Veteran given gift of free furniture

LAS VEGAS
(KLAS) —
A local veteran is taking home thousands of dollars worth of
brand-new furniture for free. It’s all thanks to an organization, with the
mission to help those who have served our country, succeed in life.

For Navy veteran Chris
Bridgeforth, it’s the gift of a lifetime.

“I’m a very, very
blessed lucky man right now,” Bridgeforth said.

Bridgeforth, along with his
son and pregnant wife, have a $4,000 credit to get whatever they want.

It’s all thanks to the Armed
Forces Chamber and Sleep Well Las Vegas through a program called, “Honoring
Veterans on Military Birthdays.” On the birthday of each military branch, a
veteran from that branch will be honored.

Bridgeforth served in the
navy for about a decade. Now, he’s a life insurance agent and recently moved to
Summerlin. He was honored Sunday, because it’s the Navy’s 244th birthday... Read More

US pulling out of northern Syria; full withdrawal possible

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States appears to be heading toward a full military withdrawal from Syria amid growing chaos, cries of betrayal and signs that Turkey’s invasion could fuel a broader war.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Sunday that President Donald Trump had directed U.S. troops in northern Syria to begin pulling out “as safely and quickly as possible.” He did not say Trump ordered troops to leave Syria, but that seemed like the next step in a combat zone growing more unstable by the hour.

Esper, interviewed on two TV news shows, said the administration was considering its options.

“We have American forces likely caught between two opposing advancing armies and it’s a very untenable situation,” Esper said... Read More

Missing worker search goes on in New Orleans hotel collapse

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Rescue crews in New Orleans on Sunday were trying to find a worker missing in the rubble of a hotel that collapsed while under construction but work in the unstable structure must be done delicately, officials said.

Family seeks answers after police kill Texas woman at home

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A white police officer who killed a black woman inside her own home in Texas didn’t have time to perceive a threat before shooting her, an attorney for the woman’s family said.

“You didn’t hear the officer shout, ‘Gun, gun, gun,'” attorney Lee Merritt said after viewing video taken from a Fort Worth officer’s bodycam during Saturday’s shooting death of Atatiana Jefferson, 28. “He didn’t have time to perceive a threat. That’s murder.”
