  • Hope you had a happy Mother`s Day weekend.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. And this is CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • First up this Monday, May 11th: Force protection Bravo.

  • It`s a threat level at U.S. military bases

  • indicating an increase in predictable threat of terrorism.

  • As you see, it`s the third tier out of five.

  • The reason we`re telling you about it is because

  • it was increased to Bravo at U.S. military bases last Friday.

  • This applies to 3,200 military sites, including recruiting stations,

  • National Guard facilities, and ROTC detachments.

  • It means more security at bases,

  • though a military spokesman didn`t say exactly what that would be.

  • The military says the level wasn`t raised because of a specific threat,

  • but because it`s concerned about several recent incidents,

  • including an attempted terrorist at an event in Texas

  • we told you about last week.

  • Give me a clap.

  • It`s hard to believe that a year ago, most people had not heard of ISIS.

  • And now, hardly a week goes by without

  • the FBI making a major arrest of ISIS so-called "travelers".

  • These are people who are trying to go overseas to join the fight,

  • following the lure of the ISIS propaganda machine on the Internet.

  • The interest in ISIS is not waning at all. If anything, it`s still growing.

  • We`ve got about 26 cases against Westerners and Americans

  • trying to help ISIS since the beginning of this year.

  • Six Minnesota men now charged.

  • A 20-year-old woman reportedly runs away to join the terrorists.

  • And what I`m told by U.S. law enforcement

  • is that they`re opening more cases than they`re closing,

  • which is actually a very scary prospect.

  • The result of having Westerners and Americans go over to Syria

  • and Iraq to join with ISIS is now you have people in place,

  • and they have friends back

  • that they have influence over and they can reach back

  • to their homelands to try to get them to come.

  • And that`s exactly what we saw in the recent case in Minnesota.

  • And what this case represents is a sea change for U.S. law enforcement

  • for these types of cases because they had the help of cooperators,

  • someone who was inside. So, they were able to tell a lot more about

  • how ISIS recruitment is organized.

  • And I think what this means is that they`re going to be able to

  • use this to try to figure out where else this might exist,

  • because they do believe that this represents the new normal,

  • the future for ISIS recruitment cases.

  • The results are in from last week`s elections in the United Kingdom.

  • And despite polls that show the country`s major parties were neck and neck,

  • the actual vote gave a major victory to Britain`s Conservative Party,

  • the party of Prime Minister David Cameron.

  • It`s been compared to America`s Republican Party.

  • The conservatives got an overall majority in Britain`s parliament,

  • and that could make it easier for Prime Minister Cameron

  • to pass the legislation he supports.

  • The future of Britain`s membership in the European Union,

  • and political tension with Scotland are two challenges

  • ahead for the British parliament.

  • Yesterday afternoon, Super Typhoon Noul roared over the northern Philippines.

  • Its sustained wind speeds were 160 miles per hour,

  • with gusts of almost 200 miles per hour.

  • The northern Philippines isn`t densely populated.

  • But the storm did clip a town of 30,000 people,

  • forcing hundreds of evacuations and threatening landslides

  • and flooding in the mountainous area.

  • With 20 inches of rain Noul was expected to bring

  • could actually help some farmers in the region.

  • The charity World Vision says they`ve been on a dry spell.

  • Meanwhile, the year`s first tropical storm in the Atlantic made landfall yesterday.

  • It hit South Carolina Sunday morning.

  • It started moving north afterward.

  • It was expected to bring rough waves,

  • rip currents and cause minor damage to coastal areas in the Carolinas.

  • It made landfall with wind speeds of 45 miles per hour,

  • but weakened as it moves over land.

  • Throughout the world throngs of people hail the end of the war in Europe.

  • It is five years and more since Hitler marched into Poland.

  • Years full of suffering and death and sacrifice.

  • Now the war against Germany is won.

  • President Truman announced the official surrender.

  • This is a solemn but glorious hour.

  • General Eisenhower informs me that the forces of Germany

  • have surrendered to the United Nations.

  • The flags of freedom fly all over Europe.

  • So, the sights and sounds commemorating VE Day,

  • Victory in Europe Day,

  • when Nazi Germany surrendered to the Allies 70 years ago.

  • Events over the weekend had an eye toward World War II history.

