The Borinqueneers receive U.S. Congressional Gold Medal on April 13! WASHINGTON ??? On Wednesday, April 13, leaders of the U.S. House and Senate presented a Congressional Gold Medal in honor of the 65th Infantry Regiment, known as the Borinqueneers, for its pioneering military service, devotion to duty, and many acts of valor in the face of adversity. The 65th Infantry is a Puerto Rican regiment of the United States Army that bravely fought and served the U.S. during times of combat, including World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. For its extraordinary service to the nation in the Korean War, the Regiment earned nine Distinguished Service Crosses, approximately 250 Silver Stars, over 600 Bronze Stars, and more than 2,700 Purple Hearts. Congressman Pedro Pierluisi (D-PR) and Congressman Bill Posey (R-FL) of Florida, who worked together to draft and secure House passage of the bill to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the Regiment, spoke at the event. So, too, did Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who led the parallel effort in the U.S. Senate. In addition, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took part in the bipartisan, bicameral ceremony. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest civilian honor the United States Congress can bestow. In accordance with Public Law No: 113-120, a single gold medal has been struck to honor the 65th Infantry Regiment, the Borinqueneers for its valor, determination, and bravery displayed during the Korean War. The ceremony took place on April 13, 2016, at 3:00 PM ET in Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol, and is available for viewing on CSPAN. Prior to the ceremony, the Borinqueneers Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony National Committee held wreath presentations the Tomb of the Unknown, the World War II Memorial, and the Korean War Memorial. A National Awards Reception followed the unveiling ceremony.

Tamiya launched a new set of figures for WWII fans, this set of highly realistic figures and accessories recreates Luftwaffe personnel assigned to the Africa Corps.

About Luftwaffe units in the Africa Corps

Rommel's Africa Corps included a number of Luftwaffe anti-aircraft units, equipped with 88mm guns used not only in ground-to-air situations but also in engagements with enemy armor such as Matildas and M3 Grants. The units' teamwork was a constant boon for the Africa Corps, whether the enemy was airborne or a land vehicle.


About the Uniform

Both Army and Luftwaffe troops in North Africa received tropical uniform. The Luftwaffe version had a large pocket over the left knee, and other small differences. The sand-colored cloth was lighter than the Army equivalent, but faded rapidly in the sweltering heat, leading to many different shades.

Hobbylink Japan already have it in $9.10

Here some history:

Completed in 1911 the Gangut was the first battleship in the Imperial Russian Navy. A total of four Gangut class battleships had their keel laid and were completed in Saint Petersburg. The armour protection extended over most of the hull and also the relatively small superstructure. The two central turrets of the main armament could only be deployed laterally. The Gangut class battleships were intended for use on the Baltic Seas and were therefore specially fitted with an ice-breaker bow. The expensive battleships were rarely used during World War I in order not to jeopardize them. They came into the hands of the revolutionaries after the outbreak of the Russian Revolution. All the ships were renamed after the end of the Russian Civil War. The Gangut was renamed Oktjabrskaja Revoljuzija - October Revolution.
