The Salvation Army has been a part of the lives of Robert and Georgia Henderson from the time they were children.

"I can't hardly call one city my hometown," said Robert Henderson, who with his wife took over the The Hagerstown Corps of the Salvation Army last June.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Out of 350,000 people serving in the National Guard, Spc. Erik Nowak was the best. He's hauled 35 pounds of equipment on his back over 10 miles of road and was loaded down with 70 pounds of gear on another nearly six-mile hike. The Bunker Hill, W.Va., man also had to excel in combat water survival, weapons training and complete tasks with minimal sleep. Nowak, 27, competed in a nationwide National Guard competition earlier this year and his proficiency was enough to get him selected as the 2007 U.S. Army National Guard Soldier of the Year.

Perhaps his most noteworthy feat is performing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" on his six guitar strings.
