On the Radar: Veterans Day, ruined cruise, Latin Grammys

Veterans of all U.S. wars are honored Thursday.

Veterans Day - America honors its veterans Thursday. Vice President Joe Biden and Defense Secretary Robert Gates will take part in a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery at 11 a.m. ET.

Be sure to visit's Veterans in Focus section for stories, images, video and interactive graphics on:

- a World War II vet's memories of D-Day and how he's training a new generation of warriors;
- how military veterans, the Pentagon and mental health professionals are coming to grips with post-traumatic stress disorder;
- how special courts seek to keep veterans out of prison;
- what might happen next with "don't ask, don't tell"; and
- why a Medal of Honor recipient from the Afghanistan conflict feels angry about the award.

Crippled cruise ship due to return - Thousands of passengers on a crippled cruise ship being towed to San Diego, California, are expected to disembark Thursday from a three-day ordeal that left them without air conditioning or hot showers. Or a decent meal: Their diet became Spam and Pop Tarts rather than steak and chocolate mousse after an engine room fire Monday knocked out the ship's power.

Clinton meeting with Netanyahu - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is set to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday in New York, a day after she said the United States is "deeply disappointed" with Israel's decision to build new housing units in sensitive areas of East Jerusalem.

Latin Grammys - After Wednesday night's Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, the stars will be out again Thursday night in Los Angeles, California. The Latin Grammys celebrate the best music of Latin origin or performed by Latin American artists in 41 categories spanning pop, rap/hip-hop, rock, tropical, jazz and classical. Placido Domingo will receive the Person of the Year award. CNN en Español's Ana Maria Montero will report live from the green carpet starting at 4 p.m. ET

    Dr bad, i think you need to see a therapist or just take your meds because your not making any sense to me & some of the things you do mention its like you are talking back to yourself using up the comments section! & don't lie! you do have a problem with women, especially AMERICAN women! why Dr bad? is it because they seem to have it better than you or is it because they are smarter than you or because american women just got it like that & you just cannot stand to see american women get what they want!
