across portions of the northeast. i want to take you now to parts of the plains. across texas, we've been dealing with heavy rain and that's triggering river flooding and levels are forecast to stay at flood stage, possibly even moderate flood stage in some areas out there, across portions of texas and they are going to stay active with thunderstorms in the forecast for the next several days and potentially more than six inches of rain still in the way of some those areas, it's a big threat out there. severe weather a big concern as well across portions of the northern and central plains. damaging winds and large hail. we have an isolated tornado threat across portions of the dakotas. temperatures now are relatively mild from the plains to eastern u.s. taking a look what they are going to be looking for this afternoon, very summer-like across the plains and pacific northwest on the cool side. 60s and 70s.
we're falling some other stories. outrage after a zoo shoots and kills a gorilla to saves a boy's life when he flips into the animals exhibit. others are putting the blame on the child's parents. and of course, peta has something to say. even under the best circumstances, captivity is never acceptable for gorillas or other primates and in cases like this, it's even deadly. meanwhile, a makeshift memorial has been set up at the zoo where visitors have been putting down flowers in memory of that gorilla. on to a fox news alert, police shooting for a motive in a wild shooting rampage sending people running for their lives in a hun suburb -- houston suburb. [ sirens ] the scene leaving people in one normally quiet family friendly
neighborhood shaken and shocked. police say it all started when one of the men walked into an auto shop yesterday morning and opened fire, killing a customer and putting a community on lockdown. the gunman randomly shooting at anything and anyone in their path. including riddling a police car with moments. one man described the chilling moment when he came face-to-face with one of the suspects. >>ed dude and looked and seen me across the sheet and shot at me. >> police shot and killed one of the suspects and the other in custody. four people and two officers were injured but are expected to be okay. there's a new challenger for the white house. former new mexico governor gary johnson winning the libertarian nomination. a fox news poll shows with johnson with 10% of the votes in
a match-up with trent and clinton -- with trump and clinton. this is what happens when libertarian loses a race. james weeks stripping on stage in michigan. instead of votes, he got boos from the crowd. weeks says it was a dare. those are your headlines. >> they have fun at the libertarians. >> isn't that pay for view? >> it was on hbo last night. donald trump using memorial day weekend to express his disgust with the va. >> it comes as one of his fearest campaign rivals vows to support him in cleveland. >> kristen fisher is live with that story. >> donald trump is slamming the va this memorial day weekend. he says the u.s. takes better care of people here illegally than they do their own veterans. he made those remarks at the
rolling thunders ride for freedom here in washington, d.c. he's had a rocky relationship with veterans ever since he made that comment about senator john mccain. yesterday, he was applauded for pledging to rebl our military and take care of our veterans. >> our veterans have been treated so badly in this country. you have a secretary that last week said, no, the wait time doesn't matter, and in many cases illegal immigrants are taken much better care by this country, taken care of, than our veterans and not going to happen. >> over the weekend, trump also picked up some support from a most unlikely former rival, marco rubio. rubio said on sunday that he now fully supports donald trump. he even apologized for some of his more personal attacks, including that one about trump's alleged small hands. >> i apologize to him for that.
i'm sorry that i said that. it's not who i am and i shouldn't have done it. i didn't like what it reflected on me. it embarrassed my family. it's not who i am. >> rubio also said that he would speak on trump's behalf at the republican convention in july. so this is rubio really going all in for trump just three months after making some of the most personal attacks of his political career. peter, anna and clayton. >> look at you guys looking sharp in your matching stripes and red ties. >> thank you so much, kristen. not as rainy down there as it is up here. it will be interesting to see whether or not ted cruz pulls a marco rubio. >> it got pretty nasty there at the end. let's see if they can kiss and make up. >> it's been quite a weekend at better thannies. >> -- bernie's. >> on the sunday shows, yesterday, hillary clinton's email scandal was really dominating the news, and bernie sanders weighed in and you are
hearing a bit of a different tune from him. >> the inspector general just came out with a report. it was not a good report for secretary clinton. that is something that the american people, democrats, and delegates are going to take a hard look at. they will be keeping it in mind. i don't have to tell them that. rve in america is keeping it in mind and cerinly the super delegates are. your job is to make sure that donald trump is defeated and defeated badly. >> is this bernie's last stand? playing this card. in the fall he said i'm tired about hearing about these emails. can we move on to things of more substance? pay attention to this inspector''s general report. >> this is a win-win for bernie. he gets to talk about the emails. he also gets to talk about these super delegates by targeting the super delegates and say i think they are going to tart to listen to the problems hillary is having with the state
department. that reminds democrat super delegates that they are trying to hand it to you. it's a handful of elites who want to hand it to hillary and not bernie. >> it seems to be working to fire up the masses and get the crowds out. defeat the man and defeat the establishment. that's been working for him. on the sunday shows, he didn't say it's not rigged. it's dumb the way it works. if you look at them matched up, they are almost neck and neck without the super delegates, he's going to try to court those super delegates particularly in the states where he won overwhelmly. >> it is the story of the week and all these clinton surrogates trying to defend clinton and her home brewed server. we'll have more on the show. when it comes to campaigns, money is king. hillary clinton has spent $4 million to defeat donald trump. why can't she take him down?
...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.
hillary clinton's presidential campaign is no longer shaping up to be the coronation everyone expected. she's still facing off bernie sanders in california. >> she's spent $4 million on research. tas what i do for a living. i don't have a sense that she's figured out with all that money spent how to approach and how to handle donald trump. if you spend $4 million to figure out how to deal with the problem and you don't have an answer, that leads to terror and ineptness. >> so wasn't defeating donald trump supposed to be easy for hillary clinton? let's ask pollster john mclaughlin. he joins us now. >> absolutely not. >> we were just talking.
you think that if trump -- that barack obama, who has not endorsed anybody yet -- he's watching closely, and that if trump keeps his numbers really high, he might do something to put one of his own people in the mix. what do you think might happen? >> my fear is a lot of people said trump can't win and hillary clinton might want him and now he's ahead of hillary in the polls. they might be thinking hilt larry -- hillary clinton might be indicted and put biden to the on the ticket. >> the president does not like donald trump. for donald trump to come out of the field of 17 was the most anti obama candidate on the field. he's been relentless in terms of challenging the policies. we've seen in our last national survey.
