the redskins quarterback will be in the shot light as the team takes on the carolina panthers. the team is handing the ball to john beck following rex grossman's not so sexy outing against the eagles. it is beck's first start and it won't be an easy one with the offensive line banged up. the defense will have a big challenge as well. they will have to stop the rookies sensation cam newton. kickoff is at 1:00. the game is away in charlotte. should be a big one. >> yeah. >> didn't look that bad in one or two possessions last stkpwhraoebg no. >> pretty good. we'll see. >> couldn't do any worse than grossman. >> they just need to get a win. that's all that matters. >> do they have a third string quarterback? >> no. >> doesn't sound good if we're talking third string anything. historic night in sports, plus a couple of big college

attack off the australian coast in two weeks. an old german satellite land odd either last night but no one knows just exactly where. it broke into as many as 30 pieces when it broke into the earth's atmosphere. this is the second to fall in the last 30 days. an old nasa satellite plummeted into the ocean on september 24th. am i correct that there's not a big threat for people below? >> no. the satellites are not like a solid rock. there are a lot of very small finely pieced together things. they don't do well coming into the atmosphere. they're moving at 14,000, 15,000 miles an hour as they come into the top of the atmosphere. as they get the thickness of the atmosphere, it causes them to break apart. the odds of a piece surviving that big are very, very slim. >> very cool.
>> very good news for everybody who didn't have to look up and worry. if you saw shooting stars, the orionids, meteor shower is taking place. you could have probably seen a couple of shooting stars late last night coming out of constellation orion. and a few more opportunities tonight if we can keep the skies clear enough. clear out there for now. chilly 45 degrees in washington. winds have gone calm. that combination of clear skies, light winds and very dry air allowed for a cold start this morning. 36 in dulles. virginia, 36. 39 in college park. 41 in camp springs, maryland. mid-30s, martinsburg, winchester, harrisonburg. nothing going on on the radar. no rain drops all that close to us. the nearest rain drops west of
indianapolis. so it's a long, dry stretch ahead for us. mostly sunny skies. a few clouds in and out later this afternoon. no chance for rain. a much prettyier looking day than yesterday. highs in the low to mid-60s again with plenty of sunshine to get the day started. mid-level clouds in the afternoon. after a chilly start, you will like the weather coming up this afternoon. great weather to get outside, have apple cider and look at pretty colored leaves. milder by yesterday by a couple degrees. near peak color on skyline drive. back to work and school tomorrow. a slight increase in the number of clouds. could get a few sprinkles southern pennsylvania and far western maryland as the weather front comes sliding in our general direction. it will not pose much if anything in the way of a rain threat. another mild one on tuesday. wednesday, 70s once again. clouds thickening up big time on wednesday. by wednesday night, probably after midnight into thursday,
friday, saturday, rain chances return. a i chilly soaking rain for thursday, friday, saturday. a week from today, marine corps. mayor than. it's going to be close. >> let's hope for your sake. >> all right. >> thank you, chuck. if chuck seems a little down this morning -- >> a little? >> don't blame him. blame the oklahoma sooners. texas tech led 31-7 at one point in the third quarter. the sooners came storming back, within three with a minute to play. but texas tech recovered the on-side kick and held on to knock off the number three ranked sooners, 41-38. and the sooners weren't the only top team with a tough loss last night. did you see wisconsin/michigan state game? let's show you the highlights. the back and forth game came down to the final four seconds with two teams tied.
