Max Armstrong talks about Veterans Day, grain bag utilization this year, a plane crash in Iowa, a football game mishap and flu shots.

It's the official Veterans Day holiday today, so the post office is closed, and possibly some banks.

Grain storage bags are being used more this season. We've seen a lot of them flying over Missouri, Iowa and Illinois.

A pilot had a heart attack while flying over Iowa last weekend, the plane crashed and all four on board died.

A Tennessee Titans football fan fell from the stands yesterday, while reaching for a free t-shirt.

If you're a veteran, there are still places offering free meals for veterans today, as we officially observe the holiday.

We're reminded each year about flu shot misunderstandings.
