The Brookshire's Heroes Flight wrapped up their third and final day in Washington D.C. with a trip to the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. Veterans visited awe-inspiring memorials in Washington DC, but the real impacting moment was visiting an airplane museum with a World War II veteran. These men have stories upon stories involving these planes. All you have to do is listen. Take Elmer Car. His job was to photograph islands from a P 38 with a 50-pound camera.
Heroes Flight, sponsored by Brookshire's and Super 1 Foods, honors veterans for their service and provides them a chance to visit places such as the World War II Memorial, the Capitol and the Arlington National Cemetery. First, on Monday, they visited the Air Force Memorial. How do you make it through 99 years of life, including service in the Air Force, without ever getting on a plane? WWII Veteran Olan Wise, who took his first flight today, says it is simple: just stay on the ground.
It's very clear in some sections of Van Zandt County, where a tornado not only touched down, but stayed on the ground for miles. One such spot was Highway 19, just south of Canton. Several homes there are destroyed, including Sally Knox's. Knox lives alone, and cares for close to 50 animals. She says she never saw the storm coming. "The wind just started, and I saw the roof blow off my house," Knox said. "I had another house in the back, that got wiped out immediately. That was gone.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