here we go. michigan state threw up the hail mary. and it's caught! unbelievable. initially it was ruled short of the end zone. after the review, it was overturned. michigan state got the touchdown and the 37-31 win just unbelievable. what a finish. >> soak that up. well, it was a wild one in texas for game 3 of the world series. >> you bet. and the cardinals slugger albert pujols had an historical night. take a look. >> two home runs. and he hits. and here goes one into left. how about three on the night. >> the all-star first baseman slugged three home runs as the cards routed the texas rangers, 16-7. only two other players in major league history hit three homers in one world series game. reggie jackson and babe ruth actually did it twice, both of
them. they lead two games to one. game four is tonight. in hockey, the capitals crushed the detroit red wings, 7-1 and are now the only unbeaten team left in the nhl. the 7-0 start to the season is a franchise record. mike green led the way with two goals and two assists. they are on a role. >> go caps! we need at least one winning game in this area. hopefully the redskins can get it done today. >> let's hope. next up is reporter's notebook. good morning. welcome to reporter's notebook. i'm pat lawson muse. the maryland general sepl has approved a plan to redraw the state's congressional lines based on the 2010 census. it's been a very controversial plan because it splits up parts of montgomery county and moves minorities around. it may deprive the republican
party of a seat in congress. and it's generated quite a lot of conversation and debate over the last week. my guest this morning dave mcconnell of wtop, jerry phillips of d.c. metro talk and michael, author and blogger on michael fontray.com. what do you all think about this and about the controversy? dave? >> well, the district plan in maryland, there are two points of opposition. number one, and donna edwards's case, it will dilute the african-american vote in the state that her district was drawn to give african-americans more clout. it's a minority/majority situation. it takes away from what she can do relative to that. and she explained about that. has given in to the will of the majority. up in upper maryland past montgomery, up into the upper counties, washington, garrett county, which had been occupied
pretty much for the longest amount of time, the thinking there sin eubgs say that's just a bold face move to ousting a republican by redistricting them because they need to boost the overall democratic count in the house. next election time it could be tough for democrats. whether that boomerangs them is tough to say. >> and what's going on here is a microcosm of what's going on around the rest of the country. democrats are in control, republicans are upset. where republicans are in control, democrats are upset. >> so it's back and forth. >> so this is an attempt to sort of balance out, as dave mentioned, some of the projected losses that democrats are going to have in the house of representatives. and it really does speak to attention that occurs every 10 years when we do this redistricting process. it explains why they are going
after bartlett. but there's an darryl where you have the minority/majority districts, as dave mentioned. but the interesting thing is there's an additional question. and this is a bit philosophical. does increasing minority representation in congress necessarily increase oren hands minority political positions or minority political rights? they aren't necessarily linked. we often assume that they are. >> this is not the first time it has happened in be montgomery county. you can go back 10 years. more rell low was stripped. moderate republican. very well liked. she was pretty much stripped out. here in this particular case with donna edwards, arundel county. it will be difficult to get that funding where she used to be the input. >> donna edwards is a really
popular figure among progressives. much of her success was the national money she was able to raise. while she may lose money locally she's still going to have enough support nationally. >> she's not in trouble at all. she will be able to handle it. >> one final thing perhaps here. at a time when people are dying for and saying they want bipartisanship, here they are. give it to an independent board. no the general assembly takes it over. they want to get their own party back in. >> from redistricting to bridges, which it appears are falling apart or at least in danger of falling apart, more than 200 area bridges are structurally deficient. we shouldn't say they're falling