56% of americans want to move against the policies of barack obama. every one of those voters could vote for donald trump and over the last month you've seen trump's numbers, after he goes after obama and hillary, his negatives are coming down. his favorables are going up because hillary clinton can't get rid of her negatives. it's all related to character. >> we look at this poll number, unfavorable view of hillary clinton. this is a poll you guys did. 25% unfavorable with democrats. 30% with liberals. 49% with moderates. 52% among women. now, president obama's approval ratings are pretty high right now. why isn't that helping her if she's so closely tied to his record, why isn't she being floated -- >> his approval ratings are not great. this month we had him 50%
approved, 49% disapproved. it's the first time he's passed the net negative remark since november 2012 but it's still better than hers. she has these high negatives because of her character. we've seen her for 25 years and what do you like least about hillary clinton? she's dishonest, she's corrupt, she lies. people in -- bernie is revisiting and going back after the email scandal, the secretary of state was basically selling american foreign policy for contributors to the clinton foundation. >> last question as we wrap it up. if she stays so unfavorable, can bernie win? >> not with the super delegates. it's definitely a rigged deck. >> all right. thank you very much. coming up, does this sound racist to you? ♪ oh, say can you see? ♪ by the dawn's early light
♪ >> an espn columnist says it's forced patriotism. and what happens when one of holiday's star -- hollywood's stars says something positive about conservatives. rob lowe finds out and it's not pretty. everything you're pretty good at now, you were once, well, pretty bad at. but you learned. and got better. at experian, we believe it's the same with managing your credit. you may not be good at it now. but that's okay. because credit isn't just a score. it's a skill. and you can get better. experian. be better at credit.
and i quit smoking with chantix. i always came back to smoking. i was absolutely frustrated, absolutely. i did not think chantix would work as well as it did. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away.
tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
separate from the bike and explode. this happening in spain. somehow, no one was seriously hurt in this. and this isn't exactly a fairy tale wedding, the coast guard emergency crews sent in to rescue 150 people when a boat cruise hit a sandbar off the coast of boston. no one was hurt but the bride and groom said they hope they get a refund. ahoy, anna. would you call this systemic american racism? ♪ oh, say can you see by the dawn's early ♪ that's how an espn magazine columnist he sees cops and soldiers singing the national anthem before sporting events. in his latest column, howard bryan said this why don't more
athletes speak out on behalf of their communities? perhaps more of them would if there wasn't a chilling looming force over them. >> what do you think? is there some looming force that's causing athletes to not speak out about issues in their communities as this columnist says? >> absolutely not. when you talk about the national anthem, you should be able to sing and sing well and at least be able to make it past the first two segments of american idol and be able to do our country proud. but i don't think that there's anything looming or some ghost hanging behind that that's causing athletes not to speak out. >> yeah. when you sing the national anthem and you experience this patriotism and you have critic who say it shouldn't be done. it's almost as if you can't invite someone into your own home and sing the national anthem, what do you mean by
that? >> most of these stadiums are private property so you can invite whoever you want. it is mostly private property. if you look post 9/11, i guarantee you an article like this would have never gotten out or gotten any kind of traction at all. when you talk about patriotism. you got to go back to buddy ryan. when that national anthem was sung, of course, you want to have some diversity out there singing it, but buddy ryan stayed on that sideline. if you moved, if you scratched or you turned around and did anything, he would fine you $1,000. >> one of the most things about growing up that made me feel the most patriotic was going to games with my mom and dad and brother and putting my hand over my heart and singing the national anthem with tens of thousands of other people. in some schools you can't even say the pledge of allegiance and
if you do you have to take the one nation under god part out. how important is it? >> i think we should be patriotic toward our country and nothing is perfect and there are some things that need to be fixed. i still respect this country. you talk about memorial day weekend and people who died for this country, regardless of what color you are, a lot of people have died for this country and you ought to respect it and respect it even at sporting events. >> we've had a lot of outcry on our social media on this. this story came to us from news busters. i want you to hear some of our viewers are saying. really, everything is offending? it's totally out of control. national anthem is racist now! what have we become? and allen says this, the sheer level of offense taken at everything in this country, now it's crazy. 2016, the year common sense died. and brad says maybe he should be fired like schilling when he said something espn didn't agree with or is espn saying they
agree? how do you respond to that last one there? >> well, i don't think espn has a whole should be held accountable. we need to have good dialogue and talk to individuals about what is patriotism. you can have diversity among the races and as long as you can get past one or two segments of american idol, you should be able to sing. anybody out there messing up the national anthem. >> should espn publish this? >> i think they have the right to publish it, but i also think that the general public and people who read these articles should be smart enough to understand that this is just someone's opinion and definitely don't take it as gospel. >> randall hill, former nfl player. have a great memorial day with your family. coming up on "fox & friends," major developments on conservatives' plan to stop donald trump. who mitt romney is talking to

service thinks that a wall will. the agency reportedly dreaming of a new 14-foot white house picket fence. it comes two years after an armed man climbed over the now 7-foot fence. initially it was going to be 11 feet but now the security service is saying build it higher. and there's a look at your headlines back to you. thanks heather. i'm corey paven and i stand with the folds of honor. >> i stand with the folds of honor. this is your call to duty, the folds of honor foundation keeps the dream alive by awarding scholarships to spouses or children of those killed or wounded in service. >> i stand with the folds of honor. i stand with the folds of honor. i stand with the folds of honor. stand with us. donate today. and today we honor the men and women who have given their lives in service for this country. one organization that does that year-round is the folds of honor foundation. >> that's right. and today it hosts its annual

it's a day to acknowledge that. we're fortunate at folds not to be in a place to say i'm sorry for your sacrifice or thank you for your service but stand in that gap. we have over 10,000 scholarship recipients, spouses and children, that we're sending to school of our deceased soldiers and thanks to guy like ken march din daily -- martindale and rite aid who donated $6 million. >> this was a critical year for folds of honor. why did rite aid want to get involved in this? >> it's a very special organization. the rite aid foundation three years ago organized kid sense. it's all about giving our customers an opportunity to donate the change from their order to all kinds of great charities that support children's health and wellness. about two years ago, i had the opportunity to meet dan. he introduced our foundation to
the folds and all the great work that they are doing and we found there was just a terrific synergy between the two companies. our missions are aligned and we're really excited about helping take care of a lot of deserving young children. >> and major dan, we know one of our senior producers just got an award from you guys and our friendship with folds of honor is strong. you and i ran a marathon together and raised $50,000. how is this particular golf event different than years past that you've come on "fox & friends" to talk about? >> you hit on it, anna. number one, gaven got a big award last night and 94 million households we get to bring folds of honor but specifically the stories of those we help and every year it's different because of the thousands of families that are coming to folds and we're able to provide their education and the stories that have led them to that inherently very dark place through the sacrifice that those

good morning, my friends. it's memorial day monday, the 30th of may, 2016. this is "fox & friends." the death toll rising to six people in texas as rains continue to slam the south. one man swept out to sea attempting to rescue others. and the carolinas getting hammered by another storm. eight inches of rain already dumping on the region. the weather that may ruin your travel plans as millions of americans prepare to head home. and hillary clinton's e-mail headache about to get even worse as the mainstream media gets suspicious of the campaign's number one excuse. and he's polling higher than anyone expected. former governor gary johnson landing the libertarian nomination for president, but then he got overshadowed by this guy. >> but i just want you to know
if it's not -- >> could you watch that all day? sorry if you're eating breakfast right now and you had to witness that. the nominee is here live this morning. that guy though, the naked guy, is not going to be here.

