A 15-year-old student at Glen Burnie High who police say went to the school Tuesday with a loaded .22-caliber handgun was arrested and charged as a juvenile with a weapons violation. Officials credited three staff members at the school with detaining the student and discovering the gun in a book bag. "I don't think it's possible to overstate the importance that an alert school secretary and two assistant principals — who didn't take simple answers that weren't adding up at face value — played in preventing what could have been a disastrous situation," said Bob Mosier, a spokesman for Anne Arundel public schools.

In the days following the invasion that marked the beginning of the end of the war in Europe, Schroeder was cited in newspaper clippings as likely being the first American soldier to reach Europe in the amphibious invasion.