apart. but there are problems. they are no need of repair or replacement. how serious is the problem here in the washington region? >> it's considered very, very serious. they have found new evidence of it most recently on the enter county connector. so that's a new project. yet the problem is funds. where do you get the funding from. how many bridges do you work on? how serious is it really? but this has been a growing problem. democrats say they can address it in the president's new jobs-producing bill with more hiring of workers. but republicans say, no, it's too expensive. we have to find other ways to do it. and it lagged. it doesn't get anywhere. >> you can't defer maintenance forever. some of what we're seeing with with some of these that have been structurally deficient, is the deferred maintenance saying, listen, we can't afford to do it now and they have punted four,
five, six years down the line. so next thing you know you have all of these bridges that are potentially problematic. it's going to take a bridge falling in the potomac before some will understand that infrastructure is important. it can create jobs. that's the kind of thing that provides public safety. >> there's a state of the union address by the president that talked about this very issue, the bridges of america. i can remember for years when we heard this thing about the bridges are falling down, the wilson bridge is a good example. it's a new bridge. they have had all kinds of problems with the wilson bridge. here you talk about the souza bridge that's just been restored. and other bridges like the bridges going across into virginia. so this has been an ongoing situation. infrastructure is so vitally
important. >> let's move into the district where mayor gray signed an executive order that d.c. police will no longer ask immigration -- about the immigration status of anyone who is arrested. now, it's been a policy of the district to sort of take a hands-off approach. you have had interesting response and reaction to this decision. >> this is political low hanging as the mayor's public safety officers have indicated, they are simply reconfirming the administration's policy in that they will not serve as -- >> agents of i.c.e. >> which i find a pretty interesting term. the reality is there are immigration issues around the country. we don't have a comprehensive federal policy that works. so now you have state legislators trying to figure out how to handle this locally. and with regard to the mayor's
decision, this is really a way to get an easy victory with immigration supporters. and i think politically it makes sense. >> yeah. definitely in the district of columbia. because you have a very strong, strong support for the immigration issue. but the fact is, this is always -- there's nothing new about this. we know d.c. is not like virginia when it comes to policies on immigration. >> yeah. but the district as co-op indicated on many, many issues. this is one where they split. and they are not happy. they say they are, you know, weakening the whole cause about prosecuting illegal immigrants and the district is going in the wrong discretion. they can cite statistics in fairfax, prince william's county at the rate of incarceration or the threat for this has driven crime down and has improved the situation involving illegal
immigrants, trying to get them out of the country. it works. and the district should go along and do what it can to help. >> it will be interesting when this national issue comes to light how the district falls into this with its liberal policy. >> any comment about the d.c. council passing emergency legislation last week to stop arresting people who drive around with expired tags? did you know you could go to jail for that? >> yeah. >> i did not know. this is a victory for common sense i think. it makes no sense to waste resources of criminal prosecution of people for something as small i would say as vehicle registration. >> it's small but it's still against the law. >> yeah. chief lanier, kathy lanier said don't get it wrong. we're not going to arrest you, but we will fine you. so it's a very serious thing not
to have the proper license plates. >> senator webb found this in the law and wrote a letter to mayor gray saying in a sense do you know about this? are you going to do something about this. and the mayor responded. so there's cooperation. >> it was passed by congress a long time before home rule. this was a district government thing. this came out of congress. >> and it came home rule. >> we've got to take a break. we'll be right back. stay with us.
their home computer. sounds like a good tool to me. >> it's interesting because the sheriff at loudon county steven simpson said this will be paid for by drug money, number one. number two, he says this is a good avenue for getting kids to talk to their parents. that's a little shaky there. but anyway. but anyway, a lot of parents i imagine would be able to use it. here you can download a type of software that will keep your kids from getting into too much mischief. >> i hear concerns about privacy. >> there are certainly concerns about privacy. with it being paid for by drug money, what happens when the drug money runs out? what happens if there's eye decline in confiscated drug money. then what happens? and the other problem with software, it always requires updates and upgrades.
