In "what's trending", Steve tells is about 6 Mississippi teenagers who stepped up to honor a 70-year-old Navy Veteran when he died. Vietnam War veteran Jerry Wayne Pino had made arrangements to be buried at the Biloxi National Cemetery prior to his December death, but he had no surviving family to take part in the burial services. The funeral director's son was out of town, but he stepped in and texted his friends "Let's do this!".  So, 6 boys from the high school football team showed up to be pallbearers at the services. Because Pino had no family, the honor guards presented the US flag – which was draped over Mr Pino's casket – to the funeral home director, who passed it along to the teens. 

Howard shared this story. Queen Elizabeth was once nearly shot by her own guard. The Times of London says the 90-year-old queen sometimes can't sleep so she goes for a stroll. Once, the newspaper doesn't say when, it happened at 3 a.m. and a guard saw a figure in the dark. When she identified herself, he said, "Bloody hell, Your Majesty, I nearly shot you." To which she replied, "That's quite all right. Next time I'll ring through beforehand so you don't have to shoot me."

Grace shared a man navigating an icy parking lot with a full beer. He slips, he throws his beer and lands on the ground. A second later, he manages to catch the beer as well while on his back. It was an epic save.