the carolinas putting the northeast directly in its crosshairs. all of this happening on this holiday weekend. maria is live on the plaza tracking the latest and it's raining here, maria. >> you know what? good morning. a lot of crazy weather. let's start out with parts of the eastern u.s. rain as far north as portions of new england. so it will be a soggy day for some of you, and you are also looking at the threat for some storms that could potentially bring the risk for damaging winds and some flash flooding out there, and that threat extends even into portions of the northeast. stay safe out there. otherwise we're tracking storms across portions of texas, and the concern isn't just for additional rain today but even over the next several days. so you're looking at the threat for more than six inches of rain coming up. we have a number of watches in effect out there, and river flooding that continues because of this weekend's heavy rain. so, again, looking at that threat to continue out there. severe storms are another big concern across portions of the northern and central plains with even a marginal risk to see some
isolated tornadoes. isolated to parts of the dakotas. the rest of the region will be looking at strong winds and even large hail from some of the storms. temperatures right now anywhere from the plains to the eastern u.s. are very spring or summer-like for some of you. you're waking up to temperatures in the 70s. as we head into the afternoon, the temperatures will keep climbing. take a look at the pacific northwest. that's where we have temperatures a little on the cooler side. only forecast to reach the 60s and 70s for some of you. let's head back inside. >> thanks so much, maria. right now the time is four minutes after the hour and heather is in with a look at your headlines. good morning, heather. >> good morning to you and to everyone at home. outrage after a zoo shoots and kills a gorilla to save a little boy's life. >> mommy is right here. >> the cincinnati zoo defending their decision to kill the gorilla after the toddler slipped into the exhibit. some blaming the animal's death

shooting at anything and anyone that came into their path, including riddling a police car and helicopter with bullets. one man describing the chilling moment when he came face-to-face with one of the suspects. >> the dude looked and seen me across the street and shot at me. >> police shot and killed one of the suspects. the other is in custody. all four people and two officers, they were injured, but they are expected to be okay. and here is a new challenge for the white house. former new mexico governor gary johnson winning the libertarian nomination at the party's convention last night in orlando. johnson hopes to sway voters frustrated with both donald trump and hillary clinton, and a fox news poll shows johnson with 10% of the votes in a match-up with trump and clinton. the governor will join us at 7:45. and a rookie comes out of nowhere to win the greatest spectacle in racing. >> california's alexander rossi to the checkered flag, and he's
done it! >> checkered flag. you just won the indy 500, baby! >> oh, my god. >> alexander rossi overwhelmed with emotion after winning the 100th indy 500. his car was running on fumes as it crossed the finish line. this, by the way, his first indy 500 race ever. celebrating with the traditional bottle of milk. he's the first rookie to win since 2001 and he will join us on "fox & friends" tomorrow, and those are a look at your headlines. >> got milk. >> thank you. ten minutes after the hour. turning to the race for the white house and donald trump using memorial day weekend to express his disgust with the va. >> and marco rubio putting his foot in his mouth over this comment about trump's hands. >> you know what they say about men with small hands. you can't trust them. you can't trust them. >> yeah. the florida senator now throwing his support behind his biggest
campaign rival. >> kristin fisher is live in washington with more on these developments. good morning, kristin. >> good morning. so donald trump delivered a speech yesterday tailor made for veterans and the thousands of bikers that ride into the nation's capital every memorial day weekend. trump pledged to rebuild our military, he promised to protect the second amendment, and he blasted the va over those long wait times for veterans in need of medical care. trump even proposed allowing vets to see a private doctor while the government foots the bill. >> these illegal immigrants are taking much care, really are taken much better care by this country, taken care of than our veterans, and that's not going to happen. >> something else many thought would never happen, marco rubio supporting trump, but yesterday rubio announced he was all in. he even said he'd be willing to spoke on trump's behalf at the republican convention. >> my policy differences with
donald trump, i spent 11 months talking about them, so i think they're well underzostood that said, i don't want hillary clinton to be president. if there's something i can do to help that from happening and it's helpful to the cause, i'd most certainly be honored to be considered for that. >> rubio said he'd apologize to trump about making that comment about his small hands. rubio says it's not who i am and i shouldn't have done it and it embarrassed his family. hard to believe they were trading such personal jabs just less than three months ago. >> it's politics. two weeks is old news. thanks, kristin. >> great to see you this morning. if you watched a lot of the sunday shows you see the clinton surrogates out trying to defend her and this whole e-mail scandal. it was probably her worst week ever. did you see adam schiff on chris wallace. chris wallace pressed him yesterday when he tried to say this is a lot like what colin powell did. >> comparison with secretary powell -- >> can he -- >> forgive me.
>> i'm sorry, hillary clinton is running for president. colin powell is not running for president. the rules in 2004 were completely different. >> i know you don't want to talk about colin powell. >> it's irrelevant to the issue. >> it's not irrelevant in this sense. >> how can she say it was secure when they had to turn off the server was there were attacks? >> there's no interest in anyone here but secretary clinton. that to me -- >> really? because she's the only one running for president. >> yes, but does that mean other secretaries didn't use the same practices? >> i think, first of all, we've shown it is different and secondly i think it's a red herring, sir, and i would expect more from you. >> chris wallace says let's compare apples to apples, not apples to oranges. last week was a bad week for hillary clinton. it's sunday shows often set the tone for the week ahead. >> the difference though, i don't know that democrats can necessarily use this colin powell comparison anymore because now with the state department e-mail, the difference becomes intent.
we have not seen an e-mail from colin powell where he writes to an aide and says, you know what? i don't want to have a state department account because i want to be protected from future freedom of information act ". we do have that from hillary clinton. she alludes to that in an exchange with huma abedin. adam schiff is on the house intel committee, you would think he might be a little more worried about this, is that hillary clinton's excuse was never about, oh, we wanted to make sure the classified stuff was safe and i thought i could do a better job. it was about convenience. she said she didn't want to have two phones. she said that on the first day at the u.n. >> and she's frustrated having to walk out to the hallway to have communications on a regular basis. major developments this morning on the conservatives' plan to run a third-party candidate against donald trump. has mitt romney finally found his challenger to trump? dr. ben carson is going to join us live. there he is.