that could pose an additional problem. generally speaking, as a parent, i think this is something that is potentially he very interesting. but i'm also concerned with the privacy. >> you raise a good point. any time you have a syntax or alcohol tax or you take money from alcohol, take money from drugs or something you have to ask yourself how effective will the end is it really s. that really the way to go about it. the other thing is how effective in this really. does it work as well as they say it is. and the question of free speech. congress has tried to block improper tears for years. they have run into trouble with the courts. this teams to put the onus on the parents. they do it themselves. they self select. they're not being forced to use it. no one is coming in and altering your computer. at the same time there might be srer vowsness about this and we'll have to see how it plays
out. >> in virginia there is a reported $150 million budget excess on the dulles access project. $150 million over the budget. this question keeps coming up. how far over budget will this project go? how long will it take this project to be completed? when will it be completed? what are your thoughts about this? is there anything new here? >> we have talked about this issue on this program for the last five years just about. it always ends up in a big circus for some reason pwufplt here we're talking about $150 million over for this access road. tom davis, the former congressman, says one of the ways to pay for this is to pay tolls on the access roads. and others are saying the same thing. but, see, this plays into this whole thing. how much money are you going to
spend on this project to complete it. >> well, there's another point here. i think there are problems with the propbgzs. part of that is if they are too high it would be more difficult to get support. and i believe some people are not effectively and accurately making these projections so these cost overruns look even more outrageous and there are always cost overruns in projects. a home renovation or whatever, they always take too long and they always cost too much. >> take a closer look. not that they haven't got good accounts but i hear this all the time on the hill when people raise issues. is it really that bad? here we go again. surprise, surprise. they're over budget. metro has always been over budget on everything it does. that's one of the problems. they've never been able to get a handle on it. >> the very reason i used the word politics in the beginning, the dulles toll road, whatever you want to call it, has always
been a political situations. >> you either have to raise taxes or cut costs. neither option is palatable option to the voter at this time. >> thank you all. and thank you for joining us. that's reporter's notebook. stay with us. news 4 today continues. good morning. thanks for waking up with us this morning on news 4 today. i'm an skwr goff. >> today is sunday, october 23rd. a little cold outside. if you're under the covers, you might want to stay there this morning. >> no doubt about it. if you're an electric blanket person you may have to move it up to "low." i'm not an electric blanket person. >> i have one. >> do you? >> oh, yeah.
>> did you have it on low? >> medium. i like it toasty. >> that would explain it. very chilly outside first thing this morning. if you're heading out for your early morning walk, jog, run, ride, whatever you're going to do, bundle up. or get nice and warm before you leave the house. jog in place for 10 minutes and then go outside. that will get you going. temperatures have fallen into the thirds in nearly every spot especially to the west of i-95 towards western maryland and the panhandle of west virginia. temperatures in the mid to upper 30s right now. 50 in annapolis. 45 in downtown. it's going to be a nice day today. mostly sunny. a little warmer than yesterday as well. near peak on the fall color in the high spots. great weather around the area for today. mild again for tomorrow as well. a couple of chance toss reach 70 before rain chances return. we'll talk about that in the seven-day coming up. >> looking forward to it. thank you, chuck.

murders. the woman accused of murdering her co-worker in a yoga clothing store is set to stand trial tomorrow. she is accused of killing jane that murphy at lululemon in bethesda. norwood's attorney said he's still open to negotiations on a possible plea bargain but is preparing for a trial. tragedy in fairfax county fire department is mourning the loss of one of their own. horace pendergrass was 49 years old. officials say there's nothing suspicious about his death but remains under investigation right now. a response vane ya county neighborhood is on the lookout for a man who tried to snatch a 9-year-old girl. it happened friday night on polaris court. the girl had just gotten off the school bus when she noticed a

they can't take anything for granted. >> i think they have lost a lot of games by three to seven points. we have all heard of cam's numbers. 400 yards passing. we have eight or nine rushing touchdowns. so they are a dangerous football team. >> and the skins will have to get that win without the help from tight jeopardy across cooly who got laid out by corner back byron westbrook. and they are both out with injuries. a little banged up, new quarterback. but we have faith. >> yes, we do. >> it is 6:39 right now. another memoir from the top bush official is coming out. why condoleezza rice said she wanted to quick at one point. >> what mcdonald's wants to do for the third when you believe in the future, you're always looking ahead...

