Puerto Rican veteran of the Korean War finally awarded Bronze Star

Puerto Rican veteran of the Korean War finally awarded Bronze Star

Repeating Islands

A Puerto Rican retiree who served in some of the bloodiest battles of the Korean War received a belated appreciation Friday from the U.S. military, receiving one of the Army’s highest service medals as part of an effort to find and honor surviving veterans of the conflict before it is too late—the Associated Press reports.

Luis Ramos was presented with a Bronze Star for serving as a radioman, a highly vulnerable job that required him to be in the thick of combat, as the Puerto Rico-based 65th Infantry Regiment fought Chinese and North Korean troops from 1950 until the conflict came to a stalemate in 1953.

Ramos, now 89 and living with his wife in Coral Springs, Florida, was pleased with the recognition despite the delay, which is not that uncommon among veterans of the Korean War, in which more than 36,000 U.S. military personnel died.

“I feel very proud, and very glad,” Ramos told The Associated Press after the ceremony at…

Couple finds medieval well hidden beneath sofa

A retired civil servant living in Plymouth, England, recently decided to figure out once and for all why there was a dip in the floor underneath his sofa. After three days of work, and much to his amazement, he discovered that the house he had been living in for the past 25 years was built on top of a 33 foot medieval well dating back to the 16th century. Donna Bowater of the Telegraphreports:

Mr Steer managed to excavate it using a rope to carry out the debris with the help of a friend before discovering an old sword.

“It was hidden at a 45 degree angle and sort of just fell out. It looks like an old peasant’s fighting weapon because it appears to be made up of bits of metal all knocked together,” he added.

The demise of Darrell Lea

Aussie chocolate shop chain Darrell Lea today shut down all the remaining stores.

After earlier announcing a big restructure and the closure of some stores, Aussie chocolate shop chain Darrell Lea today shut down all the remaining stores.  They have been around since 1927 so this is a big change in the Australian chocolate landscape.  Their rocklea road and easter eggs were always super popular. The factory will keep running and they will continue to sell through their other partners – usually newsagents, lottery shops etc.

Now I need to figure out my closest outlet to get my hands on their Caramel Snow Bar!
