Max Armstrong shares stories of heroism and loss in this Thanksgiving episode

Max Armstrong shares that folks in northeast Ohio are thankful after an 88-year-old veteran saved a child being mauled by a pit bull. Leonard Miller used a yard Christmas decoration to beat the dog off the child. Max also shares the story of neighbors in Indiana who came together to mourn the loss of a young man in a grain accident. The farmers in the region brought their equipment and lined it up along a road in honor of the young man – Colten Lee Howard. From trucks to sprayers to combines to tractors, tens of millions of dollars of equipment were lined up.
