Too much junk in the trunk.

The Army is thinning the ranks of civilian helicopter instructors at Fort Rucker Alabama by imposing a 250-pound weight limit.

A move to block the plan was dismissed by a judge who refused to intervene in the weighty issue.

No, this isn’t a late April Fools joke.

The Soviet Union left Afghanistan in 1989 after a bloody 10-year occupation that cost it 15,000 lives.

Now the Russian Federation wants a military presence in the war-torn country after the United States pulls out in 2014.

The self-described Godfather of Camp Pendleton just went down.

G-men arrested Natividad Cervantes after he allegedly accepted a $10,000 bribe.

Cervantes oversaw construction contracts at Camp Pendleton. Prosecutors say he extorted businesses seeking work at the Southern California Marine base dating back to 2008.

Investigators claim Cervantes referred to himself as the “Godfather of Camp Pendleton.”
