* The case of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is now in the hands of the military judge who will decide his fate.
Manning’s defense team described him as a whistleblower who informed the public about important details of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Prosecutors, however, said Manning is a traitor and a publicity seeker.
Military Judge Col. Denise Lind will decide the case. No word yet on when she’ll reach a verdict.
* The nation lost a war hero when Medal of Honor recipient and retired Air Force Col. George Day died July 27.
Day spent 5½ years as a POW in Vietnam and was Sen. John McCain’s cellmate.
Day earned more than 70 medals for his service that spanned World War II, Korea and Vietnam. He was 88.
* Army Staff Sgt. Ty Carter will be awarded the Medal of Honor later this summer for his 2009 combat actions in Afghanistan.
President Obama will recognize Carter’s conspicuous bravery at a White House ceremony Aug. 26.
