NAVY VETERAN HONORED AMONG AVIATION GREATS TWO YEARS AFTER HARROWING SOUTHWEST AIRLINES FLIGHT Retired Southwest Airlines pilot Tammie Jo Shults has taken her place next to some of the giants of human flight, including Buzz Aldrin, Charles Lindbergh and Howard Hughes, after being inducted Thursday into the International Air & Space Hall of Fame in San Diego.
ARMY BEATS NAVY 15-0 AT MICHIE STADIUM Singing the Alma Mater second never felt quite like this for Army. These Black Knights accomplished something never before done in the history of their rivalry with Navy: Beating the Midshipmen at West Point.
CHINESE AMERICANS WHO SERVED IN WWII HONORED BY CONGRESS Seventy-five years after World War II ended, Congress is honoring thousands of Chinese Americans who served the United States in the war, earning citations for heroism — including the Medal of Honor — despite the discrimination that included limits on numbers allowed in the U.S.
Last week we asked whom you were pulling for in the Army vs Navy Game. 53.2% of you said Army, 34% said Navy, and 12.8% said they were indifferent.
This week we want to know: When do you do your holiday shopping?