us going out here are those simple acts. and some not quite so simple. done by others to simply say thanks. >> colonel ward, who was wounded in iraq but returned there after recovering, is the inspiration behind thanks usa. an effort that awards scholarships to military dependents. >> but i am honored that in some small way i may have given you a thought to serve our soldiers and our families in a way you have. >> that thought was what ward's u.s. neighbors, rachel and kelsey call a brain last. it provides scholarships to children and spouses of military personnel. >> we want to pay forward what the trips have given to us. this is one way that we can repay them for what they have given us. >> it's all about paying it forward. we're so lucky. we need to pass our blessings on to people who don't have as much as we do.
so we want to say thank you to the military who allows us to be whoever we want to be. >> thousands of children and spouses apply for assistance. >> it's been a constant struggle. >> and the oken girls, aided by family and friends, worked tirelessly to raise awareness of thanks usa. they're reaching the top levels of the military. >> we hope more americans will continue to invest in these deserving young people and in military families who have done so much for our country. >> they're catching the attention of the members of congress too. >> the military family is something real. keep in mind if it weren't for them these men and women would not be volunteering. we owe the family a great deal. anything you can do for the families, believe me, we
support. >> i cherish what it is you have done and what you continue to do to make things right for people who have served us. >> and dreams are being fulfilled. >> my parents supported me all my life and always told me to do whatever i wanted to do and to grow to be whoever i wanted to be. and it's because of them and because of organizations like thanks usa that i'm able to pursue my dream. >> i'm really hoping to go into the air force j.a.g. corps.. i would like to serve my country that way. i feel it's the best way i can give back. >> after five years, almost 2,200 scholarships totaling $6 million have been awarded across all the armed forces, reserves, and national guard. but the need remains great. >> as a military spouse we find ourselves helping each other and
our own families in the military community. we see the struggles, hardships and the difficulties one another face. and the one thing i can ask civilian counterparts it would be to support their troops in any way possible. >> thanks usa hopes you will offer a gift to our military families for their future as they help secure the nation's future. >> thanks so much for giving one of the most important gifts of all, the gift of education. >> and when we come back, we'll talk with the family and learn more about thanks usa. ♪

vacation at the treasure hunt. bob, you're the president. you tell us how this began. >> i'm really the dad. so, yeah, my wife is from idaho. we were vacationing in idaho at the end of '05, in the summer. and the girls came to us with a great idea. and so it's best to let them describe the idea probably. >> all right. take it away, girls. >> we had been playing a treasure hunt previously to the creation of this charity. it got our whole family together. we were calling our aunt from new mexico and grandma in arizona. it showed us that when your family is together, that's when you're the happiest. we were searching for the clues. and once the treasure hunt ended we were a bit disappointed we hadn't gotten anything we decide decided if we could put all of that energy into something good
instead of just finding jewels what an experience that would be. that was at basis of it. and we had a neighbor who rachel could tell you about. >> the whole premise was not let's look for physical gems, let's look at the real gems of america, which is our military and their families. we had been moving lit can itty corn tore a lieutenant colonel and his family for a couple years. he was our first introduction to the life of a military member. it was seeing someone we admired and looked up to. severely wounded. after his term in iraq it resonated with us. and we thought there's no way that someone who is so full of goodness and kindness that anyone should be denied the access to the education they deserve. and we thought to ourselves, okay, so our military gives us the freedom to be whoever we want to with their sacrifice and the only way for us to
reciprocate that freedom is the kind of opportunity you get when you have an education. >> so, bob, they came to you with this idea. >> yeah. >> we mentioned you had read a book, treasure hunt book and you watched a movie, national treasure. >> yeah. >> what was your response and your wife's response? >> we thought it was a great idea. you can't take all your kids's great ideas so we sifted them. this was resonating. we're just a civilian family. not like we had much to do with the military. in fact, we were probably a little bit selfish into our own little world and giving a little money to school and church and that was it. we felt we were at a point where we could give back. we thought it was a terrific idea. we saw the sacrifice of our neighbor. we thought, okay, let's see if we can put an organization together and we can mobilize some of your friends in our neighborhood and get this thing off the ground.
>> tell us about this thing. how does this treasure hunt work? >> so basically -- well, it used to be this book. now it's completely online. and you can access the hunt on our website www.thanksusa.org. it goes from american history, state history, from president to founding leaders and great women. and basically it tests your knowledge about the great country that our military is protecting. >> and the treasure hunt actually take place over a period of months, does it? >> you got that right. and what's neat about the treasure hunt is we found out through gaming laws if we wanted kids to play we wouldn't be able to charge for the treasure hunt. so it's a way of getting people excited about the cause, reminding them of the great history inherent to our country and also to raise awareness of the cause.
