We love life!

Why? Because life is letting Alexander Skarsgård (the sexiest vampire to ever pretend to be a human in real life) take on Prince Harry (a real prince) in a race to the South Pole!

What's even better is that ASkars has joined the AMERICAN team (even though he's super Swedish), and will be battling the British team along with actor Dominic West's Canadian/Australian team to reach the South Pole this winter to help wounded veterans.

White House Down Is Free On The 4th Of July For All U.S. Military!

white house down gotta go

Independence Day was a huge hit for Roland Emmerich. Now Sony is hoping this Independence Day will bring him another in White House Down!

But they're willing to part with a chunk of that 4th of July money to honor our nation's real heroes.

All day on the Fourth, active military and veterans get to go see Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx save the White House- for free!!!

Regal Entertainment Group, AMC Theatres, Cinemark Theatres, and Carmike Cinemas are all participating, offering a free seat to anyone presenting a valid military ID.

What better way to celebrate our country and its fighting men and women than with an action movie?

Of course, their slogan of "Monsters U is for commies" was a little much. JK!

military suicides

Ugh! So sad!

A new study published on Monday has found that a veteran commits suicide every 80 minutes!

Since the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, military related suicide attempts have increased. In 2009 alone, 1,868 veterans of those wars attempted to take their own life!

It's not just the veterans either. Researchers found approximately one service member committed suicide every 36 hours between 2005 and 2019.

Study authors Dr. Margaret C. Harrell and Nancy Berglass concluded:
