"Inside Marine One" By Ray L'Heureux

This audio is pending

  Col. Ray "Frenchy" L'Heureux always dreamed of bring a pilot. It wasn't until he was running low on college funds and saw a recruiter at his college that he joined the Marines and began the journey towards his dream from Parris Island to Bravo Company and, then, officer training school. One day at an airfield when President Reagan landed on this way to a fundraiser, Frenchy's life changed forever when encountered HMX1, the squadron that flies the President in Marine One. When he saw the white-topped Sea King and White Hawk helicopters, he was determined to become part of that elite group.

Inside Marine One is Col. L'Heureux's inspiring story of a young man who dreamed of flying, trained, studied and worked hard to become the pilot who ended up serving four US Presidents - George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

MLB:

The New York Yankees, trying to add offense at third base, acquired third baseman Chase Headley yesterday from the San Diego Padres for rookie infielder Yangervis Solarte and minor league pitcher Rafael De Paula. The move paid immediate dividends when Headley drove in the winning run in the bottom of the 14th inning of the Yankees' 2-1 victory over Texas last night. Derek Jeter hit his 535th double breaking Lou Gehrig's franchise record and the Yankees won an unlikely pitching duel after both rookie starters entered with a 5.10 ERA.

It names city and state education officials as defendants.

If the UFT motion is granted, the union will become an additional party to the case.
