8:00 am
good morning everyone. i'm tamron hall. this is "newsnation." right now solemn ceremonies are underway on the haground of arlington national cemetery. these are live pictures marking this veteran's day. you see vice president joe biden prepared to lay a wreath on the tomb of the unknown. containing the names of unknown service-members killed. let's listen in. ♪ ♪
8:01 am
8:02 am
8:03 am
♪ [ playing of "taps" ] ♪
8:04 am
again, we're watching another solemn ceremony remembering those who have given their lives for this country and those who continue to fight right now for this country. the liberties and privileges we have as americans they protect.
8:05 am
joe biden will speak at the ceremony in the memorial amp theater. the vice president is standing in for president obama who is attending a global summit in china. the ceremonies at arlington are one of the diretributes nationw. as we wait the vice president's remarks. let me bring in msnbc military analyst and med tal of honor recipient for his rehoeic actions during the vietnam war. helping families of service-members. thank you both for joining us. we appreciate it. colonel, we have a pleasure of speaking with you. i want to start with linda here. because of the work that she's doing to help these families. as we remember the veterans. i was on the "today" show. the plaza filled men and women in uniform and those who have
8:06 am
worn the uniforms before. there were just as many proud spouses and children. your organization is done a lot to support those people. >> yes, our military kids proudly supporting the children of our deployed and wounded warriors. sometimes their needs are overlooked and i think it's very important for our military men and women who are serving to know that our nation is helping to take care of their children while they protect our families. >> you said sometimes their needs are overlooked on this day of remembrance and this day of thanks to those individuals. what do you see as the most commonly ignored or i guess something many might take for granted that those service-members and their families need. >> they just need to know that our nation appreciates the service and sacrifice they make
8:07 am
while their family member in uniform is serving. whether it's deployed overseas or recoverying from injury. children need to know we recognize they are sacrificing and that we need to help support those families to make their families have as much a normal life as they can. during that stressful time. >> our military kids over the past ten years has given out some $20 million in grants to help military children in extracurricular supports and other activities that give them a release from stress. colonel jack, let me bring you in. we've seen more than ever before, perhaps certainly not enough. more organizations like our military kids who are trying to find small ways and big ways to help these families. and you think about it, i'm sure when you were a young soldier, many of these things did not
8:08 am
exist. >> yeah. and there's a reason for that. back almost 50 years ago when i first came into the army almost no soldiers were married. i had senior noncommission officers living in the barracks, taking care of soldiers. we did that. but there were few families to take care of. now we have an older cohort of troops. we have lots and lots of troops who are marry whod have families. we do a much better job than we used to, in my case. it used to be when you got deployed you left as an individual. you went to a unit overseas and fought. you left your family at home. whether or not they did well was up to them. you had to find a place for them to live and so on. we don't do that anymore. families remain behind in the military community where they can be cared for. he comes back to his family in the community and there are lots of organizations like linda's
8:09 am
doing good work to take care of family and the troops. >> when he said he comes back you mean men and women. you have an incredible number of single moms, in some cases, who are part of the military. you have grandparents and siblings who care for their children during their deployment. >> yeah, it's -- we have extended families as well. and the fact that we have women in fairley substantial numbers in the service now means that we have changed the way in which we deal with people generally. we're much better at it than ever before. in thank you for your service. linda, thank you for all you do for the families. we're going to continue to watch the developments and certainly bring you the vice president's remarks. we're expecting them to begin in about 20 minutes from now. thank you, both. the i want to turn to the deadly arctic blast continuing to affect millions of people. parts of minnesota, wisconsin, and other upper midwest states are getting another round of
8:10 am
snow just in morning. officials are urging drivers to be cautious of black ice after hundreds of accidents were reported yesterday. in minnesota alone, 400 accidents were reported. one of them fatal. that state along with much of the upper midwest and rookies woke up under a blaj et of snow. more than 500 flights were cancelled. most of those in minneapolis, saint paul, and chicago airports. dozen of flights have been cancelled this morning. while the snow and ice is expected to tamper off by tomorrow morning, the arctic temperatures just beginning to settle in in much of the country. mike seidel joins us in minnesota where people are digging out. some of the temperatures, as i mentioned, pretty shocking for this time of the year. >> reporter: they are, tamron. you get to parts of montana and wyoming. we have temperatures below zero. windchills below zero.
