    For people who choose to throw gender reveal parties, it’s an exciting moment.

    Mom and Dad alike are there waiting to find out if this bundle of joy they love so much will be a boy or a girl. For many of our military service members, however, this kind of party has to be done thousands of miles apart.

    For one woman who’d lost the father of her unborn child, however, the thought of doing it without him was even more heartbreaking.

    Army Specialist Christopher Harris died from a suicide bomb while serving in Afghanistan.

    He and his wife, Britt, had been married for less than a year, and she got pregnant the night before he went on deployment.

    Harris’s fellow soldiers wanted to do something special to honor their fallen comrade, so they were the ones who helped out with Britt’s gender reveal. Want to find out what she’s having? Watch the whole thing below!

    Most kids love the excitement of Halloween.

    What’s not to love? Between the costumes, the decorations, and the candy, it’s basically like Christmas in October. For kids who are too ill to participate, however, it can be bittersweet when this time of year rolls around.

    Brock Chadwick has been battling a rare brain cancer since March. He had surgery to remove his tumors, but the cancer returned.

    His family says he loves Halloween, so they’ve asked people to send him cards to help lift his spirits during this difficult and painful time.

    If you want to send him something special, his address is below. So far, they’ve received more than 30 cards and a few packages with candy and other Halloween treats.

  • These Veterans Are Here To Tell You What’s Really Happening In Puerto Rico Right Now

    media.galaxant.com_000_504_272_340x252-1508175705

    If you’re just listening to what the federal government is saying, you might be under the impression that relief in Puerto Rico is going well.

    Puerto Rico recently experienced complete devastation at the hands of Hurricane Maria. Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, and the people who live there are full American citizens. Unlike the responses to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on the mainland U.S., relief efforts have been slow and ineffective. Some of the help we’re told is ongoing includes providing food to families affected and beginning to rebuild. But what’s really happening?

    A team of twelve veterans is volunteering their time to help Puerto Rico, and they have a lot to say about what they’re seeing on the ground.

    From food quantities to quality, these veterans are wondering what the holdup is when it comes to helping the Puerto Ricans they see every day.

    They also dispute reports that the Puerto Rican officials and National Guard aren’t doing their best. They’re helping families every day, but supplies have run short.


    Twitter / @Lucian

    Ultimately, they’re committed to their mission and are begging that the red tape be cut so supplies can be distributed.

    It’s important that we know what’s actually happening in Puerto Rico so we can best help our fellow citizens. If you want to follow what this team of veterans is doing each day, @Lucian on Twitter is updating regularly.

  • Here’s The Gross Thing Every Parent Needs To Watch Out For This Halloween

    media.galaxant.com_000_504_223_340x252-1508095495

    Halloween is a scary time of year.

    Everyone’s decorating with spooky decorations and getting ready to scare their neighbors with their costumes. It’s super exciting for children who get to dress up and have some of that sweet Halloween candy. While most parents are concerned about checking their kids’ candy for issues, there’s another health risk that comes around this time of year that every mom and dad should know about.

    Doctors see a huge jump in head lice during this time of year. With people trying on wigs and costumes in the store, that makes sense.

    After all, there’s no telling how many people have tried it on before you decide to take a costume home.

    Putting costumes and wigs in an airtight plastic bag for 48 hours before wearing it is the easiest way to kill lice.

    You can also put dryer-friendly items on high heat for 45 minutes before wearing, or wear swim and wig caps for extra protection. Learn more below.

  • Most Burglars Want To Get In And Out Fast. This Guy Took His Time (And Made Dinner)

    media.galaxant.com_000_504_220_340x252-1508094448

    If I know one thing about thieves, it’s that they’re trying to get something and get out before they get caught.

    Waiting around while robbing someone is just asking to be caught. If someone hears or becomes suspicious, the police are just a phone call away.

    When Nelly’s Taqueria in New York was robbed, however, they decided to take a look at the surveillance footage. The camera didn’t capture the robber’s face, but it did show them something totally strange.

    The robber made himself dinner! And cleaned up afterward, because when the owner arrived in the kitchen the next day, it was completely spotless. Check out the story below.

    Everyone’s got to eat, I guess? Here’s hoping this thief doesn’t try to pull something like this again and is caught soon.

  • She Had No Idea Why She Was Pulled Over For A DUI. Then Her Boyfriend Walked Over

    media.galaxant.com_000_504_091_340x252-1507730961

    Getting pulled over is never fun.

    It’s especially awful if you know you haven’t done anything wrong. When one woman was pulled over under suspicion of DUI, she had absolutely no idea why. It was the middle of the day and she was completely sober. Still, she followed the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station officers’ instructions and began performing a sobriety test.

    What she didn’t know is that her boyfriend, Deputy Kevin Bowes, was walking up behind her with a surprise…

    He definitely pranked her, but watch the video to see if she said “yes” anyway!

    All’s well that ends well I suppose. Congratulations to them and cheers to their new life together!
