Female West Point Cadet Busted With Smart Phone Marching In Formation [VIDEO]

Kids today, geez! Well, this incident has bigger ramifications and reactions than just your average "person/kid looking down at phone" story. Though she has not been identified as of this writing, this West Point cadet has a lot of explaining to do after she was caught on video looking down at her phone while marching in formation to the academy's graduation ceremony. Check the 50-second mark, I'm speechless.

The Lost Art Of Handwritten Notes [VIDEO]

If you know me, you know I love my football. High school, college, pros, it doesn't matter to me, as long as there's something going down on the gridiron. So, naturally, I follow a lot of people in the sports world on social media. One of those people is Texas Tech Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury. Sure, he is painfully handsome and seems like the coolest guy ever, but he's pretty much an offensive mastermind and that's where the real attraction comes into play. In a football sense, of course. (Wink, wink)

Lots of my friends share photos of their Christmas gifts on Facebook.  But this one really caught my attention, stood out and made me want to salute.  Jennifer Blair's son, Kaleb, is a Marine.  Naturally, through the years, Jennifer collected a variety of "Marine Mom" shirts to show immense pride in the work her son is doing for our country and to demonstrate the vast support he and his fellow troops have at home.  Well, this Christmas, Jennifer's staff collected those shirts and found an amazing and touching way to showcase them.  It's the Marine Mom Quilt.  Check it out!

Carsyn Gets Awesome Surprise From The Thunderbirds

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds are just the gift that keeps on giving! They were awesome in the Owensboro Air Show, showed great respect by dedicating their show to two fallen Tri-State soldiers and were more than welcoming to Chad when he had the pleasure of a flight ride-along with them in an F-16 and this last little thing is just the icing on the cake!

Carsyn's 1st grade class has a writing journal that they randomly write entries in throughout each month. I noticed when her August journal came home, her last entry was a picture of the Thunderbirds. Naturally, I thought it was precious, ha! I sent it to our public relations contact for them, as one last "Thank You" for them being here in town. Well, she thought it was precious too and said she wanted to send something special for Carsyn. I never expected this...
