Man, I remember wearing a bracelet with a soldier's name on it. He was MIA. When the war ended we sent them back so they could be sent to the families.

Today is Tuesday, Jan. 28, the 28th day of 2014. There are 337 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On Jan. 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff from Cape Canaveral, killing all seven crew members, including schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe.

Ten years ago: British Prime Minister Tony Blair won a legal victory when a judge said the BBC was wrong to report the government had "sexed up" intelligence to justify war in Iraq. Former U.S. Navy commander Lloyd "Pete" Bucher, who'd helped his USS Pueblo crew survive brutal captivity in North Korea, then faced criticism back home, died in Poway, Calif., at age 76.

Five years ago: In a swift victory for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House approved, 244-188, a huge $819 billion stimulus bill with Republicans unanimous in opposition despite Obama's pleas for bipartisan support.

One year ago: Side by side, leading Democratic and Republican senators pledged to propel far-reaching immigration legislation through the Senate by summer, providing a possible path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people in the U.S. illegally. (Although the Senate did pass such a measure, it has encountered opposition from House Republicans who insist on a more limited approach.) Backed by French helicopters and paratroopers, Malian soldiers entered the fabled city of Timbuktu after al-Qaida-linked militants who'd ruled the outpost by fear for nearly 10 months fled into the desert.

One year ago: Jordan offered a precedent-setting prisoner swap to the Islamic State group in a desperate attempt to save a Jordanian air force pilot the militants threatened to kill along with a Japanese hostage. Jordan asked for proof that the pilot was still alive. The pilot's father met with Jordan's king who he said assured him that "everything will be fine." President Barack Obama phoned Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to congratulate him on his party's election victory and told him the U.S. would work closely with Greece to help it pursue long-term prosperity.

Today's Highlight in History:

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush, in his last State of the Union address, urged passage of an economic stimulus package and asked Americans to remain patient with the long, grinding war in Iraq. In a daring ambush, Iraqi insurgents blasted a U.S. patrol with a roadside bomb and showered survivors with gunfire from a mosque in Mosul; five American soldiers were killed in the explosion. Massachusetts Sen. Edward M. Kennedy led two generations of his family in endorsing fellow Democrat Barack Obama for the White House.

One year ago: A federal judge in New York issued an emergency order temporarily barring the U.S. from deporting people from nations subject to President Donald Trump's travel ban. Historian Timothy B. Tyson, the author of a book on the 1955 Emmett Till lynching case, revealed that Carolyn Bryant Donham, the woman at the center of the trial of Till's alleged (later admitted) killers, acknowledged in 2008 that she had falsely testified that Till made physical and verbal threats toward her.
