loved ones. >> want to bring in our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr. tell us, first of all, what do we know about how this even happened? >> reporter: well, suzanne, the military is saying seven marines were killed when a 60 millimeter mortar shell, already in the tube, in the weapon essentially exploded. seven marines killed, a number injured and medevac'd to hospital. likely with serious trauma injuries about the training situation, they would have been standing quite close to the mortar and to the weapon when it exploded. now a major investigation, of course, under way trying to determine what exactly happened and trying to see how they go forward from here. but seven military families, suzanne, getting the worst possible news today. >> such a shame. thank you, barbara. appreciate that. a plan now to commit mass murder on a college campus. police in orlando, florida, they say they're trying to find out more about what this guy
intended here. talking about the 30-year-old former student at university of central florida who killed himself yesterday. as police moved in. they were responding to a fire alarm and a 911 call. what they found, however, was shocking. ed lavandera has the details. >> reporter: when the fire alarm sounded inside the dormitory tower on the university of central florida campus, all of the students scrambled to get out. all except james. >> they found the subject dead from a single gunshot wound to the head. >> reporter: the 30-year-old former student killed himself but what investigators say they discovered next were the workings of a sinister and deadly plan to commit mass murder, four home made bops in a backpack, firearms and hundred of rounds of ammunition. >> it could have been a very bad day for everybody here. all things considered, i think that we were very blessed here at university of florida. >> reporter: investigators say they don't know what made him
turn his gun on himself instead. police believe he pulled the fire alarm himself to lure unsuspecting students into the open of the dorm hallway pointed the gurp n at a roommate but th student barricaded himself in the bathroom and called 911. the suspect killed himself. the studented in the dorm were left shaken. started out as a fire alarm and nobody said that somebody else was going on with the bomb in the shooting. so we were left in the zblashda >> i never thought this would happen. it's horrible someone had to die. >> reporter: investigators found writings laying out a time line, a plan designed to, quote, give them hell. we don't know who he planned to target but investigators say he was acting as a lone wolf. >> he did not have a lot of friends. one of the people that fliesed up under the radar and has anger
issues. one of those throughout and made up his mind and set a time line and put a plan into place. >> ed joining us from orlando. i have a couple of questions for you. first of all, do we know if he was specifically targeting anyone? secondly, what was this guy doing on campus? >> reporter: well, so far authorities are saying that no one specific person was targeted. there was that reference in there to giving them hell but authorities say they do not know who "they" were talking about. authorities have scheduled a press conference for later this afternoon. perhaps if they have more details they'll shed light on that. the student has been registered on campus for the last couple of years through the end of the fall semester that ended in december but as far as we know, university officials say they was not registered at school for the spring semester and university officials were in the process of trying to get him out of the dorm where he was still living. that dorm behe is back open and students we've seen coming and going throughout the day.
>> do we understand you said he wasn't registered. he seems old to be in a campus dorm. >> reporter: yeah. 30-year-old student, he was registered in the college of business administration, the classes he had been taking from 2010 through the end of 2012. he went technically registered for the spring semester. it's unclear if he was planning to come back or finished. but the university officials did say that they were in the process of trying to get him removed since he wasn't registered out of the dorm. officials here have described hip as a loner and someone displaying anti-social behavior. all of that played together isn't clear at this point, but imagine that that might have played some sort of role in why they are trying to remove student from the dormitory. >> a lot of unanswered questions. thank you very much. the calendar says spring just a day away. we can hardly wait.
