Normally when you think of eligible bachelors, you think rich, handsome actors, royalty, or real estate moguls, not congressmen. But when it comes to military veterans Adam Kinzinger and Seth Moulton, you might want to make an exception. Town & Country magazine certainly did when choosing them as the only two veterans in its 50 most eligible bachelors of 2017.


Kinzinger, a Republican from Illinois, served in the Air Force since 2003 as a pilot, flying KC-135 Stratotankers. He’s somewhat of a black sheep in his party, vehemently opposing Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for president, and the Conservative Review gave his voting record an “F” for being too liberal.

Politics aside though, he also made The Hill’s “50 Most Beautiful People” list in 2011.

Moulton, on the other hand, is a Democrat from Massachusetts. He served in the Marine Corps from 2001 to 2008, with four tours in Iraq. In the two day Battle of Najaf against the militia of Muqtada al-Sadr in 2004, he put himself in harm’s way to save his platoon, which was pinned down under heavy fire. His bravery garnered him the Bronze Star Medal.

He’s got bravery, beauty, and brains. Between his Iraq tours, Moulton earned his master's degrees in business and public administration in a dual program at Harvard University.

Who knows how long they’ll be eligible though. Maybe some lucky ladies will find them on Tinder in the DC metropolitan area.

The incident happened just after 10:30 a.m., when the Caltrans survey tripod was stolen from the corner of Neasham Circle and Front Street, CHP South Sacramento said in a news release.

KABUL (Reuters) - Afghanistan's parliament descended into chaos on Sunday when lawmakers brawled over the appointment of a new speaker, an inauspicious start to the assembly which was sitting for the first time since chaotic elections last year.

Results of last October's parliamentary election were only finalized earlier this month after repeated technical and organizational problems and widespread accusations of fraud.

RIVIERA BEACH — When a distraught patient opened fire at the VA Medical Center in February, Albert Gaines' long ago military training kicked into gear.

"When I saw the arm come up, I knew what was next, pow, pow, pow," said Gaines, who was doing his job, cleaning patient rooms, when gunfire erupted. "I hit the deck to minimize the target."

Now, three months after what his bosses at the hospital call "the active shooter incident," the 65-year-old Riviera Beach man still feels like a target is on him.

If the Pentagon had to take Consumer Math class in high school, they'd flunk.

The U.S. military—correction, the U.S. taxpayer—is spending more money to buy fewer weapons. The reason? Poor acquisition practices, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

"DOD's 2018 portfolio of major weapon programs has grown in cost by $8 billion, but contains four fewer systems than last year," GAO found.