16 minutes after the top of the hour. the trump critic leading the efe effort to find an independent candidate claiming he found one. bill kristol saying, just a heads up over this holiday weekend. there will be an independent candidate, an impressive one with a strong team and real chance. this after kristol met with romney. here to weigh in, former gop candidate, now a trump supporter, dr. ben carson. good morning, dr. carson. >> good morning, and happy memorial day. >> thank you. same to you. so bill kristol, who once predicted that marco rubio would win the new hampshire primary and once predicted that barack obama would not beat hillary
clinton in a single primary state now says that an independent candidate with a good record is going to come on and run. is there anybody out there who would be more impressive than the crop of republican candidates that have already run this cycle? like yourself. >> well, i think what bill kristol and many others like him need to recognize is america right now is like a cruise ship that is about to go off of niagara falls with tremendous carnage and death. what you have to do first a recognize the problem, stop the ship, turn it around, and then move in the other direction. they want to push a button and all of a sudden all of that is done. we have to make progress, and remember this, a quarter of a century ago another clinton was running for the white house, and it was the entrance of a third-party candidate, ross perot, that made it possible for him to win. >> right. >> now, wouldn't it be ironic if the same thing happened again
this time? wouldn't we be smart to be able to learn from things that have happened in the past? >> well, you know, of course -- >> doesn't matter who the candidate is. >> true, but then, of course, you have gary johnson who is going to be joining us a little later. former new mexico governor, he jest got the libertarian nod and that could also hurt donald trump's chances of getting into the white house. have you heard -- i mean, mitt romney, we've been hearing the courting between bill kristol and romney. do you know who this potential third-party candidate will be? >> i have heard rumors like everyone else has, but i'm hoping that whoever that third-party candidate is will just stop for a moment and think about what the implications are of allowing hillary clinton or someone like her to get in there, and they get two to four supreme court picks and completely change the nature of this country and destroy the prospects for their children and their grandchildren to have the same opportunities that they had. they need to think about the big
picture and stop worrying about their petty little differences. stop the ship, and then we'll turn it around, and then we'll move it in the other direction. it's not all going to happen in one fell swoop. >> since we have you here, there was a report in the "new york times" out this week saying there was some infighting going on with the trump campaign. paul manafort and corey lewandowski were pitted against each other some sources were telling them they were on sunday shows saying that's not the case. is there growing papes going on in the trump campaign as they turn their attention to a general election? >> what is clear is that there are individuals who are attempting to create conflict and who are concerned, you know, about their own power. now, whether they're inside or outside doesn't particularly matter. what we need to be concentrating on is winning the white house again and stopping the destruction of our nation, and i
would appeal to all of those people who are attempting, you know, to create this conflict to stop. we don't need it. but i don't see any terrible thing going on with the people that i'm talking to in the trump campaign. >> okay. >> dr. ben carson, thank you very much. >> okay. a pleasure. coming up, have you seen this poll? libertarian nominee gary johnson actually a player in the race for president. we're going to ask him about his shot at the white house ahead. and does this sound racist to you? ♪ o say can you see >> an espn columnist says the national anthem at sporting events when police officers or first responders sing it is fake and staged patriotism. former nfl player randall hill sets the record straight on that next.

inflammatory liberal leaning perspective. you know, he's entitled to his opinion, he wrote, it but espn recently fired curt schilling for a controversial statement that he made from a conservative perspective. so now let's see what espn does. >> ball is in espn's court. >> let's see if there's a druoue standard. >> we had randall hill on the sh show. he said we can't have espn be responsible for everything their employees say, but it will be interesting to see what -- if they remove that post or if they end up not publishing it or there's some other of other suspension for something else. >> our producers gave us some info yesterday that this same columnist has written things in the past. terrible timing on memorial day weekend too when patriotism should be, you know, running strong and red, white, and blue flying through the air. so it's -- the timing is not good. wu one thing that bothers me is i feel so patriotic when i'm at an
nfl game or a major league baseball became or basketball game. when you put your hand over your heart and sing the national anthem and it's something that's important for our kids to learn when they're young and in many schools you aren't even hearing the pledge of allegiance and if you are you aren't hearing one nation under god. >> i remember being at yankee stadium one week after the 9/11 attacks, everyone was singing, police officers included. >> it's a great way to unify us especially when we're so divided. >> let us know your thoughts. there's a thread on our facebook page. coming up, if you're dreading your trip to the airport, things just got a whole lot worse. the glitches that have airlines given out handwritten boarding passes. that's next. and on this memorial day we talk with the man who changed the war on terror forever. the man who killed osama bin laden, rob o'neill joins us with his thoughts on memorial day. that's next. ♪

years ago came after we went to the 9/11 museum, and you had a chance to meet the family members of some of the victims of 9/11. you saw how moved they were by your story. what kind of a feeling are you getting from some of the folks that you're meeting out there in oklahoma this weekend? >> good morning, peter. yeah, the reason i came out with the story at first was because of the families, the reaction to the closure for some of what they've gone through, their worst nightmare. there's a feeling here too of true patriots out here. we all realize we're here for memorial day but there's more to it than having a cheeseburger and playing golf. every day at 1:00 p.m. they play taps and the bell goes off 13 times and it's just a minute and a half where you can really remember the people that gave us the right to do this, great reflection, but also remembering that the fallen don't want us to necessarily mourn them. they want us to do this. they would do this with us if they were still here. a lot of patriots here, a lot of
veterans, a lot of active duty here. patriots on both sides, in uniform and those who have never worn a uniform. the feel something outstanding. >> major dan rooney, tell us about the message of folds of honor on this memorial day now that the sun has come up and getting ready for the big golf tournament. >> yeah, the sun is shining here. we're going to have a great day. but to rob's point, you know, i have always said some of the greatest patriots i ever met never put on a uniform, and that's what's so special about this day is we bring together, you know, amazing heroes like rob o'neill, how humbled we are to have him with us, but our sponsors, our recipient families, the donors that make it possible for us to award last year over $13 million in scholarships to spouses and children who have lost a loved one, and they're here and so you get a real deep appreciation and sense of that sacrifice, but as rob mentioned, there's also a celebration, and the ones that have gone, over three-quarters
of a million people have made that ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. they want us to celebrate today as well. so we'll have a great day and combining the reverence that this day represents and the fact that without memorial day this country has no other holidays. >> that's a good point. >> and we know that it's not justces that are serving. it's really their entire family and that's what folds of honor is all about, making sure that no families are left behind on the battlefield. rob, have you been able to meet me of the scholarship recipients and if so, what are they saying to you? >> yes, i have. a met few of the recipients yesterday. they're incredible, young kids that have lost their father and, you know, they got up and give public speeches, and just the pride that they have and, you know, it's obviously the most devastating loss you can imagine, but just the recipients here totally grateful. it's such a great program. and it's just a reminder too that someone's father, someone's mother is out there right now. the fight is not over. they're in there. they're in iraq, they're in
syria, whether or not we believe -- they're fighting now and this is to remember them as well. the families are being affected and this is why this day is so important. >> rob and major dan, i understand you both have an announcement to make about something you are doing with outback steakhouse this memorial day. >> yeah. so i'm holding, peter, the folds of honor outback coin and outback has launched a program across this country. they sell these for $20 a piece and literally selling thousands of americans -- to americans to benefit folds of honor, and they can bring it back in for a coca-cola product, who is another great supporter, who has donated nearly $1 million. so a great way to get america into the tradition of the military. >> yeah. >> wonderful. >> don't mind those blooming onions or the potato skins either. >> oh, yeah, of course. >> i know, the way you look, you do not eat blooming onions. >> every morning for breakfast.

