Ron White once memorized a deck of cards in 87 seconds.

That’s every card, every suit, in every position in the deck — No. 1 through No. 52 — in less than a minute and a half. It was, at the time, an American record.

Susan Rocco starts authorizing help on a litany of pleas from wounded Iraq and Afghanistan veterans at 7 a.m. in her home north of Quantico, Va.

One is a young Marine veteran living in a shelter who needs clothing and electricity turned on so he can go back home; another is a Marine missing a leg who visits his parents but needs a ramp built to get into their house; and a third is hospitalized for attempted suicide, and his wife needs travel money to visit him.

"MiG-Killer" F-4D Gets Fresh Paint

"MiG-Killer" F-4D Gets Fresh Paint

 

The Museum of Aviation's F-4D Phantom II, tail number 66-7554, is being repainted. The aircraft arrived at the museum in the summer of 2007 after it was removed from outdoor display on a pedestal at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. Once the repainting is complete, the aircraft will go on display in Hangar One.

The markings will include two stars representing North Vietnamese MiG fighters. On February 14, 1968, pilot Major Rex D. Howerton and weapon systems officer 1st Lieutenant Ted L. Voigt of the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing, 555th Tactical Fighter Squadron used the F-4's externally mounted 20mm cannon to shoot down a Mig-17. The second star represents another MiG kill in combat that was claimed by crew members and initially confirmed. However, months after the victory, the confirmation was withdrawn. The second star appears in historical photos and will be repainted on the aircraft.

During a press conference at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on Tuesday, retired Army Sgt. Brendan Marrocco absentmindedly reached up and scratched his cheek.

The movement seemed second nature to the 26-year-old, but to those in attendance, it was a miracle.