take a look at the video, you might beg to differ here. we're watching north dakota, just yesterday. accidents lit, the interstate. the scene similar in minnesota as well. blowing snow, decreasing visibility, ice coating the roads. didn't stop there. overnight the roads in new york turned into a slippery mess. and it's not over yet. alison kosik is in concord, new hampshire. nice to see you out there. outdoors, change of pace there. a foot and a half of snow, really? >> reporter: i know. you know it certainly doesn't feel like today is the last day of winter. people i've talked with said, spring? spring is tomorrow? it doesn't look that way. if snow had to fall it doesn't hurt it's so pretty. look how picturesque. it's like a postcard. the snow actually, the snow that's falling is good snow, good snow for building snowmen, good for skiing. ski resorts are enjoying it. a lot of people are sick of this. it's the end of march, spring is
tomorrow and they want to put the snow behind them. it doesn't look like that's happening today. >> what about last year. >> kind of a different story, yeah, different picture? >> reporter: yeah. you know, today's march 19th. march 19th last year, would you believe it was 81 degrees. 81 degrees. look at what it is today. it has been a rough winter here for nose new hampshire. an average of 72 inches of snow have fallen for the one ter season compared to an average of 55 inches that fell last year. it really has been a rough winter season because a lot of the storms, they've been strong storms, and they've kind of hit one after the other just in march. so, yeah, they are hoping for spring. hoping for some sort of heat wave at some point. >> we're showing viewers a split screen from last year, you see kids with popsicles and kids hanging out like they're on the beach. amazing when you think of the comparison from a year ago.
try to stay warm, all right? >> reporter: i will. i will. >> okay. all right. thanks. what we're working on for the hour, ten years ago today the u.s. invaded iraq. you'll remember that. almost 4500 americans lost their lives in the second iraq war. many more still nursing their wounds. >> my driver, he ran over an ied and i lost one of my eyes and the left side of my skull was fractured. >> dr. sanjay gupta's taking a look at one man's struggle to recover.

several others have been convicted for their role if that murder. it is a bloody day across iraq as the nation marks the tenth anniversary of the u.s.-led invasion that toppled saddam hussein. at least 53 people died in a series of car and roadside bombings and shootings. anniversary of the start of the iraq war is almost always accompanied by a spike in deadly violence. learns will be calculating the cost of the iraq war for generations. from the moment combat operations began exactly ten years ago today, almost 4500 americans lost their lives. the human toll for iraqis, much, much higher. more than 134,000 died, many of them civilians. and the burden on u.s. taxpayers as well. the war cost a lot.
a whopping $800 billion. about 32,000 u.s. troops were wounded in the iraq war. an army combat engineer was one of them, suffered a severe head injury from the roadside blast. his path to recovery has been slow and difficult. a rehabilitation program in atlanta has helped him try to regain independence and connect again with his family. dr. san gr san jay gupta has the story. >> i had a feeling i would be injured in iraq the second time. >> reporter: sergeant deangelo vaun was injured in iraq in 2005. >> we were riding through a mission to blow up ieds. my driver, he ran over an ied and i lost one of my eyes and the left side of my skull was fractured and they had to take
out a piece of my brain because it got infected. >> reporter: and this is the part they had to take out from -- because of the injury and take pressure off of your brain? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: unlike the physical wounds of war, traumatic brain injuries, invisible to the eye and it's not uncommand for vets to suffer in silence. what was recovery like? you have operations, seven months in the hospital? >> lots of pain, torture it seemed like, light would cause knee have migraines. i was having seizures. >> reporter: that whole chapter's very hard on you. >> yeah. >> reporter: and on your wife. >> caused me and my first wife to get a divorce. luckily i have tremendous parents. >> reporter: now deangelo's happily remarried. >> wash the pan out. >> reporter: communication was a major challenge for him and his wife. and his five girls. >> i can tell something would be
know how to express es but heun himself. >> i just didn't feel like i could offer anything to society. >> strong through the core. >> reporter: last year, deangelo found the share clinic, a comprehensive rehab program in atlanta. focusing on helping vets recovery from traumatic brain injuries. >> people will have headaches, concentration with attention, insight, judgment, planning and difficulty with emotion control. >> reporter: how do you describe this program? >> the one stop shop for everything. treating all of the different syst symptoms in a key he'sive way. >> reporter: regaining independence a key living in the share-provided housing. >> that's independence right there. >> reporter: he also surprised himself by discovering a new hobby. what does this do for you physically and plentslil l ment? >> it gives you patience.
