Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced yesterday 100 billion dollars in cuts to the defense budget, including a major command center in Norfolk. But Charles Fishburne reports it's not a done deal, and Virginia’s Congressional delegation is allied to fight it.
Friends and family are remembering a 25-year old Harrisonburg man who was part of a medical mission team killed in Afganistan…but as Charles Fishburne reports, the Christian charity said yesterday it has no plans to leave the country, despite the murder of ten of its members.
