Filipino Crew of MT Diamond Champ

Employer:   Pobar Marine Services, Inc.
5/F Ermita Center Bldg., Ermita, Manila

While most vessels in the vicinity were washed ashore, the Filipino crew of M.T. Diamond Champ had demonstrated extraordinary prudence and gallantry in keeping their ship safe from a raging tsunami that hit the port area of Sendai, Japan on 11 March 2011.  Faced with imminent danger, the crew risked their lives (they could have abandoned it) in getting their oil tanker vessel underway at sea to protect the environment from massive oil spills.