shows 10% of voters prefer him as their pick for president. could he be a deciding factor in 2016? let's ask him. libertarian party presidential nominee gary johnson. good morning. >> good morning, sir. >> good morning. thanks for having me on this morning. >> so, governor johnson, i live out in washington. there are a lot of reporters and people who talk about the race all the time. you're known -- the most famous position that you have is that you want to legalize pot. do you think that that's why you got 10% this time? >> oh, no way. look, i'm fiscally conservative. i'm the small government guy. if you want small government, i've really got a proven record, and bill weld was also nominated this weekend as my vice presidential candidate, so we are two governors that have curved in heavily blue states as republicans, so we're small government guys, but we're also socially liberal. and i think that's the makeup of
most people in this country, and i think the libertarian party actually represents most people in this country, but they just don't know that they're libertarian. >> this is going to be a race to watch because take a look at this new fox news poll. 2016 presidential voter preference. you now with 10%, donald trump, 42%, 39% for hillary clinton. of course, we've been talking about it's unfavorables among donald trump and hillary clinton. these two presumptive nominees have both very high unfavorables. what separates you from those two individuals, and do you think that you could be the big disrupter? >> well, really libertarians kind of the best of both parties, or at least what the parties are supposed to be about. aren't republicans supposed to be about small government? aren't democrats supposed to be about civil liberties, people being able to make choices in their own lives as long as those choices doesn't adversely affect others? and, look, with regard to these
military interventions, how about some skepticism at the table when it comes to the fact that we have boots on the ground, we're dropping bombs, we're flying drones that are killing thousands of innocent people that at the end of the day it's having the unintended consequence of making the world less safe than more safe. you know what? we've got 69 treaties with foreign countries where we are obligated to defend their borders, and these are treaties that were not negotiated by congress. they were negotiated by the president and the military. involve congress in all this. they've abdicated their responsibility. >> because of those low favorability numbers for clinton and trump, there's a concern among both parts that some voters are just going to stay home on election day. what are you going to do to try to court voters that are disenchanted with their own parties on the democratic side and the republican side specifically? >> well, to court is just being able to be in the polls. i mean, it's really a
self-fulfilling prophecy. you point out a poll where i'm at 10%, but guess what? there have been 40 other polls where my name hasn't appeared. i believe if my name were just to be included in the polls, i think the scrutiny that would go along with myself -- my record and bill weld's record, and we are running here really as a partnership. i think we have strengths that complement one another and that we really, really -- like i say, two former republican governors serving in heavily blue states. isn't that kind of the makeup of most people? fiscally conservative, small government. and, look, shouldn't we be able to make decisions in our own lives, always come down on the side of choice when it comes to individual freedom and liberty. >> well, this race just got a whole heck of a lot more interesting, governor gary johnson. we appreciate you joining us this morning. libertarian presidential
candidate for 2016. thanks so much for joining us on this memorial day. >> thanks a lot. >> thank you. and it is memorial day. hey, for those that have given the ultimate sacrifice and i heard your earlier guest saying, hey, if it weren't for this holiday, there wouldn't be any other holiday. >> thank you so much. memorial day deals are coming up next. rin, pineapple, blueberry, strawberry, strawberry... strawberry... salad with chicken. at panera. food as it should be. don't let dust and allergies get and life's beautiful moments. with flonase allergy relief, they wont. most allergy pills only control one inflammatory substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. flonase changes everything. shall we say, unnecessarily complex.h back cards are, limiting where you can earn bonus cash back... then those places change every few months... please. it's time you got the quicksilver card from capital one.

rain near houston. >> and now tropical depression bonnie is putting the northeast directly in its crosshairs. maria is live on the plaza tracking the very latest. good morning, maria. >> good morning. and the official start of the atlantic hurricane season isn't until june 1st. yet we've been seeing some action. the first named storm was earlier this year in january, but now we have a depression named bonnie that's spilling in a lot of moisture all across parts of the eastern seaboard across the u.s., and in the northeast we're feeling the impacts as well and some of that moisture could actually be firing up some storms that could bring some isolated severe weather out there. so we're watching closely for that. otherwise in texas and oklahoma this morning dealing with the rain and thunderstorms rolling through, and more heavy rain is on the way for parts of texas. keep in mind we got hit hard over the weekend with a lot of heavy rain out there and flash flooding across portions of the southern portions of that state and the forecast is for potentially another six inches or more of rain out there. severe weather concern as well across the northern and central plains with damaging winds, large hail, and there's even a
tornado threat. it's very localized though across parts of the dakotas, but nonetheless, still in place. it's not a zero threat of a tornado out there. otherwise, we do have temperatures on the warm side already this morning from the plains to the eastern u.s. the cool spot across the nation today on this memorial day will be in the northwestern part of the u.s. where temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s this afternoon. leads head back inside. >> thanks, maria. >> four minutes after the hour and heather has a look at what's making headlines. good morning, heather. >> good morning to you and to everyone at home. a story that's been troubling people all morning long. outrage after a zoo shoots and kills a gorilla to save a little boy's life. >> oh, my god! >> really scary. the cincinnati zoo defending their decision to kill the gorilla after the toddler slipped in the exhibit saying that it was the only way to save the boy's life. that little boy is now home and doing okay.
