Talk about going beyond one's call of duty!
U.S. Army Maj. Glenn Battschinger is one extraordinary fellow!
The father of two boys was stationed in Afghanistan back in 2010 and was missing his kids and helping them with their Eagle Scout advancement.
To ease some of his homesickness, the Army Major decided to help some of the children whom he saw everyday.
After getting permission from his superiors, he gathered 40 of the boys around one day, and started to teach them the way of the Boy Scouts - including the program's pledge. He also got creative with the famous handkerchiefs that boy scouts wear by using material from parachute cords to replicate those knots!
Here's what Glenn Battschinger said:
Julia Roberts recently appeared on Today where Matt Lauer conducted an interview with the world famous star for a segment that aired on August 1st.
And although Julia had our ears prickling with all of the information she was sharing - we did notice the lack of talk about her half sister Nancy Motes and her unfortunate suicide that happened on February 9th.
Instead the interview, the first between these two in about 7 years, was rather light and touched upon Julia's working life and her family life, and how the star usually does her best to keep the two separate!
Those points were exemplified especially when Matt Lauer asked her this:
A man of many talents!
That pretty much describes Stephen Colbert - especially in this latest video!
The future replacement of David Letterman participated in the Ask A Grown Man video series from the online publication for teenage girls Rookie and we think Colbert provided some ah-mazing answers!
And the knowledge he brought to the table wasn't only restricted to teenage girls - everyone can benefit from this man's advice.
It's obvious that his kids are SUPER lucky because this comedy man is one fantastic father!

Being a mother of two really takes a lot of patience and a lot of time.
So, it's nice to see that Kourtney Kardashian is taking a moment for herself and getting her run on!
The eldest Kardashian took to her Instagram to post a shot of her using the treadmill in a pair of bright purple and pink running shoes.
She captioned the pic:
We could listen to this all day!
Tori Amos has released a brand new music video for the song Promise, but it was her daughter Tash's musical chops that have our heads swimming!
The 13-year-old, whose full name is Natashya Lórien Hawley, participates in this hauntingly beautiful song off Tori's album Unrepentant Geraldines, and we're mighty impressed with the teenager indeed!
Tori has taught her VERY well! This kid is bound to be a star!
Check out the music video featuring BOTH talented ladies (above) !!!
At the time - there was SO much controversy over that pic!
And although most have moved on - Jada Pinkett-Smith is still mad that it was ever an issue in the first place!
The mother of Willow Smith recently was talking to the website Net-a-Porter when the controversial photo, which featured the 13-year-old on a bed with the 20-year-old shirtless former Hannah Montana star Moises Arias, was brought up again.
Here's what Jada said about that:
Wow, wow, wow!
Christina Aguilera completely outdid herself (and her controversial pregnancy shoot with baby #1) when she posed nude for an exclusive spread with V Magazine — try not to lose your jaw!
The 33-year-old mama has clearly embraced her bare baby bumpin’ curves in this racy shot, using only one hand and her long wavy mane to cover up her breast assets.
And while she added a layer of clothing to some of the other shots, her sheer white dress hides nothing! She even gets steamy with fiance Matthew Rutler (28) in one of the shots!
