Marcos Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile leaves Camp Aguinaldo and crosses EDSA to join Gen. Fidel Ramos in Camp Crame on Feb. 24, 1986. The move symbolized the shift of political and military power from the Marcos regime to Corazon Aquino, the winner of the 1986 Philippine presidential election.
Philippine Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile stands in front of the family chapel on his Makati compound. "I never really aspired to be anything in this life. I never aspired to be a hero or to be famous," he said. If I succeeded somehow, I do not know. If I failed, that is a matter for history to judge."
