Today 00:36 GMT

The scene is in a movie called “Thank You for Your Service,” which opens Oct. 27 and is based on a book I wrote about Adam Schumann, a now 36-year-old veteran whom I met in 2007 when I was reporting on the Iraq War.

It went on for a while, and it was all for a man who was now looking around in confusion, wondering what he had ever done in his life to be so deserving.

In 1873, the same year the Metropolitan Branch of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad was completed, Charles M. Keyes subdivided part of his 185-acre farm and created Linden.

Many of D.C. youth who go missing are runaways. The city is trying to help.

Today 00:35 GMT

Though, according to police, the posts didn’t signify an uptick in missing youth, the public outcry that followed led Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) to pledge more resources toward the city’s missing youth.

Japan election: Shinzo Abe's party likely to seize control in lower house

Today 00:35 GMT

 Voting in a general election started Sunday that would most likely hand Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's right-wing ruling coalition a victory and possibly close to a two-thirds majority in parliament.

The Democratic Party had imploded and its more liberal members, led by former top government spokesman Yukio Edano, launched yet another group, the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan, whose focus on grassroots democracy, pacifist principles and calls for "decent" politics is now outpolling the Party of Hope.

One shot shows the family in the master bedroom, Kaleb resting on the bed, shirt pulled up around his neck to reveal his buff chest and tattoos, while Kordale stands in the foreground, balancing their youngest child, now aged one, on his shoulder.

When Kordale and Kaleb casually posted a selfie to Instagram in January 2014, in which they captured a morning ritual of brushing their daughters’ hair for school, they created the kind of viral moment that advertisers spend tens of thousands of dollars concocting, often without result.

Australian airport security rules target baggage handlers

Today 00:36 GMT

Australian Transport Minister Darren Chester on Sunday announced that airport workers in the country will be subjected to explosives tests and additional checks under new measures aimed at bolstering security at airports after a failed attempt to smuggle an explosive device onto a plane.

Australians would be shocked to learn that "those who have access to aircraft – the baggage handlers, caterers and everyone else who can have access to an aircraft – aren't screened or are only screened on a random basis," said Xenophon.

Astros Shove Aside the Yankees and Head to the World Series

Today 00:35 GMT

That long view was largely absent on Saturday night when the Yankees’ season came to a disheartening end with a 4-0 loss to the Houston Astros, who will face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.

If the Yankees, months ago, had been offered one do-or-die game to advance to the World Series, Headley said, there was not a player in the clubhouse who would have rejected the proposition. It was a reminder of the team’s modest goals at the start of this season, when General Manager Brian Cashman was simply hoping that his promising young players would gain maturity in 2017 and move a step closer to being a dynamic club down the road.

The race to escape Redwood Valley: 'Everyone out of the car! We need to run'

Today 00:36 GMT

The escape from Redwood Valley began with no evacuation orders, no reverse-911 alerts, no warning whatsoever from authorities.

The Redwood Valley Fire Department, including a volunteer who lived across the street, had been sent to a fire in neighboring Potter Valley that erupted an hour before. Embers and spot fires leapfrogged the valley floor and up the west ridge, and at 1 a.m., the flame front was moving down the other side — toward the 1,730 residents of Redwood Valley.