8:11 am
it's going to get colder. we're running in the low 20s. i want do you to keep in mind, it's only mid november. typically mid 40s for highs. mid 20s for low. we're running a solid 20 degrees below average through of the rest of the week and the weekend we'll see highs that may not get out of the teen and likely drop below zero. look at the roads. much improved. they don't mess around. these guys are professional. a lot of salt being thrown down. the snow now ended. we have sunshine and traffic and everything is open. a lot of schools did go in two hours late. very few cancelled schools today. a lot of schools -- the minneapolis public schools opened up yesterday. now the cold air is heading south. the front is now south of dallas. this morning we have about a 40 degree temperature difference across the state of illinois. same kind of deal as you head toward arkansas. if you're in the mild air now, in the 60s, 70s today in those
8:12 am
areas it is not going to last very long. you'll see the temperature drop very quickly. one thing that is not going to hit the rest of the country is the snow. that's really relegated just here to the upper midwest and the great lakes. but they're wondering how bad is it going to be this winter? i can tell you for the next two weeks in minneapolis saint paul likely not above freezing. >> thank you very much. we appreciate it. meteorologist bill karins joins me now. bill, mike made a great point. places like chicago, minnesota they know how to clean up snow. that's one thing. but you can't clean up -- but you can't clean up cold. >> nope. >> you have to deal with it. >> they are going to deal with it the next two weeks. who is next? we keep hearing it's spreading. the snow is ending in northern wisconsin. we're done with the fluffy stuff. we mentioned texas. dallas a windchill of 30. we saw the door open from dan data and all the cold air is driven all the way to the deep south.
8:13 am
now it's about going as far south as it's going to go. it's spreading to the pacific northwest is unusual. all the way to portland. they could get some icy snow and sleet mix. st. louis your dramatically. cold front went through chicago. it turned into a cold rain. it's going to get windy and the temperatures will plummet there. anywhere from chicago to the great lakes today. if i had to pick a spot for the worst weather in the country tomorrow we get upslope flow in denver will have a high of 11 degrees. that's height temperature. the windchill will be about minus 15 with some very, very light, fine, fluffy snow around the area. so you can see the denver does warm up a little bit. other areas like chicago no warm up for you. high temperatures in the 30s throughout the next week. it's going to be difficult for the people on the ooets east coast to complain, tamron. because we're only going to drop down to about the low 40s. >> i'm not complaining. i lived in chicago for ten
8:14 am
years. >> you would never dplan. >> but i lived in chicago for ten years. that will change your blood. >> it will. 27 inches of snow. empower chan stay safe. a lot of accidents as a result of the first big storm. also developing now for the first time in months. the u.s. is ebola free. just a short time ago dr. craig spencer, the last ebola patient in this country was treated and official lly released from the hospital. he hugged the mayor of new york city. what have we learned from his case? and it comes as tens of thousands of nurses preparing to go on strike. they are demanding better gear and training as the fight -- as they are the front lines in the fight for ebola. a wave of protests across the country. we'll have the latest. tense moments president obama and putin came face to face three times today at the asia-pacific summit in china.