>> so how does the treasure hunt raise funds for the scholarship program that you've set up? >> it basically -- instead of funds it raises awareness. so it brings people to the website and it also so hopefully they will browse around and see what they can find. and on our website there's all the different ways you can donate, upcoming events. so that's basically the main reason we have the treasure hunt online. >> and you're currently in the midst of the treasure hunt for 2010 and the hunt actually ends when? >> it's going to end in november. so the deadline is coming right up. and we're hard at work on our next treasure hunt. >> bob, tell us a little more about this scholarship. >> so we did a little research. the girls stumbled on to two things. if you want to get awareness, you have to get people to your
website. hopefully once they get there they will contribute to whatever cause there is. there was a doughnut hole in the educational system for military families. in '05, the g.i. bill had not been updated yet. not since vietnam has it been updated. except fort ra reason core, there's very little to help those.

themselves, they were playing for the satisfaction of knowing they had done something significant to help our military families. >> so we decided to aim our prizes more towards the educational part of the charity. now we give out laptops, kindles, ipads. if you get them all right, then you are in the running for the chapter prizes and grand prize. >> bob, the -- it's a wonderful way, first of all, to educate and inspire young americans. the scholarship program, how much are theships and who qualifies? >> so we're the only needs-based scholarship program based on financial need. each year we get thousands, 10,000 this past year of people preapplying. we get about 2,500 completed applications. our goal is to award 5,000, each denominated at $3,000.
so far this year we have given away 300. so it's almost a million dollars out the door that will be raised. and about 2,500 scholarships over the six years so far. >> are they one time, or are they renewable scholarships? >> they can get -- they can reply as many times as they want. we have people who have applied two and three times. so they can be veterans of the scholarship program. and it actually with those that we have raised so far it's actually totaling over $7.2. which sounds like an astounding amount. we do have so many applicants. 10,000 people just downloaded the application form just this year. so the need is still there. that's your goal is to keep doing this until the need is no longer apparent. >> and the need and the effort
have attracted prt high profile supporters. your national spoerbgs person is stefan curry of the golden state warriors. >> you got that right. stefan feels very passionate about education which is at the heart of the entire organization. so he pledged his support to the charity and is leading a twitter campaign, trying to get a million supporters to donate one dollar. but he's a fantastic young man. he actually did something really incredible. when he and his wife got married recently they decided instead of asking for wedding gifts they asked for donation toss thanks usa, which really shows us i think how this charity resonates with a lot of people. they feel empowered to give in whatever way they can. >> our first lady michelle obama has been a strong advocate for military families. >> right. >> since moving into the white house. what do you think about her efforts and the attention that
she's attracted to the whole campaign to help military families? >> i think they have done a great job. it's so impressive that she and dr. biden did this before the election. they're very consistent throughout their tenure in the white house. they elevated this tremendously. you don't forget, with so many troops coming home both from iraq and afghanistan. so i think they are they have done a terrific job. they have reached out to the ngos and nonprofits to get us mobilized and moving in the same direction. there are a lot of great organizations and we try to partner with many of them. >> do you feel that americans value the contributions of our military from these recent wars as much as they downtown ntributions of military service members who served in world war ii in the vietnam
more, the korean war. >> go ahead, girls. >> i feel like the major difference is the kind of with their we're in. it's definitely something that's a lot more removed from the american people. and so i feel like people still appreciate our military sacrifice but they're not confronted with it. our military does such a good job that we often forget we're still at war and we have been for 10 years. so i feel like now more than ever it's important to look at your neighbors to, look at people who have someone in the military that they love and to realize that? serving a military family you're really serving the soldier overseas who is defending your freedom. >> you have i big concert coming up. we'll talk about that right after this.