but some are blaming the animal's death on the child's parents calling them neglectful and, of course, peta chiming in saying even under the best circumstances, captivity is never acceptable for gorillas or other primates and in cases like this it's even deadly. visitors are remembering the gorilla with flowers and a makeshift memorial at the zoo. jack hannah, director of the columbus zoo and aquarium joins us in a few minutes to talk a little bit more about this. police searching for a motive in a wild shooting rampage sending people running for their lives in the suburbs. >> get in your house! >> the scene leaving people in a normally quiet family-friendly houston neighborhood shaken and shocked obviously. police say that it all started when one of the men walked into an auto shop yesterday morning, opened fire killing a customer and putting a community on lockdown. the gunmen allegedly arming themselves with ar-15s randomly
shooting at anything and anyone that came into their path, including riddling a police car and a helicopter with bullets. one man describing the chilling moment when he fame face-to-face with one of those suspects. >> the dude looked and seen me across the street and shot at me. >> police shot and killed one of those suspects. the other is in custody. and all four people and two officers were injured but they're all expected to be okay. and a travel nightmare at jfk airport. a computer outage causing massive and frustrating check-in delays. we're learning that service has been restored but up to 1,000 people online at one point last night as airline staff were forced to hand write baggage claims. the airport expects normal operations today. and those are a look at your
headlines. >> aren't you glad you're not flying today? >> actually i have this boarding pass that says i need to go back to washington later but i guess i could just write in somewhere -- >> you can just write in -- >> somewhere it's not raining. >> i'm official. >> how about miami? do you want to go to miami. >> now you're official. >> thank you, clayton. >> security. on to the race for the white house. donald trump using memorial day weekend to express his disgust with the va. >> it comes as one of his fiercest campaign rivals vows to support him in cleveland. >> kristin fisher is live with more on the latest developments. good morning. >> good morning. trump has had a relatively rocky relationship with veterans ever since he made that comment about senator john mccain. remember, trump said, i like people who weren't captured, referring to the time mccain spent as a prisoner of war. it's a sensitive subject given the fact that yesterday's rolling thunder ride is all about honoring our p.o.w.s, but organizers of the event still invited trump to speak and he was applauded for his plan to rebuild our military and revamp
the va. >> of our vets, our most cherished people, thousands of people are dying waiting in line to see a doctor. that is not going to happen anymore, and if there's a wait, we're going to give the right for those people to go to a private doctor or even a public doctor and get themselves taken care of and we're going to pay the bill. >> over the weekend trump also scooped up support from one of his fiercest former rivals, rub rubio. rubio announced he'd apologized for some of his more personal attacks against trump. >> i apologized to him for that. i said i'm sorry i said that. it's not who i am and i shouldn't have done it. i didn't like what it reflected on me. it embarrassed my family. it's not who i am. >> rubio also said that he'd be willing to speak for trump at the republican convention but he ruled out becoming trump's running mate though trump would say, in fact, he's already said that rubio is not even being
considered. peter, anna, and clayton. >> thank you. >> ted cruz could be next. bill kristol, what a development that could be unfolding over this holiday weekend. bill kristol saying, look, watch out because guess what? a third-party candidate is in the mix, that there is going to be an impressive third-party candidate with a strong team and a real chance to take on donald trump. >> we had on one of donald trump's supporters, former gop contender dr. ben carson. he's supporting donald trump now, and he says this is a big mistake. >> i think what bill kristol and many others like him need to recognize is america right now is like a cruise ship that is about to go off of niagara falls with tremendous carnage and death. i'm hoping that whoever that third-party candidate is will just stop for a moment and think about what the implications are of allowing hillary clinton or someone like her to get in there
and they get two to four supreme court picks and completely change the nature of this country and destroy the prospect for their children and their grandchildren to have the same opportunities that they had. they need to think about the big picture and stop worrying about their petty little differences. >> something really interesting about kristol saying there's going to be an impressive conservative with a good record coming forward. didn't conservatives already have an impressive list? >> a huge list. >> they had their all-star team, bush, christie, rubio -- >> cruz. >> they had these people who already ran for president this year. >> now it's probably going to be somebody else on this list. maybe we could put it up on our facebook page and our viewers will weigh in. who do you think it will be? they say it will be somebody impressive and somebody to take on donald trump. next up, on the sunday shows the thing that was dominating the headlines there was hillary clinton's e-mail scandal. she just can't get away from it. she had a bad week last week with the inspector general's
report coming out. you remember when bernie sanders was first face to face with her and he said nobody cares about your damn e-mails? he's starting to change his tune a limb bit. listen to this. >> the inspector general just came out with a report. it was not a good report for secretary clinton. that is something that the american people, democrats and delegates, are going to have to take a hard look at. they will be keeping it in mind. i don't have to tell them that. i mean, everybody in america is keeping it in mind and certainly the superdelegates are. your job is to make sure that donald trump is defeated and defeated badly. >> so is it desperation time for bernie sanders? as senator feinstein and others have called for him to hang it up and get out of the race. he's saying maybe this is his only play to go after the superdelegates and remind them of the e-mail scandal. >> in january he said there's a legal process playing out. i don't want to interfere. as soon as this report comes out there he is saying, you know what? superdelegates, have a look. by mentioning the superdelegates
who he thinks should pay attention to this, it's a win/win for him because he's reminding democratic voters that no matter how bad the news is about hillary, there are these party elites who cannot be shaken from supporting her. >> and one thing that bernie backers have been getting really energyized about is saying this system is rigged and the establishment is trying to coronate hillary clinton and it's not fair against bernie sanders. well, he was on one of the sunday shows and he said it's not a rig system but it is a dumb system and i will try to do things the fair way. i will try to court the superdelegates in states where i won overwhelmingly, not in the states where hillary clinton did because he thinks that's the fair way to do it. >> maybe he was reading that huffington post report that said an indictment was about to come down for hillary clinton and then t"the huffington post" pulled it off the website. did they know something they ined inadvertently published early? >> oh, man. more on the horrific story
at the zoo. >> a 3-year-old child has fall noon the gorilla cage and the gorilla is slamming the child into the wall and the child is in the water. >> critics saying the zoo's decision to kill the gorilla was inhumane. did they make the right call? jack hannah weighs in next. and lee brice will give the son of a fallen hero the surprise of his life live from his father. that's coming up. don't go anywhere. you're watching "fox & friends." this is going to be great. i take pictures of sunrises, but with my back pain i couldn't sleep and get up in time. then i found aleve pm. aleve pm is the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. i'm back. aleve pm for a better am.

with a non-insulin option, click to activate your within. ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity. everyone is talking about this story. terrifying encounter for a 4-year-old boy at the cincinnati zoo. the toddler calling into a gorilla exhibit forcing zoo officials to kill the endangered animal. >> oh, my god. oh, my god. >> everybody back up. >> looks like he's dragging him through the water but some witnesses say the gorilla was trying to protect the boy. so did the zoo officials make the right call? here to weigh in is the director emeritus of the columbus zoo and
aquarium jack hanna. great to see you. welcome back to the show. did the zoo make the right call here in putting down this gorilla? >> they did, but let me say ten seconds to say something if i could. remember something, the hanna family, the columbus zoo, the zoo world, we love this animal. however, we've also given millions and millions to the gorillas to save these animals. this gorilla, when you look at what happened at the cincinnati zoo could really happen anywhere whether it's a zoo or a water park or amusement park. what happened here what they had to do had to be done. if people watched what happened, they heard the screaming going on. this is a silverback male, not a female. the silverback has a kind of responsibility to take care of his family. i have a home right next to gorillas in rwanda, i have seen the gorillas since 1982.
both lowland and mountain gorillas. the silverback males, the power they have, they can take a green coconut and bust it like a marshmall marshmallow. their power is beyond ba loaf. six full-grown men cannot handle a chimpanzee full grown. with all that screaming going on, the thing plops in there, which is the young child, what is this, what is this? he runs him through there like that. that was a dead give away. you're talking milliseconds. i have seen other animals when it pops them, like getting a shot. you jump and obviously it takes five to ten minutes for a gorilla to go to sleep. >> that's an important point. people are saying why not a tranquilizer, you're saying because it would have maybe made him angrier and could have killed the boy? >> yes. more than likely. what would you do if you had a shot come up as you were sitting there and somebody pops you in the butt with a big old shot.
