'Friendly fire' kills five American service members in Afghanistan 06/10/2014 'Friendly fire' kills five American service members in Afghanistan
Five American service members were killed in southern Afghanistan when a coalition jet, called in to help ward off a Taliban attack, mistakenly bombed them, an Afghan official said Tuesday.

The five were killed Monday night along with an Afghan soldier in Zabul province, said Ghulam Sakhi Roghliwanai, the province's police chief.

According to NATO, the troops were conducting a security operation. Such operations have been stepped up ahead of Afghanistan's presidential runoff election, which will take place Saturday.

Source: Possible 'manifesto' found in Las Vegas shootings 06/09/2014 Source: Possible 'manifesto' found in Las Vegas shootings
Police scouring the scenes where a couple shouting "revolution" gunned down two police officers and a civilian before killing themselves have found a possible "manifesto" among their belongings, a law enforcement official told CNN on Monday.

The official didn't disclose what's in the writings found at one of the scenes, and authorities have yet to publicly discuss a motive for Sunday's shootings at a Las Vegas pizza restaurant and outside a Walmart store.

But a police source told CNN on Sunday that the couple held extremist views toward law enforcement.

D-Day: A never-to-be-forgotten morning, 70 years ago 06/06/2014 D-Day: A never-to-be-forgotten morning, 70 years ago
Every generation has its generational markers. For those of the World War II era, December 7, 1941, stands supreme, but the events of June 6, 1944, rank a close second. Seventy years ago on that day, 156,000 Allied soldiers, supported by many more sailors, airmen and marines, embarked on the long-awaited invasion of occupied Europe. This was an Allied effort, but American fighting men bore the brunt of the combat and the resulting sacrifice.

For decades, the members of the World War II generation have remembered where they were that June morning when they heard the news that the Allies had landed in Europe. The road to victory, still to be hard, nevertheless now appeared assured.

Fellow soldiers call Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, not a hero 06/02/2014 Fellow soldiers call Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, not a hero
(CNN) -- The sense of pride expressed by officials of the Obama administration at the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is not shared by many of those who served with him -- veterans and soldiers who call him a deserter whose "selfish act" ended up costing the lives of better men.
"I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on," said former Sgt. Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl's platoon when he went missing on June 30, 2009. "Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him."
