Erin O'Toole, new veterans affairs minister: 7 things to know
Huffington Post
Canadians have a new minister of veterans affairs after Julian Fantino's tumultuous tenure in the role came to an end recently. Erin O'Toole, MP for Ontario's Durham riding, has taken up the job of improving relations with veterans that became testy, to say the least, under Fantino's watch.

With his wife and child close at hand, U.S. Army Maj. Chad Wriglesworth battled skin cancer for more than a year before dying at age 37.

Stars and Stripes
Enemy fighters ducking behind walls or trees might soon wish they hadn't. The U.S. military is creating a new high-tech grenade programmed to detect a barrier and explode just after passing it, inflicting at least some damage on a concealed enemy.