you're going to jump, aren't you? i hope you would. especially if you hit a nerve. this isno-brainer. there was not a millisecond to waste. there's animal life and human life involved here, everyone. obviously some might say, well, can the cincinnati zoo or columbus zoo or any of our zoos do better? safety is the number one priority. the visitor, the animal, the employees. we practice hours and hours every week. we are required to practice safety all the time. i don't know what happened here. i don't know where the mother was. i can't blame it on her or anybody. i don't know what happened but, you know, how safe can we build a racetrack or a water park or an amusement park? how safe do we have to go? we have responsibility, all of us do with our families and we do the best we can. >> yeah. we're almost out of time. five seconds, ten seconds here. i mean, unfortunately, i wish we could talk about this all morning long. this idea that the parents maybe were neglectful. where do you come down on that? >> i don't know. we have children -- hundreds of
children in our zoos and summer camps. we monitor the children. maybe the mother was distracted by something. i don't know. but as a parent you go to the zoo or a shopping center or a water park or whatever, you have to take care of them. >> jack hanna, great to see you. more "fox & friends" coming up in a few moments. thanks so much, jack. >> thank you. hat aisle for the allergy relief that starts working in as little as 30 minutes and contains the best oral decongestant. live claritin clear, with claritin-d.
>> well, here to tell us what it means to them is the family from the video. john, priscilla, and bryce in new york. i hadn't seen the video yet and it's getting me teared up too. >> it's a pretty good one. >> where did you get this idea, john, to do this. i know it's tough to be away from your family and this was the first time you were going to be deployed and have to leave your son behind. what gave you that idea? >> i just enjoy spending time with him and i knew that i didn't want to wait until the end, so i was actually just sitting at work and it came to me out of completely nowhere and i came home and told her this is what i want to do. >> and bryce, little buddy, can you hear me? >> can you say hi? >> hi. >> what did that mean to you to get to go trick-or-treating and dress up and your dad got to take you to all the neighbors'
houses? what did that mean to have your dad next to you and holding your hand? did you get some candy from the neighbors? >> did you get candy? >> no chocolates, please. >> no chocolate candies. >> mom, did this make you fall in love even more with your husband? you know watching him -- >> it sure did. yep. and then i watched the video and over and over and over again. >> are you surprised, dad, about how the internet has just taken this and run with it and how many times it's been viewed? >> yeah. it was actually funny because we were like, oh, my god, 700,000, 800,000. all of a sudden four days later, 21 million, all right. so we weren't expecting it. >> what about your comrades? what do they think of it? is it something they may consider doing with their children too? >> yeah. well, that was the one they think i saw in the comments was people were tagging people and
saying, hey, we should do this for our kid. there were people i didn't know, so what made me happy was knowing that other families are going to hopefully do the same idea and that child will have just as much fun as bryson did. >> how did you pull each of them off? i know with the trick-or-treating you say you gave about ten of your neighbors candy so that bryson could go over and say trick-or-treat and they wouldn't go what is this kid doing in a costume? it's not october 31st? how did you pull the others off? how did you pull off christmas? >> well, christmas was the easy one. i just had to put a tree together. and wrap presents which is like my least favorite thing to do, but it was all worth it. the only thing -- the only holiday we weren't able to get to was the fourth of july because we lost the sparklers. >> we found them yesterday though. >> i found them yesterday in my house so we're going to do that tonight. >> well, it's nice that you can have memorial day weekend with your family too. maybe you can use the sparklers today. thank you so much.

>> two governors that have served in heavily blue states as republicans, so we're small government guys, but we're also socially liberal, and i think that's the makeup of most people in this country, and i think the libertarian party actually represents most people in this country but they just don't know they're libertarian. >> and a fox news poll shows johnson with 10% of the votes in a match-up with trump and clinton. and it's a line that democrats love to use against donald trump. >> building walls won't do that. it won't boost our economy and it won't enhance our security. >> apparently the secret service thinks that it will though. the agency is reportedly dreaming of a new 14-foot white house picket fence. this comes two years after you may remember an armed man climbed over the now seven-foot fence. initially it was going to be 11 feet, about you now the security
service is saying build it higher. and finally talk about a big oops. "the huffington post" accidentally indicts hillary clinton? the liberal news site quickly pulling a blog post that said the fbi plans to pursue charges against her. the article also calling the clinton foundation a, quote, criminal enterprise engaged in money laundering and soliciting bribes for political favors. and those are a look at your headlines, and now to anna. >> all right. heather, thank you so much. i'm going to hand it out to the guys on the plaza. we're trying to figure out who makes the better burger on the barbecue. good morning. >> we're going to try to settle this. it's fleet week in new york city and we know the brave men and women our mirtime services are physically strong but who is the toughest in the kitchen? we have three food specialists. all three of them
competing. we'll start with david. nice to see you this morning from the navy. what's the secret to your best burger? >> i just like to just try different things. sometimes i will just do freestyle and put whatever i want in it or sometimes i'll try something new and find a recipe that i haven't done in a while and try and fill it out. >> okay. so today though you're making -- what are you guys making? >> this is a bleu cheese bacon burger. >> bleu cheese bacon burger. what's the key to the bacon? jur cooking it ahead of time or chopping it up raw -- >> it was cooked ahead of time and then i mix it in with the bleu cheese and the seasonings. i take the meat and form the patty and i'm getting ared to form the patty. >> when you form the patty, what is the key? >> i just do it with my hands and try to make it a little bit thinner so it's easier to cook and it's not -- doesn't take as long. >> we'll see if your burger stacks up against, peter, who do you have over there? >> we have coast guard food
specialist michael. charred avocado bison burger. you started cooking inspired by your grandfather who landed on normandy beach. >> he served in world war ii. i wanted to carry on the tradition. they definitely inspired me to join the service. >> what do you have on the grill? >> bison burgers. grilling up avocados. caramelized onions. a whole mix of things. >> thank you very much for this. it smells great. >> all right, peter. third unp is jermaine cleary. this smells fantastic. >> thank you very much. >> smoked bacon burger. >> apple smoked bacon. >> jot junot just regular bacon. >> simple ingredients, staying inside the box. do what you know best. >> stick to the basics. i also see some onions. >> caramelized onions right there. a little sweeter.
>> are you confident up against these guys? >> very confident. >> does this smell pretty good? >> it smells great. >> it's going to be a stiff competition. we want to thank fairway market for donating fantastic meat and home depot for firing up the grills for us. the fantastic weber grills. ready for it? >> definitely. >> i'm ready to eat. >> we'll bring some in for anna. >> we have a great crowd, if you feed them, they will come. 38 minutes after the hour. don't go away. lee brice is here with a memorial day surprise for a family who actually inspired one of his songs. that's next. goodbye icky sunscreen.

