50 years ago this week our front page story came from Honolulu. Doctor (Lieutenant Colonel) Richard M. Chubb, son of Mr. amd Mrs. Leanard L Chubb, of route 2, Baxter Springs, was decorated with the Bronze Star Medal at Hickam AFB, Hawaii, for meritorious service while engaged in military operations against Viet Cong forces.
