and was given an Air Force Specialty Code skill in recreation (volleyball). From an Airwoman, she was then promoted to Airwoman Second Class.
She spent a year as an active PAF enlisted personnel as part of the PAF Women’s Volleyball team and opted to remain as a reservist where she continued her support by willingly performing, hosting, and lending her celebrity status to draw crowd in PAF events.
Her proper demeanor, both as a celebrity and an aviation enthusiast, also contributed to the PAF’s public image by virtue of her reservist status, which she had proudly admitted.
To show our final respect to Ms Granada, we will extend a funeral honor and service for her remains as PAF’s way of demonstrating its concern for the welfare of its personnel. PAF PIO / MCAG