8:15 am
it fair to call it tense or is there something else there? we'll talk about. join our conversation online. you can find my team at "newsnation." you can find me on facebook, twitter, and instagram under my name tamron hall. why do i cook for the holidays? to share with family
8:16 am
to carry on traditions to come together, even when we're apart in stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and more, swanson® makes holiday dishes delicious! ameriprise asked people a simple question: in retirement, will you outlive your money? uhhh. no, that can't happen. that's the thing, you don't know how long it has to last. everyone has retirement questions. so ameriprise created the exclusive.. confident retirement approach. now you and your ameripise advisor can get the real answers you need. well, knowing gives you confidence. start building your confident retirement today. i have a cold. i took nyquil but i'm still stuffed up. nyquil cold and flu liquid gels don't unstuff your nose. really? alka-seltzer plus night rushes relief to eight symptoms of a full blown cold including your stuffy nose. (breath of relief) oh, what a relief it is. thanks. anytime. so i can reach ally bank 24/7, but there are24/7branches?

it's just i'm a little reluctant to try new things. what's wrong with trying new things? feel that in your muscles? yeah... i do... try a new way to bank, where no branches equals great rates.
8:18 am
as of about 30 minutes ago, the last known patient in the u.s. being treated for ebola was formally declared virus free. dr. spencer has been hospitalized in bellevue for the last 19 days. he exited the hospital to a round of applause. he thanked the staff that cared for him and said this to the public at large. >> my early detection, reporting and now recovery from ebola speaks to the effectiveness of the protocols in place for health staff returning from west
8:19 am
africa. i'm a living example of how those protocols work and early detection is critical to surviving ebola and ensuring it's not transsubmitted to others. >> it set off panic in some minds in new york after news that he traveled via subway and even wept to a bowling alley. ann thompson is outside bellevue hospital. the doctors spoke about protocols. some of the protocols that came into question when the headlines, you know, as you well know read regarding his travel before he was admitted to the hospital. >> and that's what struck me sitting in the atrium and listening to dr. spencer as well as mayor de blasio who runs new york city, and the health workers who helped dr. spencer recover. three weeks ago, there was a lot of criticism about dr. spencer because as you said, he road the subway, he went bowling. he ate at the restaurant, he
8:20 am
took an uber tax befoy by reali i had he symptoms. there was all kinds of talk about what he did in guinea to selflessly help others who were suffering from this disease. he went over as a member of doctors without borders and spent five weeks working in an ebola treatment unit there. when he came home and was diagnosed some of the guinea residents who he had treated and survived from ebola called him on his cell phone to ask if there was anything they could do for him. because he had come down with this disease. dr. spencer, many of the people who spoke remarks about his wry sense of humor. it was evident when he said my name is dr. craig spencer. but the most important thing he said today is he wants the attention to turn back to west africa where the problem exists.
8:21 am
tamron? >> ann thompson live for us in new york. thank you. fear it is won't be the last ebola case in the u.s. prompted nationwide strikes among america's register nursed. many of whom are dmantding tougher ebola precautions in hospitals. over the next 24 hours thousands of nurses will walk the picket line from the east coast to the west. it is all starting now in california where today some 18,000 r.n.s and nurse practitioners are expected to protest. they want full body hazmat suits, more training and better equipment to handle potential ebola cases. tomorrow nurses in 14 other states will join. joining us now jane roscoe. the group lobbying for change. thank you for joining us. >> glad to be here. >> i'm sure you heard the doctor's remarks at bellevue hospital praising the nursing and staff who assisted him and
8:22 am
yet again the patient is lucky enough, fortunate enough with the right care to leave a hospital ebola free. the nurses that are planning to picket still have series questions as i laid out in the introduction. we talked with you weeks ago when some of the grievances were made public. you feel nothing has changed. something has changed. i think if you talk to the nurses at bellevue, they were able to get what they needed. i think in our opinion now and what we've seen in our survey our public facilities in this country are doing a much better job. the private ones we're still having to argue about that uniform national standard that we feel should be mandated for that protective equipment for nurses. >> is that something that the cdc would need to push forward? who essentially the gate keeper, if i can describe it that way of making sure that this happens to protect the nurses?
