Military Headline News, brought to you by

* The U.S. won’t seek the death penalty against Edward Snowden, the former intelligence analysis who leaked information about top-secret American surveillance programs to the press.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told the Russian government that this week.

Snowden is reportedly seeking asylum in Russia claiming he’d be tortured or sentenced to death if returned to the states.
* To reduce manpower numbers for next year, the Air Force is offering early retirements to some officers and enlisted men and women.
The service might also involuntary separate senior officers and enlisted personnel.
Those eligible for the early out program have least 15 but less than 20 years of active-duty service as of Oct. 31.
* The names of three American soldiers killed in a suicide attack on July 23 in Afghanistan have been released.
Killed while serving their country were: 25-year-old 1st Lt. Jonam Russell of Ariz.; and 24-year-olds Sgt. Stefan M. Smith of Ga., and Spc. Rob L. Nichols of Colo.
