Our Good News Story of the Day is… Wounded Warriors, Still in the Game. As we prepare to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, some NFL stars are saluting the 350 thousand veterans living here in North Texas.

Last night, former NFL stars, Roger Staubach, Daryl Johnson, Drew Pearson, Nate Newton and others were back on the football field at Jesuit High School, playing wounded warriors.
