Clear Creek veterans recently honored local Daryl Betts a month after he was recognized by the consul general of South Korea for his service in the Korean War.

Betts and other Korean War veterans from Colorado received the Ambassador for Peace Medal on Dec. 21 from the consulate, which represents South Korea, and Betts was recognized again by the Idaho Springs American Legion.

The Ambassador for Peace Medal is given by South Korea to U.S. soldiers who served in the Korean War.
