A push is underway to declare Camp Hale, the Colorado birthplace of the 10th Mountain Division in World War II, as America’s first National Historic Landscape.
According to the Vail Daily, the designation would be a part of the proposed Continental Divide Wilderness and Recreation Act, which would create three new wilderness areas in the region and expand nearby existing wilderness areas.
The new landscape designation is being proposed by U.S. Sen. Michael F. Bennet, D-Colo.
Camp Hale is already on the National Register of Historic Places, the paper reported.
KABUL (Reuters) - The Islamic State (IS) militant group claimed responsibility on Sunday for a suicide blast at a wedding reception in Afghanistan that killed 63 people, underlining the dangers the country faces even if the Taliban agrees a pact with the United States.
The Saturday night attack came as the Taliban and the United States try to negotiate an agreement on the withdrawal of U.S. forces in exchange for a Taliban commitment on security and peace talks with Afghanistan's U.S.-backed government.
Islamic State fighters, who first appeared in Afghanistan in 2014 and have since made inroads in the east and north, are not involved in the talks. They are battling government and U.S.-led international forces and the Taliban.
The group, in a statement on the messaging website Telegram, claimed responsibility for the attack at a west Kabul wedding hall in a minority Shi'ite neighborhood, saying its bomber had been able to infiltrate the reception and detonate his explosives in the crowd of "infidels".