8:23 am
>> well, therein lies the problem. we have no gate keeper. we have guidelines that come out of the cdc. hospitals look to cdc guidelines. they've been a bit confusing. they're still either/or. what we're asking for is a national template, if you will. so that uniform standard that gets mandated as far as whose job it is or who is to blame. there's a lot of blame to go around. we have written a letter to the president asking he sign an executive order that mandates the standard. and/or congress pass a legislation. that's not been done. the cdc still has the either/or type of guidelines. which we believe is actually more confusing for hospitals than to have that single set standard. >> obviously the concerns in the timing relate to ebola that it is such a deadly disease. if you're exposed to bodily fluids and such highly contagious. but i was wondering for some of the concerns were expressed
8:24 am
prior to this ebola scare. with other infectious diseases certainly we know ebola it seems as an category itself. but nurses day in and day out, i would imagine, face infectious disease that put their lives in danger. >> absolutely. and we have tried to say that over and again. it's ebola now. it's been other things before including h 1 n 1 and since. until you really listen to the people who do the actual work as too whey they feel is the best protection for them, as long as we've got somebody up above in a management position telling us what they think is best for us, you're going to have this concern. especially in a system we have in this country. >> thank you so much for your time. we'll continue to cover the protests as they start to be mentioned kicking off in california very soon here. thank you so much. we have some developing news out of missouri. jay nixon at 3:00 p.m. eastern
8:25 am
time will be holding a news conference to discuss law enforcement planning efforts in advance of a grand jury decision in the shooting of michael brown. st. louis prosecutor bob mccullough said a grand jury would come to a decision on whether to indict police officer darren wilson by mid november. we'll bring you that news conference live on msnbc. coming up. app river of hot lava overtakes a home in hawaii. it's one of the stories we're following around the "newsnation." here is a look what is happening today on veteran's day, november 11 president. the veteran i's day parade in n york city is underway. secretary hagel is the first enlisted combat veteran to lead the department of defense. and hundreds of thousands are expected for tonight's cancer for valor on the washington mall. performers include rihanna, bruce springsteen, carrie

8:30 am
president obama planning to press president putin on the issue of ukraine. the united states has opposed several rounds of sanctions against russia for the incursions into that country. white house officials saying there are no plans to impose a new round of sanctions, at least this week. they're not ruling it out in the future. relations between the united states and russia at the lowest point since the cold war. the pictures underscore the frosty relationship between the two. it's a stark contrast to the meetings with the chinese president. president obama and the chinese president had several meetings today including a walk in a garden and private dinner want to. they'll have a official meeting tomorrow. we expect to hear from both leaders after the meeting. it's part of the pivot to asia. some critics saying he hasn't followed through on attempts to

welcome back. a solemn ceremony in london this morning. the commemoration of the end of world war i. thousands of people gather at the tower of london. a sea of hand crafted crimson ceramic poppies was krurkted. exactly 880,246. one for each of the british soldiers killed in the first world war. at expectly the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month ending world war i was signed. britain observed two minutes of silence. and beginning tomorrow the thousands of volunteers who helped krurkt the sea of poppies
8:36 am
will begin dismantling it. they will be cleaned, and packed and sent to people who bought them for $40 each. today we pay tribute to our veterans here in the u.s., the new department of veteran's affair who is speaking now, has unveiled the largest restructuring of the agency's history. vice president joe biden is speaking. let's listen in. >> thank you. thank you. mr. secretary, thank you very much. the shorter time you've been in your position, people are beginning to see significant changes. you believe, as i do, we only have one truly sacred obligation. as a nation we have a lot of obligati obligations. to the young, to the old, to
8:37 am
all, the poor. there's no obligation that is truly sacred other than the commitment to our veterans. and you carry that with you for your days in west point to today. we appreciate it. to all the distinguished guests here, let me say, particularly to the gold star families. to say how much i appreciate the opportunity, the privilege of being able to speak here today. it's one of the great privileges the president and vice president has. to be able to literally speak on this sacred ground. it's the second occasion i've had in my tenure as vice president. it's a beautiful, beautiful autumn day. the sun is shining, the skies are clear, the temperature is perfect. nothing like the scorching heat, the bitter cold, and intense
8:38 am