welcome back. we're talking this morning about sthapbgs usa. kelsey, you're 13 years old. you have a rather unique -- not unique but a very passionate response to the way our military service members are having to live when they come back from iraq and afghanistan. >> well, i mean, i was at another event a few days ago and i was talking to some of my friends. they were saying that every single one of them either knew
someone, had a family member who served in one of the wars. there's so many of those selfless men and women and the fact that we don't celebrate them like we do the celebrities who just released some movie about an awful subject. it's kind of depressing. they should be the ones who get to walk down the red carpet and get the recognition that they truly deserve for doing such an incredible job on the front line while we're out here on the home front. >> i think we all agree with you. so you have turned your passion into this wonderful effort, thanks usa. you have a concert on the 14th of november. do you want to talk about that, rachel? >> basically, we're bringing together some really incredible artists, john rich of the country band big and rich. and a powerful song about a moving living with als. it will be a lovely night, great
ambience. it will be a wonderful way to bring people together around a common goal. >> do you want to add to that, bob? >> it's a little bit different in that we're honoring the troops and their families. so we are working with uso metro to have 1,000 of the troops fill autopsy the constitution hall monday night, november 14th. so we're getting a lot of sponsors to come in and sponsor tickets so the traps can attend. >> how much are the particular senates. >> all seats are $50. >> when did the idea of the concert come in? is this part of your yearly work? is it a yearly project? >> we have done a few concerts in the past. we had to do it at the grand old opry. it combines the country music fans with the military. country is -- they are so much happier and they're not caught up with all the petty needs that
we city folk have. but it's really a ball being with all of them. and i think that is going to be a great show. so if you want to come it's $50. all proceeds go to "thanks." it's going to be really fun. >> and the artists all donate their time. we have great partners like american airlines who flies them up, and hotel partners. that way the monies raised will still go to the scholarship fund. >> bob, they are 16 and 13,000 but they were much younger when they perceived the need and they came one this idea. >> they must have a good mother. no, obviously i really am proud. what a thrill to be able to do something like this with them. but we have to keep them grounded so we try not to dwell on them. so we just try to stay in the background and just celebrate the troops and their families.
>> riachel and kelsey, what woud you encourage other young people to do, to honor service members. how can they help? what kinds of ideas would you say would be good ideas for other young people? the treasure hunt, the scholarship program, these are your ideas. but everybody can contribute something. >> absolutely. >> i think it's really just finding out what you're passionate about and seizing that and making sure that you use the most of your affinity. and you could be passionate about animals or staying green. and i think that's really what you have to feed on is your love. because your idea isn't going to keep going and keep going higher if you don't truly believe in it and love what you're doing. i think it's true that we want to do nothing other than help those who deserve it and the
military is for us, that's who it is. for everyone, they have their own niche and that's what they need to help out with. >> rachel? >> if you're passionate about helping our military and their families, you can send care packages overseas. >> and you were doing that before you started the treasure hunt. >> exactly. that's a tangible way of giving the soldiers overseas a little bit of the comforts they're missing from home. another thing is to go and visit soldiers especially at the army hospitals. you know, again, these are young men probably not much older than kids who want to help out. and i think that it's very profound to be able to sit down and have a conversation with somebody uh-oh your freedom to. so taking time to listen and empathize with all they're going through and see if you can assist them in any way. let the troops speak to you. because they're the ones who this is all about.
>> very well said. bob, final word. >> i should just stay quiet here, pat. i just enjoy listening to them. no, i think we're going to continue with thanks usa until there isn't any further need and we can shut the organization down at that time. but frankly for the next i think five years we're just going to try to keep helping military families. >> bob, kelsey and rachel, we have a website. www.thanksusa.org. the concert take place november 14th, constitution hall. we can learn all about that by logging onto the website. good luck to you. >> thank you very much. >> and thank you for what you're doing. thank you for being with us. that's viewpoint. i'm pat lawson muse. stay with us.