>> reporter: what are you looking for? >> i'm looking how we're paying attention to the left side in particular. >> reporter: vaughn completed the inpatient program, it took him 81 days. now he's living at home with his family. he meets with his life coach weekly. >> instead of 5:00 to 6:00, but the correct time. appointments a daily routine, things they want to accomplish, volunteer time, how they're structuring time. >> i'm going rock climbing in utah. >> reporter: do you have goals now for the future? >> to become a personal trainer. to be the best father that i can be to my five children. and to be the best husband i can be to my wife. >> reporter: how would you rate your quality of life? >> scale out of 1 to 10, 10. >> reporter: fantastic. would you go back to iraq? >> if my country needed me i would go back.
>> dr. sanjay gupta joins us now. an amazing story of success there. how often does think happen? are there a lot of people dealing with these struggles? >> there are. you know you think about war's path and amputations were the signature injuries of wars in vietnam and korea. this time head injuries, about one in five returning veterans, a lot returning now have some form of head injury. so 20%. another 18% also have significant posttraumatic stress disor or depression. the thing that's interesting about the program, as doctors we know how to take care of the acute problems. but even long term, rehab's important but it doesn't work unless there's housing associated with it unless people are getting counseling with regard to get finances back in order. in this case, legal counseling. they interplay with each other and that's what the program is all about. >> why is it so many cases are undiagnosed? people afraid to come forward or
signs are hidden. >> the stigma's still there. there's no question. as much as we have talked about those over last 12 year, it's still there. there's no particular brain scan or blood test that can it'll you for sure there's an impact on the brain from the explosions. it's not often one explosion. we know when one explosion occurs there an injury. multiple explosions small enough someone doesn't get knock out or feel anything, they can be additive over time, that makes it hard to diagnose. >> you were in iraq. you saw a lot of first firsthand up close. you were even in a situation you were able to save lives as well. >> yeah. it's remarkable anniversary because there were people out there when you think about in the middle of these dusty desert tents who have these significant wounds, as a neurosurgeon i was able to help out because i was the only neurosurgeon there. that has been going on for 10, 12 years now. the brain injuries, we're seeing the long-term impact.
>> never forget it, literally you were saving lives. >> i dream about it still sometimes being out there. >> really? >> some of the people did well. and as you saw with deangelo, he's going to have a real go at things here. >> sanjay, thank you. excellent work. i'm sure there are many iraqis thanking you as well. >> thank you. appreciate that. >> tune into sanjay gupta m.d. saturday 4:30 p.m. eastern, sunday 7:30 in the morning here on cnn. and will the white house end the cherished easter egg roll because of a possible government shutdown? we'll have to get to the bottom of that story next.

that will be here for you now -- and down the road. i have a lifetime of experience. so i know how important that is. the calendar says march 19th but it's st. patrick's day in washington. president obama meeting with the irish prime minister earlier today. and this hour, they're attending a house speaker john boehner's annual friend of ireland's luncheon. tonight the president leaves on his first visit to israel since taking off. the trip includes stops in the west bank town of ramallah and the country of jordan. budget battles heating up today on capitol hill. both house and senate likely to vote on the budget proposal. but once again, not surprising, the parties split over taxes, spending cuts, and the deficit. house republicans and democrats from the house are now trying to make their case.