storm that confront the many of you here today and our troops through every conflict and every age. today sunshine is nothing like the scorching heat our veterans endured while battling across the sun baked island in the pacific, in some cases, going days without water. nothing like the hardships faced by a generation of americans who waited through the rice patties and the delta in vietnam. nothing compared to the 115 degree heat as a young warrior climbed to a raft to show me how it saved his life. nothing compared to what our young men fought through in 25 degree below zero temperatures in the north korea mountain pinned down by heavy enemy fire, frozen ground 60 years ago. nothing compared to the snow and cold that hampered our forces in
8:39 am
the forest 66 years ago. one of my favorite lines is from a poem -- a play by john steinbeck east of eden. he describes to his son adam what it means to be a soldier. here is what it says. it says to his son, a soldier is the most holy of all humans because he's the most tested. the soldier must coldly learn to put himself in the way of losing his own life without going mad. if you can bring yourself to face not shadows but real death, described and recognizable by a bullet or saber, arrow or lance,
8:40 am
then you need never be afraid again. you are the veterans of america, the most trusted among us. and the most tested of all americans. collectively, you represent generations of soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coast guardsmen who have served and sacrificed for all of us. you are not only the heart and soul but you the very spine of this nation. as a nation, we pause today to thank more than 23 million surviving veterans who so bravely and faithfully protected our freedom. you gave and they gave. and you deserve a round of
8:41 am
applause. [ applause ] >> we've lost our connection. we're having some technical difficulties. let's see if we can bring back the vice president's remarks. >> to show our respect to honor and recognize our responsibility to care for all of our veterans and those who continue in harm's way as i speak to you today. since 9/11 3.5 million men and women joined the military with the certainty with knowing they would be deployed. they have over 2.6 million of this generation have been deployed to iraq and afghanistan. some have been deployed multiple times to both places. and more than half of you have
8:42 am
returned to civilian life with the honor title of veteran. the 9/11 generation took on a responsibility that extended far beyond base or battle field. they were prepared to follow bin laden to the gates of hell and they did. [ applause ] >> again, we lost our connection. ability i believe we have it back. we deeply apologize for the technical control. it's beyond our control. like so many generations before them, this generation of 9/11 warriors has paid an incredible price. every day for the past six years, i asked my staff early in the morning to contact the department of defense to get a
8:43 am
detailed report on the number of troops deployed, the number wounded, and the number killed. not a general number. the exact number. everyday. because for every one of those warriors -- >> again, it appears we lost the feed. i want you to know it's not just the feed coming into msnbc. it's a pool feed that is having technical difficulties as the vice president talking about the 3.5 million young men and women who have joined the armed services since 9/11 and 2.6 million being deployed. we know that 3,000 more will be deployed as violence in iran continues now. we do not have the vice president's connection here. but we hope to have that for you
8:44 am
as soon as possible. i think we have it now. our apologies. >> like some of you, i've seen the incredible sacrifice s sacr the intelligence, the grit, the resolve, of the young women and men. and every time -- and i've been -- if only everyone in
8:45 am
america -- understand what these warriors are doing. and no one knows better than this audience that it's not just the veteran that has been asked to sacrifice and serve, it's his or her family. his mother or father, children. especially the husbands and wives. an english poet once wrote, they also serve who only stand and wait. they also serve who only stand and wait. when our son beau, a major in the delaware national guard was deployed to iraq for a year, my wife, who is a professor would
8:46 am
leave early for school and i would get up and walk into this little kitchen in the vice president's home and without fail i would see her standing over the sink with a cup of coffee in her hand mouthing a prayer that someone gave her. you've all done that. you spouses, you moms, you dads, you children. and they're deployed there wasn't three hours that went by that think didn't cross your mind. you all know what it's like. and we owe you. we owe you as much as we owe your sons and daughters, your husbands and wives. jill points out only fewer than 1% of america's population serves in uniform. but over 99% -- more than we
8:47 am
could ever repay. it's my firm belief -- [ applause ] we have an obligation to care for and equip those who we send to war and care for them and their families when they come home. as i said earlier it's the only sacred obligation our government has. we're bound to keep it. you're absolutely remarkable, you veterans. jill and i have visited veterans in hospitals around the world multiple times. spend christmas day at reid.
