Bradley Manning, the Army private arrested in the biggest leak of classified material in U.S. history, pleaded guilty Thursday to charges that could send him to prison for 20 years, saying he was trying to expose the American military's "bloodlust" and disregard for human life in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It's hot, it doesn't keep the sun out of your eyes, and you need two hands and a mirror to make sure it's on straight. After 10 years of complaints, the Army is all but ditching the black wool beret and allowing soldiers to go back to the old brimmed patrol cap for their everyday duties.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama moved Monday to seal an overhaul of his national security team, selecting Army Gen.

More than 50 members of the 817th Engineer Company (Sapper) based in Jamestown are in Bismarck, working 12-hour shifts to protect the city against historic water releases.
Starting Wednesday afternoon about 650 North Dakota National Guard members from across the state descended on Bismarck and Mandan, said Capt. Dan Murphy, public affairs officer with the NDNG.
Members of the North Dakota National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve and their families across North Dakota are able to thank supportive employers this Thanksgiving by nominating them for the 2011 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.
A few months ago, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a report that concluded that the proposed North Dakota flood control diversion would dump several feet of additional water on communities downstream on the Red River. The numbers were startling. The report immediately galvanized downstream landowners and community leaders, who came out fiercely against the diversion. No surprise in that reaction.

Military medical researchers say their efforts to reverse the rising number of suicides among servicemembers are based on “good ideas,” but they don't know which prevention programs work and which don't. They launched a $17 million study Wednesday to find out.
WASHINGTON (AP) — At the height of the Iraq war, the Army routinely dismissed hundreds of soldiers for having a personality disorder when they were more likely suffering from the traumatic stresses of war, discharge data suggests.
WASHINGTON — An Army investigation has found that potentially hundreds of remains at Arlington National Cemetery have been misidentified or misplaced, in a scandal marring the reputation of the nation’s pre-eminent burial ground for its honored dead since the Civil War.
Army Secretary John McHugh announced Thursday that the cemetery’s two civilian leaders would be forced to step aside, and he appointed a new chief to conduct a more thorough investigation to examine the graves and sort out the mix-up.

Missouri River reservoirs in the Dakotas continue to rise.
The Army Corps of Engineers says Lake Oahe rose 2.2 feet in April, and Lake Sakakawea went up nearly a foot.
Oahe is 7.7 feet higher than a year ago, and Sakakawea 9 feet higher.
The Missouri River basin is rebounding after prolonged drought that sent both lakes to record lows a few years ago.
Members of the North Dakota National Guard will take time to honor the service and sacrifice of children of military personnel in the Valley City, N.D., community on Thursday. “Honoring the Children of Military Members,” a half-hour presentation at each of the town’s elementary schools, will feature speakers and a color guard.