>> the republican budget, the same baby with a new dip somewhere there is diaper will have be changed once again. reality is, this budget is very little difference between this budget and the ryan republican budgets of the past. >> you want more tax and spend or you want a future that balances. the question is always why, one or the other. the democrats' tax and spend, you get the same economy that you've had right now. you're going to lose more of your paycheck which every person working today has. >> all right. so another thing happening at the white house here. the easter egg roll might be spared from this government gridlock. all this started when ticket holders to the annual event were told it could be cancelled if lawmakers cannot agree on a plan to prevent the government from shutting down. this year's easter egg roll set
for april 1st. looks like it's going forward as planned. we know it's a fun event. a lot of people look forward to taking their kids, getting tickets. it would be a sad loss especially d.c. kids, folks in the area. how did this happen? >> reporter: i don't know if people would have worried that the easter egg roll, which is a fun day of games and of course the easter egg roll is part of it for the kids i done flow that people would have worried it was going to be canceled except that the white house earlier this month had said it was going to cancel tours of the white house through the end of september to save money amid the forced spending cuts that kicked in. what happened was, a notice went out to members of congress, some of whom go to the easter regu e roll because of funding un certaintie certainties, you know, it's possible that this event is
subject to cancellation and said if it's canceled it's not going to be reschedule. this sort of maybe canceled thing wasn't related to the forced spending cuts it was related to whether there might be a partial government shutdown which could occur if congress were to fail to extend funding authorization into the end of march here. but have no fear, it appears easter's still sacred. listen to what jay carney said today at the briefing. >> i want to be clear, because it looks like there's progress being made and nobody expects a government shutdown, we have every expectation that the easter egg roll will proceed as planned. i hope that settles the matter. >> reporter: so that is the good news. i will tell you, following tours being canceled, suzanne, you know that republicans were pretty upset about that because they felt like the white house is just trying to gin up negative reaction to these
forced spending cuts. they haven't really jumped on the possibility that the easter egg roll is going to be canceled. so republicans, as well, who some of whom will be at this event, seem to be confident that it's going to go forward as well. >> okay. both sides using it, i think. brianna, thank you. right now a funeral being held for a 6-month-old who was shot and killed on the south side of chicago. we'll talk to the family's past bar what is being done to put an end to the violence there.

in washington today, what is at stake is an $11 billion merger. talking about american airlines wants to join forces with us airways. but the government's going to have to approve of all of this. so the senate judiciary committee's questioning the heads of both companies. the committee's talking to that the merger could cause ning consumers more to fly. at the hearings and give us a sense of what the ceos are explaining this. they're in the hot seat. >> they are in the hot seat. you know they're saying this would be a good thing if this merger does happen if us airways is allowed to merge with american airlines it will create the largest u.s. airline. consumer advocates are calling potential merger a bad case of deja vu. 's why. in recent years we've seen mergers, we've seen six to be exact, in 2005 us airways and american west, they merged.
several more in between. and the last one happened in 2011 when southwest merged with air tran. if american and us airways merge, and they do get that green light, consumers will only have three major airlines to pick from. so what does that mean for you the next time you book your flight, your frequent flyer miles, will it mean a flight delay or lost luggage as companies work to integrate. that's exactly what the senate judiciary subcommittee asked ceos of the two airlines today. here was the arirline's respons. >> employees will receive improved benefits, job security, shareholders will benefit from the improved financial stability of the combined company. because of these benefits the combination attracted unprecedented support from the employees and labor unions of both companies, financial markets and the communities we serve. >> already.
consumer advocates say the merger will mean fare increases though history does not show that mergers lead to fare hikes. they also say less competition would mean decline in customer satisfaction, including comfort, on-time flight, baggage handling. as the loyalty programs, airlines won't worry about customer loyalty. the currency value of the miles, that could be lowered, you could see expiration date on accumulated miles and redemption fees. back to you. >> start off with the concerns of the consumer groups. here. talking higher prices and losing frequent flyer miles potentially? >> you know what? it depends on who you speak with. if you talk to many consumer advocates they seem to believe -- and they're dug in -- if this merger is allowed to go through it very well could mean higher prices because they say it's just the way it works.
there's less competition, then these airlines don't feel the pressure to lower prices. again we go back to say that history doesn't necessarily suggest that that has to happen. when it comes to the frequent flyer miles, when we see these two companies merge, now you have a lot of loyal flyers competing for these seats. so it just makes things more difficult for people if you are part of any of those programs to get those free seats. but if you talk to the airlines, they say the upside to all of this, suzanne, they will be able to travel if a lot more other areas and that would simply mean, if you are a part of the frequent flyer miles, you have more choices far as where you can go. dow jones had an impressive run, right? record highs the past couple of weeks. but fears over a crisis in europe sent stocks lower in the past couple of days. we're asking the question, how much risk should you be taking when it comes to stocks right

why? what about the person who did it. take a listen. >> i was walking, wondering what the person's thinking about right now who did th. what he's thinking. he should turn himself in. >> reporter: investigators are talking to jonylah's father, jonathan, and they say he is cooperating but indicate he could be more cooperative. at this point, they are still searching for the killer. suzanne? >> george, police say they do have some surveillance video that could actually help them find the shooter. do they think that's going to be a strong tool to try to track down who did this? >> reporter: you know, at this point, that is a very important lead. in that surveillance video, taken there at the scene, it shows a getaway van and that's what investigators are using. as their primary lead to get closer to an arrest.
