Earnhardt, who started this season with a bang by winning the Daytona 500, scored another dramatic and special win Oct. 26 by winning the Goody's Headache 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Army isolating some soldiers returning from Africa
Military Times
The Army has begun isolating soldiers returning from the Ebola outbreak zone in West Africa, but so far the Pentagon has not imposed a new forcewide policy to quarantine all troops who participate in that mission. About a dozen soldiers — including a two-star general — were sequestered Oct. 27 in a quarantinelike setting after leaving Liberia and arriving at the U.S. Army base in Vincenza, Italy. The special isolation will last for 21 days to ensure they are not infected with the Ebola virus.

Army issues new re-enlistment rules
Army Times
The Regular Army retention program that opened Oct. 1 includes five re-enlistment options for qualified soldiers whose terms of service will expire before Sept. 30, 2015.