what knee pain?? what sore elbow? advil liqui-gels make pain a distant memory nothing works faster stronger or longer what pain? advil. hi, friends. good morning. 41 minutes after the hour. today we pause to remember the brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. here with a special message is
fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. >> as a boy i always looked forward to memorial day to celebrate the first real summer day. my father would take my brother chris and i to sears and we would swing the newest baseball bats. so much ahead of us. one year as we entered the store my father, a marine veteran who loved poetry, looked up at an american flag over the door and recited these lines. in flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses row on row. i asked him what that meant and he told me that it was memorial day, and that flanders field in belgium was the final resting place of many allied soldiers in world war i. he pointed to a man sitting just inside the store with a vfw hat holding a box full of red paper poppies. they nodded to each other with the recognition of shared service, and then he then told us about his own service. i never had the privilege or the pain of military service, but we
learned at our house at an early age the importance of remembering those who died for us. i heard about marines who missed their mothers and wives more than words could express who were smart and talented and funny and strong and whose lives ended far away at 18 or 19 tenders years. politicians and pundits call theirs the ultimate sacrifice. the price of our freedom. but for the loved ones who survive the sacrifice of korea, vietnam, afghanistan, iraq, and so many other places, there is little poetry in their pain. and that is why and who we remember today, the men and women who died because they were proud to be americans. our obligation today is to be as proud of them as they were of a future they could not live to see but died building.
i know that my own father who was a drill instructor and a platoon leader wounded in battle felt proud in life but responsible in death for the men he couldn't bring home from eiw ji jima. for him memorial day came on most days and some nights until he rejoined his lost platoon a few years ago. at sears that day my father wanted to buy a color tv, so that night we could see america walk on the moon. when he asked where it was made, the salesman quietly told him japan. i could see in his face that he was disappointed, and we left the store. on the way out he gave a dollar to the man from the vfw and chris and i each got poppies. my brother chris saluted him and he was saluted back. on that day we forever learned about service, about duty, about americans loved and lost, and
about country, but most of all about remembering all of those things at once. in the poem the souls of the war dead enlist us from the beyond. it says take up our quarrel with the foe. to you from failing hands we throw, the torch be yours to hold it high. if ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep though poppies grow in flanders field. today and always america proudly holds your torch high. >> thank you, peter. pewter johnson, jr. there. coming up on "fox & friends," we all know country music superstar lee brice. ♪ i drive your truck ♪ i roll every window down >> country music star is here with a big memorial day surprise

children. before his last deployment, gilbert sold his third-generation family truck. >> nearly ten years later with the help of folds of honor and lee brice, the truck was found and given back to his family. >> back with us this morning is major dan rooney of folds and honor and country music singer dan brice joined by major gi gilbe gilbert's sons troy and austin. major dan, tell us about this story. >> i think you hit it right on the head. i always say in life if you tell someone a fact, they might learn it. you tell them the truth, they probably believe you, but if you tell them a story and it's a powerful story, that's what lives in people's hearts and minds. this weekend is about the stories of the families that folds of honor supports, 10,000 recipients across this country. i have guys like lee in supporting us means the world. but this story really hits close to home for me as an f-16 fighter pilot myself. i wear troy's ki bracelet on my
wrist and troy sold his truck before he deployed in 2007 and didn't return and left five children behind and his wife ginger, and we were able to locate the truck through ginger's new husband, colonel rovella and it's just awesome to be here to share this story with fox nation. >> and, lee, what's your connection to this family? >> well, i was just a blessed individual to be able to go hang out and do an event for folds, and we were there to be there for the whole support, and then i just kind of randomly in the process i got to meet ginger, and a part of her story that she tells a lot isn't told in public a lot, and she just -- we just got to talking about this truck, and i have this song "i drive your truck" and just a little
personal connection to that. and so that just lit a little spark in our minds to kind of -- to take this truck and find it, you know, and bring it back into this family. and i didn't know how to do that, you know, but what we found a bunch of folks that help and dig in and we thought it would just be so special to be able to try to bring it back into the lives of a family. so that's really what we did. i'm just literally a blessed bystander to be able to be a part of a story and a song was a big part of it. >> the song was a massive success. we just heard about the tragic true story behind it, and major dan, i understand that you guys have a surprise for austin and grayson gilbert this morning. >> so boston and grayson, if you could join us over here and
ginger and this guy just got his driver's license so it's super cool. this one is headed off to smu to play soccer, and when we got this truck, it was barely drivable, and a good friend of ours, troy bundy at iron cross motors took this as his own project, and has put it back together, and this is the first time these guys are going to see it. but i told lee it will ultimately end up being the oldest truck in america because this thing will be around for 100 years and -- >> unbelievable. >> beauty. >> and -- >> third generation truck. >> we're so proud to be able to -- >> here it comes. major dan, what did you guys do to this truck? >> oh, my gosh. >> we did nothing. iron cross did it all, but it's got troy's squadron on the front, the triple nickel. it has his -- >> stereo system for the boys.
>> stereo system from kicker. troy's silhouette is on the back tailgate of this truck with the f-16, and it's his legacy, right? and these guys are going to be able to have piece of troy and we're blessed to provide scholarships for their education for the family, but we're so happy and, lee, the song that he wrote inspired all this, and the good lord working through him and the tentacles that come out of this, what a blessing for all of us. so you guys will have to fight who gets to take it -- >> i'm wondering -- >> and who has it in san antonio. >> maybe ginger gets to drive it for a while. >> here we go. >> major dan, ask -- we want to see them get into the car and ask them what they think about . major dan, if you can do that, get close to them so we can hear them on the microphone. >> so what do you think? i mean when you look at this right now, we'll flip around. >> i mean i don't even have
words honestly. >> lee, what does this mean -- >> you can't -- >> you can't put that into words. >> yeah. it's a tough thing to kind of take in and an awesome thing to take in at the same time. >> your song. >> yeah. and you can't hear, but, you know, "i drive your truck" is playing on the stereo system in there which any 16-year-old would be proud to have because this thing will blast the windows out, but, yeah -- just awesome, brother. >> oh, my goodness. >> you just have to imagine what's going through their minds, all the memories that they made with their dad when he was still around and all the great memories they're going to be able to make because of folds of honor and lee brice. >> his legacy lives on in that truck, of course, and so touching. lee brice, major dan rooney out there at the folds of honor, the patriot cup. thanks so much, guys. go to folds of honor.org and you
can touch lives that way by making donations on this memorial day. ♪ (vo) if you have type 2 diabetes, you may know what it's like to deal with high... and low blood sugar. januvia (sitagliptin) is a once-daily pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar. januvia works when your blood sugar is high and works less when your blood sugar is low, because it works by enhancing your body's own ability to lower blood sugar. plus januvia, by itself, is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). januvia should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. tell your doctor if you have a history of pancreatitis. serious side effects can happen, including pancreatitis which may be severe and lead to death. stop taking januvia and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area which may be pancreatitis. tell your doctor right away and stop taking januvia if you have an allergic reaction that causes swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or affects your breathing or