we hear from the police superintendent that he's confident an arrest will be made, suzanne, in this case and that's what people here, that's what they are demanding. but at this point no one is in custody. >> and, george, finely, you bring up such a good point, you've covered many murders before, we've seen this in chicago before, but you see that little girl's face, does that seem to make a difference, an impression on the community in terms of the outrage or the concern that you have this little girl who lost her life? >> reporter: let's look again. you know, yeah, many ways it feels like, it seems like, this is a rallying cry on the south side of chicago. people are talking about this. they're talking about finding ways to make a difference, to make change, just to make people think twice about the gun violence here. so you know, there is a hopefulness inside this funeral, suzanne. but this is a very sad occasion, to say the least. >> a lot of work to be done

victim about this, after a judge sentenced two high school football players sunday. they were found guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl last august. now, of course, the story went viral and pictures and texts about the assault were shared online. the mother of the victim says the family hopes to put this ordeal behind them. >> i feel i have an opportunity to bring an awareness to others, possibly change the mentality of a youth or help a parent to have more of an awareness to where their children are and what they are doing. the adults need to take responsibility and guide these children. i ask every person listening what if this was your daughter, your sister, or your friend? we need to stress ots importance of helping those in need and stand up for what is right. we all have that option to choose. this is the start of a new beginning for my daughter. >> the lawyer for one of the convicted teens spoke to piers morgan last night. >> well, his apology was for the pain that he caused. he was there, there's no question about it.
the question that i think mr. richmond, his dad, is concerned with is whether or not he committed a rape on the evidence that he heard. that's the father. he's going to feel that way. >> will you be appealing that? >> there will be an appeal. there's a legal agenda we'll follow and a personal agenda. the thing that's important is we transcend this. rape is a terrible, terrible, terrible thing. >> his case? in steubenville is not over. it's time for a grand jury to look into this case. a defense psychologist says jodi arias can't remember killing her ex-boyfriend because she developed ptsd and amnesia as a result of all of the stress she was under. arias admits she killed travis alexander but says it was in self-defense. this is something a lot of people have been following every step of the way. if you've got the prosecutor now really going after this witness. richard samuels. now back on the stand, yes?
>> reporter: yeah. and the grilling continues. juan martinez is not letting up at all, because this is an important witness, suzanne, for the defense. outside of jodi arias herself who was on the stand for 18 days, this is the second-most important witness because this is the person that is going to supposedly explain to the jurors why jodi arias who has a photographic memory jurors why jodi arias who has a photographic memory about everything that happened to her in her life can't remember stabbing travis alexander 29 times. this is why juan martinez is going after him so hard and will continue to for the rest of most of day and i'm assuming because he has been meticulously going after not only this doctor's past, about you how he handled arias in his interviews with her. >> and what's so fascinating is the jurors themselves have been able to ask questions. do we expect the doctor also will face questions from the
jury? >> reporter: oh, yeah, because they have a little wire basket that sits on the jury table and they've been writing questions and dropping them in the bin. so once dr. samuels is done answering questions from prosecutor martinez, it will be up to the jury. so he'll have a long day ahead of him. there are a lot of questions for him. he's a very pivotal witness and i'm sure jurors want to be comfortable with what he's trying to tell them in terms of the science behind basically the premonition that jodi arias did forget because she was under so much stress, which will is documented in cases like this, but it is taken with a grain of salt in this one because they are remember nothing conveniently about the sactual stabbing. >> intriguing. the fbi now says it know who was behind one of the largest art thefts in the country.
