When Airman Steven Doty was the first to rush to the scene of a downed helicopter in the Nuristan province of Afghanistan, he didn't consider the possibility that he might have been putting his own life in jeopardy. On May 3, 2010, a Russian aircraft bringing supplies to Kalagush, a military base that had been the target of several attacks, dropped suddenly to the ground as a result of mechanical failures. Doty, who worked at the base, leaped into action after observing the crash on a monitor at the base's joint operations command center.

KUWAIT CITY -- Abbas Malik was a marked man. How he escaped a kidnap team sent from Baghdad is one of countless bits in a mosaic, just now fully emerging, of extraordinary bravery and cunning by Kuwaitis under Iraqi occupation.The resistance movement involved men, women and children. It ranged from little kids serving as couriers to sophisticated money managers shifting and smuggling billions of dollars. It went on day and night for almost eight months.The Kuwaiti royal family, many of them living in relative luxury and safety in neighboring Saudi Arabia, played a role.

NEW YORK - OK, so Sex and the City didn't end with a climax. It ended with something closer to a snuggle. But pity the poor writers, caught between the wish for a "Big" ending and the desire for no ending at all, an endless time warp of baby T's and Pradas and first dates and girl talk. Sex and the City was not exactly a Valentine to being single, unless you have a particularly raunchy Hallmark in mind. It was too dishy, too X-rated for the Meg Ryan chick flick crowd. But the series arrived just in time to give us some single women to root for. So as the Eiffel Tower recedes and Mr. Big is transformed from cad to John, this series takes its place in history as an antidote to all the stories that ever made "single" sound like a syndrome rather than a status.

The Italian liner Costa Concordia, with 4,200 passengers aboard, piled up in January on the rocky shoreline of Tuscany, tearing out its bottom and capsizing. The death toll has risen to 25, with the recovery of eight more bodies last week. Seven people remain missing. Capt. Francesco Schettino, the Costa Concordia's master, violated one of the noblest and most sacred traditions of the sea when he did not direct the evacuation of passengers and crew. There can be nothing more terrifying for passengers than to see crew members going over the side, as has been alleged by disaster survivors, who described a scene of panic and confusion.

Veterans sometimes say combat survivors give off a glow that protects them like an invisible shield. Jonathan Rhys Meyers radiates that glow until the final reel of The Children of Huang Shi, a terrific, fact-inspired moral adventure. Playing George Hogg, a British war correspondent who travels to China in 1937 to assess the looming Japanese occupation, Rhys Meyers pulls the audience into his clear-eyed gaze and compels us to see history afresh. He may be a racy heartthrob as Henry VIII in Showtime's The Tudors, but in this role he possesses spiritual nobility.

An organ played as mourners streamed down the aisles of an Annapolis church yesterday toward the flag-draped coffin holding the body of Army Spc. Micheal Benson Matlock Jr. Specialist Matlock, less than three years out of Glen Burnie High School, died last week in Iraq. Yesterday, he was remembered for his devotion to both the high school sweetheart he married barely a year ago and their baby boy - and for the bravery that enabled him to sign on for battle. "It takes courage to do what he did. Nobody joins the Army during wartime," said the Rev. Kaipha Downs, who delivered the eulogy, and who had known the soldier since he was a young boy. "Mike did," she said, to rousing applause from hundreds at the service at the First Christian Community Church.

If history made a sound, it would be a musical one. It's easy to imagine the crash of cymbals and rumble from a pedestal timpani drum as musical elements of wars. There is also perhaps no better shoo-in for the disco era of the 1970s than the "chica-wah-wah" of a strummed electric guitar. But how might you connect music to America's history of bondage, brutality and beastly treatment of African slaves? What if you could take a person from that era and paint them with music that is symbolic of their legacy?

Barry Subelsky never knew Maj. Douglas A. Zembiec. And until the Charleston, W.Va., police chief found out about Zembiec's combat death in May from e-mail messages circulated in the law enforcement community, he had never heard about the Marine who came to be known as the "Lion of Fallujah."

Instead of grieving for thousands of war dead, Americans are celebrating the safe return of Desert Storm veterans. The fact that it could have been otherwise gives this Memorial Day special significance.This national holiday began as an occasion for decorating the graves of Civil War soldiers. After World War I the day became a time to remember the lives lost in later wars as well. As years passed, the commemoration outgrew the lingering partisan feelings that marked it as a "Union" holiday shunned in Southern states.
