Archeologists rediscover WWII hero's memorial marker

Archeologist Nikki Vesagas brushes the recently rediscovered memorial marker of Maria Orosa during the 75th anniversary commemoration of the bombing of Remedios Hospital on Thursday at the Malate Catholic School compound in Manila. A group of archeologists found the World War II hero’s epitaph by accident on Sunday while they were looking for a different grave. Orosa is credited with inventing banana ketchup and Soyalac.
