So this country has corrected an oversight three-quarters of a century old. The correction came just in time for a handful of remaining men from one of the Second World War's best units. Jay Price of member station WUNC reports.

With less than 100 days until the 2020 presidential election, Ohio's 18 electoral votes are in play.

The students are met at the school door with a thermometer and a health quiz, answering questions like "Are you feeling sick today?"