8:48 am
the reason i mention that is you've had the experience i've had. walking into the room of a wounded warrior with his or her family. i always ask the same question, talk to general dempsey about th this. he's done the same. ask the same question. what can i do for you, soldier? and the answer i get almost every time is stunning. and americans should know it. and you understand it. and the answer i most often get is, mr. president, sir, can you get me back to my unit? mr. president, sir, can you get me back to my unit. i've learned so much i can help.
8:49 am
jill and i recently hosted a team of wounded warriors at our home, several hundred. as they prepare to represent the united states of america in a kpe in addition london the games for wounded warriors. it struck me that there couldn't have been a more appropriate description of the determination and commitment and the charactership by all of our veterans than these games refer to t . the both william ernst henry wrote a poem. and the last stanza of the poem says it matters not how straight the gate, how charged the punishment the scroll. i'm the master of my fate. i'm the captain of my soul.
8:50 am
i'm the master of my fate. i'm the captain of my soul. every single generation of of veterans throughout our history has been the best that this country had to offer. it's as true today as it was 200 years ago when a generation of warriors held at ft. mchenry against the might of the navy in the battle of baltimore. as the dawn's early light broke following that battle, a young lawyer named francis scott key looked towards the flag pole asking a simple question. does that star spangled banner yet wave? that question and its implications and aspirations have echoed through every perilous fight that has turned
8:51 am
what we turned to american veterans. did that star spangled banner wave in the hands of william carney, the first african-american medal of honor recipient as he took that banner from a falling comrade and charged the ram parts of ft. wagner? did that star spangled banner yet wave over observation posts that medal of honor recipient ryan pits held over the rocket-propelled grenades in afghanistan? did that star spangled banner yet wave over six marines? did that star spangled banner yet wave over american troops and trenches in france and beaches of normandy and jungles of vietnam and streets of fallujah and the valleys of afghanistan and does that star
8:52 am
spangled banner yet wave over every forward position, ship, base, woman and man deplayed in the service of our nation today? does the wave on the front porches of families weighting them out and praying for the warrior's safe return? does it wave over walter reed over bell voyeur, the center for the intrepid, the va trauma center and so many other places where american warriors continue to march to recovery? it waves in every preiss station, firehouse, business and little league field where americans serve their community while standing ready in the guard and the reserve. it waves long after their time
8:53 am
in uniform is through. and the silent vigil above the row of whitehead stones here and over there. ladies and gentlemen, francis scott key's questions persist to this day. does that star spangled banner yet wave o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? thanks to all of you veterans, to the unbroken line of warriors who answered the call, the answer generation after generation continues to be yes. now and forever. because as every adversary in every age who has ever come up against you has learned, american warriors never bend, never break, and never ever ever yield.
8:54 am
[ applause ] that's why as i tell every foreign leader i encounter, it's never ever been a good bet to bet against the united states of america because we have you. god bless you all and may god protect our troops. >> ladies and gentlemen, please rise and join the united states marine band in singing god bless america.
8:55 am
♪ god bless america ♪ land that i love ♪ stand beside her ♪ and guide her ♪ through the night with a light from above ♪ ♪ from the mountains to the prairies ♪ ♪ to the oceans white with foam ♪ ♪ god bless america ♪ my home sweet home ♪ god bless america ♪ my home sweet home >> a beautiful rendition from the marine band. a powerful and personal speech from vice president joe biden filling in for the president as he is on his tour in asia.
8:56 am
