Russian Army Sings ‘Barbie Girl’ [Video]

Why are these Russian Army recruits singing 'Barbie Girl', the 1997 hit by the Swedish group Aqua?

I have no idea, but if they were coming toward me in battle singing that, I would die laughing, so maybe it's strategic.

This High School Phys Ed Class From The ’60s Is Harder Than Your Workout [Video]

If you're as old as me, you may remember the President's Council on Physical Fitness. The program, a project of President John F. Kennedy, established benchmarks for the physical fitness of high school students nationwide. If you could get hit their standards, you would receive a medal. Few did. Why? Because it was difficult.

This video shows you a typical workout for a phys ed class in California. Unless you're doing CrossFit, you're not matching what these kids could do.

Every generation has that day: The day something tragic happens that we all remember.

The last three biggies, from my perspective, were Dec. 7, 1941; Nov. 22, 1963; and Sept. 11, 2001.

True Story Of World War I Christmas Truce Becomes Heartwarming Ad [Video]

On Christmas Day 1914, British and German forces embattled in fierce trench warfare against each other in France declared an unauthorized truce. They met in what was called "no man's land" between the battle lines and drank and played soccer, sharing photos of each other's loved ones.

When the day was over, they went back to killing each other.

That day has been brought to life on its 100th anniversary in a heartwarming Christmas ad for a British supermarket chain.

What Is A Veteran?

Veteran's Day will once again feature parades and fanfare for those who have served our country.

But the rest of the year, veterans seem to slip in among us and go about their daily business, even though what they did may have had a significant impact on their life and the lives of those around them.

This tribute seeks to rectify that.

Classic Cars And Hell, Michigan!

I have 2 very fond memories of the Ford Pinto. The little compact made from 1971 to 1980 by Ford was a death wish. I remember Ralph Nader showing the cars exploding on TV, and I remember riding from Kalamazoo to Midland with my Cousin Wendy, and wonder how WE didn't die!

Army Spec. Mitchell Oliver Visits for Fourth of July Week Leave Through Fly A Soldier Home [Video]

U.S. Army Spec. Mitchell Oliver is currently back home in Greenville, spending a 17-day leave that includes the Independence Day weekend thanks to an unexpected assist.

The 20-year-old soldier flew home June 21 to heartwarmingly -- and unsuspectingly for his mother -- see his parents, Deann and Gary Oliver, at Gerald R. Ford International Airport. He arrived with a welcoming reception from Blue Star Mothers of America and Patriot Guard Riders.

Army Spec. Mitchell Oliver Returns to Hometown of Greenville Through Fly A Soldier Home This Summer [Photos]

Deann Oliver greeted an unexpected soldier Saturday.

In helping welcome home returning U.S. military personnel at Gerald R. Ford International Airport, she was doing a supportive shift with fellow Blue Star Mothers of America members and Patriot Guard Riders. A handful of families had already been reunited with loved ones when her eyes fell on someone she wasn’t expecting to see until at least next week: U.S. Army Spec. Mitch Oliver. It was her son.

Deann shrieked with delight, clutching into her knees just beyond Gate B as others in two greeting lines, many holding and waving American flags, clapped, smiled and cried tears of joy. Also beaming was Mitch, who had a bouquet of red roses for his mother snuck to him by his father, Gary Oliver.

He was flown in through Fly A Soldier Home This Summer, a contest sponsored by Ed Koehn Automotive Group in conjunction with Classic Hits 98.7 WFGR and affiliated stations 97.9 WGRD, Channel 95.7 (WLHT), 100.5 The River (WTRV) and 1410 AM The Touch (WNWZ).
