allowed. >> reporter: investigators say arbery was out jogging in february of last year when he was chased down, shot, and killed. the men said they thought arbery was a burglary suspect and shot him in self-defense. police arrested the shooter, travis mcmichael, his father gregory mcmichael, and their neighbor william "roddie" bryan, the man who recorded the video. >> i'm hoping that even though we have 11 whites and one black, that they will be able to review all evidence and come without a guilty verdict. >> reporter: this trial is expected to last several weeks. the mcmichaels and roddie bryan are also facing federal hate crime charges in a case that will head to court early next year. norah? >> omar villafranca, thank you. a warning from the faa. get unruly on a plane and you could face not just a fine, but criminal prosecution. that's right. 37 cases were submitted to the fbi for criminal review. that's out of more than 5,000
incidents of bad behavior reported this year. many cases involved face mask regulations, and this week prosecutors charged a california man with punching a flight attendant in the face during an american airlines flight just last month. well, tonight there is promising news about a vaccine aimed at preventing cervical cancer, which kills more than 4,000 women this the u.s. every year. researchers in britain say the rate of cervical cancer in women who were vaccinated between the ages of 12 and 13 was 87% lower than it was among women who were not vaccinated. let's bring in cbs news chief medical correspondent dr. jon lapook. and john, hpv, it is the most commonly sexually transmitted infection. how important is it to get this vaccine? >> it's very important. and as you point out, norah, it's extremely prevalent type of infection. fortunately, about 90% of the time the infection resolves on its own. but in that other 10%, the virus can stay inside you and end up causing cancer. so the hypothesis was if you can prevent that virus in the first place, you can prevent cervical cancer from developing.
and in fact they're showing today in fact it does. >> wow, a vaccine that prevents cancer. it's just terrific. and of course hpv vaccine recommended for children at ages 11 or 12, even as young as 9. what's the idea behind giving it so early? >> well, there are two reasons. one thing is it's not a treatment, it's a prevention. so you have to give it before somebody is sexually active. and also, it turns out that this vaccine works better, it elicits a stronger immune response when it's given at a younger age. and it's not just for girls, norah, it's for boys too. boys cannot only get infected and spread it to girls, but they themselves can develop cancer of the tongue, of the tonsils and the genital region. imagine we have all these vaccines that can prevent all these deadly childhood illnesses and now we have a vaccine that can prevent cancer. >> researchers calling this historic. dr. jon lapook, thank you. and it's still autumn, but for 30 milon people from oklahoma to washington, d.c., it fels more like winter. tonight frost alerts are posted

the tiny persian gulf kingdom has played an oversized role in helping more than 70,000 people flee from afghanistan since the u.s. withdrawal nearly two months ago. it's in stark contrast to the chaos that followed immediately after the taliban seized power and the desperate scenes of afghans trying to flee, some losing their lives. in one of the many paradoxes of the new afghanistan, also boarding this flight to the qatari capital doha are senior members of the taliban government, including the interim foreign minister amir khan metaki, who stopped to talk exclusivably cbs news in his first interview. is the taliban prepared to have full relationship with the united states? he says we want a positive relationship with the world, including the u.s., but we will not accept the military presence of my country. we only welcome diplomatic and economic ties. >> there are so many afghans on this flight who are leaving.
what is your message to afghans who want to leave? "if they want to leave, they can leave," he says. "in our government, all afghans, whether theyr disagree lifree." but after just two months in power, the taliban has already stripped away basic freedoms, including barring most women from going to work and forbidding girls over the age of 12 from going to school. after 20 years of war, the group it seems hasn't changed very much, which is why so manifesto of afghanistan's best and brightest are leaving. i'm imtiaz tyab at the kabul airport. >> thousands of afghan refugees are making a new home here in the u.s., and they're getting a helping hand from people they've never met. a small group of military spouses began collecting donated furniture and household items for the families. nw that group has grown into a movement with more than a thousand volunteers, and it turns out these military moms know a thing or two about

>> two days later they called and said we're out of food. i never got my social security card. my daughter is sick. i don't know where to go. the needs started coming one after the next, and we were problem solving very much on the fly. >> reporter: martin says the caseworkers assigned to help the families were overloaded. she and a handful of volunteers started working the phones, trying to make calm out of chaos. >> thank you. >> true military style. a standard operating procedure. we made a manual, put our brains together. what have you all figured out? >> reporter: tens of thousands of people from afghanistan have come to the u.s. since the taliban took over. abdul hasib, his wife and three children arrived here the same day kabul fell. >> i can't express the feeling at that time that i'm losing everything that i have made for a long time for years. my home, my family, my job, everything, you know. it was very difficult at that time. >> reporter: he worked as an interpreter for an american military contractor in
afghanistan. what do you think it would be like if you didn't have their help? >> i can't think how it would be, because we didn't know the transportation. we didn't know how we can get the apartment. where to find groceries. we couldn't bring anything with us. >> reporter: martin and her team helped delawar enroll their two children from school and worked with him on his resume. he said the warm welcome helped give him hope. >> these people are such great people. i didn't know them before, but i feel like i know them for years. >> reporter: martin has turned the facebook group into a nonprofit called react dc, with thousands more afghans waiting in limbo around the world and eventually heading here to the u.s., she says helping isn't a sprint, it's a marathon. >> it's kind of walk the walk moment. have i two kids, and it's about what are you going to show them?
what kind of life are you going to show them? are you just going to tell them to be good people, you know, and serve your community? or are you actually going to go out and do it? >> >> reporter: debra alfarone, alexandria, virginia. the ongoing pandemic has spurred a lot of people to retire. that's left thousands of jobs unfilled. a retired marine has volunteered for a new mission dedicated to neighborhood kids. >> reporter: if anyone has earned a coffee break, it's 63-year-old mike mason of midlothian, virginia. mike served his country, first as a captain in the marines. >> mike mason from the fbi. >> reporter: and later as the number four man at the fbi. >> good afternoon. >> reporter: mike left the bureau in 2007, went under work as an executive at a fortune 500 company, and then the chief operating officer of this rocking chair. but mike says retirement did not sit well with him. >> i still had a mind, and i
still had things i thought i was capable of doing. >> reporter: but if mike was going to start a new chapter, he knew it would have to be something really important, a job with a big payout, worthy of his time. so in the end, the choice was clear. >> how you doing? >> hi! >> reporter: from top of the fbi to head of the bus. mike mason may be the most overqualified school bus driver in america. >> when i gave them my resume, i actually got called by a very senior person. just checking. why do you want to be a bus driver? and i told him. >> reporter: mike had heard the chesterfield county public school district was down 125 drivers, part of a national crisis. in fact, more than half the school districts in america are reporting severe driver shortages. so mike stepped up and went all. in i mean, this guy actually waxes his bus. why? >> because that's just how i roll.
>> reporter: this is the marines coming back. >> it is. but i think this is important work. i do. >> reporter: do you sincerely believe that what you're doing today is as important as what you were doing at the fbi? >> i do. i think in our society, we need to get next to the idea that there are no unimportant jobs. i mean, what could be more important than the attention we pay to our education system? >> reporter: so you continue to advance in your career? >> that's exactly right. i'm paid a lot less, but i continue to advance in my career. yes, indeed. >> reporter: as for the salary, mike says he already donated all of what he expects to make this year, more than $30,000 to various charities. but of course the much bigger gift is far less tangible. mike mason had climbed to the highest level, but by stepping back down to the bottom rung, he is giving us the greatest leadership of all, leadership by example. >> all right. see you later. >> reporter: steve hartman on the road in midlothian, virginia.