  • In the Russian capital of Moscow,

  • a massive parade included 16,000 soldiers, 150 aircrafts,

  • hundreds of armored tanks and cars.

  • VE Day is a major holiday in Russia.

  • Leaders from China, India and Venezuela were there,

  • though officials from some Western countries boycotted the celebrations

  • in protests of Russia`s alleged involvement in the conflict in Ukraine.

  • In the United Kingdom, a military parade and a royal "thank you".

  • Queen Elizabeth II joined about 1,000 World War II veterans and their families,

  • as did Prime Minister David Cameron,

  • British cadets recited prayers that had been made

  • at Westminster Abbey on VE Day itself.

  • These were just a couple of the events

  • that took place worldwide in remembrance of the day

  • when the war in Europe ended for veterans

  • that brought memories of tragedy, alongside those of triumphs.

  • A hundred and forty thousand Americans died.

  • That`s why we`re here today to celebrate the end of that war,

  • but also to commemorate that loss.

  • The bloodiest place you could possibly be in Europe

  • was Omaha Beach on June the 6th, 1944.

  • What were your chances of surviving?

  • In Company A, out of 118 men, 112 killed.

  • By lunch time on D- Day, maybe 10, 12 guys could actually stand and fight.

  • Veteran Nick Zuras shared memories from D-Day.

  • He commanded a seven-man crew on U.S. Navy rocket boat.

  • It`s not easy to talk about.

  • Zuras and his men came before the first wave of troops

  • who stormed Omaha Beach, the deadliest stretch of the French coastline.

  • Under fire, the rocket boat shelled the beach,

  • to try to soften up German defenses, ahead of the landing troops.

  • there was nothing we could do.

  • I interviewed veterans who landed on the first wave on Omaha Beach,

  • they said that when you fired your rockets,

  • they were in their landing craft and they cheered as those rockets

  • came overhead because it gave them hope.

  • They`re like, oh my God, maybe the defenses could be destroyed.

  • I wonder today, 70 years later, there was a poll we saw

  • that most young people in Europe and the U.S.

  • don`t even know what VE Day is. Do you think that people remember?

  • I think that`s a tragic fact if it`s true. I like to think the opposite.

  • I think the difference is that during your time, sir, it was an all or nothing fight.

  • It was really all or nothing. Over 14 million Americans in uniform.

  • You fought in Europe until you were killed or wounded.

  • You know, it strikes that in your time,

  • this was a national fight here in U.S. and Europe as well.

  • Everybody contributed. Today, you know,

  • the war is in Afghanistan,

  • Iraq or fought on the backs of a very small portion of the population.

  • I wonder if people today can identify with that

  • same sense of a national, or frankly,

  • an international mission. What do you think?

  • I don`t think so, I`ll be honest. World War II, everybody,

  • pulled together. It was a case of national survival. World War II,

  • I believe, was won by the housewives at home,

  • as much as it was by gentlemen like yourself, sir.

  • Everybody gave everything they possibly could to

  • what was a fight for national existence.

  • Welcome to the roll call.

  • All three of these schools made a request

  • on Friday`s transcript at CNNStudentNews.com.

  • First is First Assembly Christian School. It`s in Ashland, Alabama,

  • and the home of the Lions.

  • Next, we`re traveling to South Dakota, to say hello the Tanagers.

  • Vermillion Middle School is in Vermillion.

  • And wrapping things up in the Hawkeye State,

  • it`s great to be part of your day at Youth Shelter Care of North Central Iowa.

  • It`s in Forth Dodge, Iowa.

  • NASA says it`s developed a new kind of car. It looks like golf cart.

  • It`s electric like a golf cart. But its four wheels are independent,

  • and they can turn 180 degrees, so it can drive sideways.

  • It can drift without scorching tires, and it`s a lot easier to parallel park.

  • The NASA says it built this to advance driving technology in space and on Earth.

  • New information on what it costs to build this,

  • but it`s probably not affordable for Earthlings yet.

  • It`s called a modular robotic vehicle.

  • But maybe they`ll just simplify that to NASA-n.

  • It probably won`t raise a NASA car or set any NASA-

  • stronomical speed records,

  • but if you were at home and space with the space

  • for a space-saving space car, you simply won`t find a more NASA-looking option.

  • I`m Carl Azuz for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

Hope you had a happy Mother`s Day weekend.
