  • Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • We`re going to have more on that armistice later on.

  • But we`re starting in Southeast Asia.

  • A powerful storm hit Vietnam today after slamming into the Philippines late last week.

  • Typhoons are the same thing as hurricanes.

  • Experts say typhoon Hayian might be one of the strongest ever.

  • It left the path of destruction as it moved across the Philippines Islands.

  • On this map, you`ll see Tacloban.

  • It was one of the spots that was hit the hardest.

  • No electricity, no food, no water, houses and buildings demolished.

  • The Philippines Red Cross estimated at least 1200 people were killed.

  • Officials warned that the number could be much higher than that.

  • Tacloban`s mayor said everyone he talked to had lost someone.

  • ANDREW STEVENS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: It`s struck with terrifying and deadly force.

  • The aftermath Tacloban city`s shattered landscape.

  • This was home to thousands.

  • It was not the wind who did it, it was the storm surge.

  • Reports of a five meter wall of water that engulfed the coastal strip and spread through the city.

  • It`s where the CNN crew was sheltering, about a kilometer from the shoreline, the surge was waist deep and powerful.

  • Al around us, you hear the sounds of windows breaking, you hear the sounds of the large objects falling, crashing to the floor.

  • And under foot, it is now just a (inaudible).

  • And if you look behind me, I don`t know if you can see, the staircase behind me is now basically a waterfall.

  • But that didn`t compare with what happened here.

  • We`re about 100 meters or so from the water here, and you can see, that damage caused.

  • These houses, these are all rough-built houses, completely flattened along the full shore.

  • In an interview with NBC News last week, President Obama said I`m sorry to millions of Americans.

  • BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: I`m sorry that they are finding themselves in the situation based on insurances they got from me.

  • We`ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them.

  • AZUZ: Most Americans get their health insurance through their employers.

  • But more than 10 million people by their own, and many of them will lose it because of the Affordable Care Act.

  • Obamacare. And that`s who the president was apologizing to.

  • It`s one of the reasons why the law is still surrounded by controversy.

  • ERIN MCPIKE, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Due out in the few days are the initial enrollment numbers,

  • Americans who`ve actually been able to sign up for Obamacare, despite all the problems with the healthcare.gov website.

  • KATHLEEN SEBELIUS, U.S. SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES: I can tell you our early enrollment numbers are going to be very low.

  • MCPIKE: And since this.

  • OBAMA: If you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan.

  • MCPIKE: Hasn`t exactly turned out to be the case,

  • on Wednesday, House Republicans will vote to ensure that Americans with health care plans they like really won`t have to switch.

  • House Speaker John Boehner taunted him on Twitter,

  • "President Obama says he`s sorry, but owes Americans more than that, he ought to keep the promise.

  • Mr. Obama has promised his team will find the solution, telling NBC News ..

  • OBAMA: But obviously, we didn`t do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law.

  • And that`s something that I regret.

  • That`s something that we`re going to do everything we can to get it fixed.

  • MCPIKE: But no fix announced yet.

  • And as of Saturday afternoon, even the White House website was still saying, "If you like your plan, you can keep it. And you don`t have to change a thing due to the health care law.

  • AZUZ: Today is patriotic "Roll Call." It`s going to take us from one side of the U.S. to the other.

  • We`ll start in the East Coast with the Independence High School Patriots from Charlotte, North Carolina.

  • In the Midwest, we have the Thomas Jefferson Patriots from Jefferson City, Missouri

  • and out west we catch up with the pioneer of patriots from Pioneer High in Woodland, California.

  • Here are five things to know as the U.S. honors its veterans.

  • First up, in the 1970s, Veterans` Day was temporarily made into a Monday holiday, like Memorial Day or Columbus Day to give government employees a three day weekend.

  • Many states and veterans groups didn`t like that, though, so it was moved back to November 11th. Why then?

  • Because it was on the 11th that the armistice that ended World War l went into effect.

  • In fact, the holiday was originally called Armistice Day, but it was later expanded to honor anyone who`s ever served in the U.S. military.

  • And that`s what separates Veterans` Day from Memorial Day, which happens in May in honor to those troops who`ve passed away.

  • The U.S. isn`t the only country that celebrates a holiday like Veterans` Day.

  • Australia, Britain, Canada and France, also honor their service men and women around this time.

  • The story of how a man remembered his son, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, inspired the song that took top honors at this year`s country music awards.

  • ANNOUNCER: I Drive Your Truck.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The CNA song of the year has a simple name, but it`s the deep emotion, the inconceivable feeling of loss behind the song "I Drive Your Truck" that helped earn it the honor.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE (singing): I drive your truck!

  • ANNOUNCER: Thank you so much, Jared (ph) for what you did to this country, man.

  • ANNOUNCER: Jared Monti, an Army sergeant 1st class who was killed in Afghanistan while trying to save a fellow soldier.

  • The song is about the absence of Jared, really, that deep longing for him felt by his father Paul.

  • PAUL MONTI, GOLD STAR FATHER, SON KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN: Very humble kid, very hard-working kid, extremely adventurous kid.

  • It was no hill too high, no tree too tall for Jared.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: In 2011, Paul Monti told the reporter with Boston Public Radio about his operation Flags for Vets.

  • His mission to place American flags on the graves of service members on Memorial Day.

  • (on camera): I think I have this right - do you still drive Jared`s truck?

  • PAUL MONTI: Yes, I do. I love driving it because it reminds me him, though I don`t need the truck to remind me of him. I think about him every (inaudible) day.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE (voice over): It just so happened that was a song writer from Nashville who was going home from work.

  • She turned on NPR radio and heard the interview, and it struck her immediately.

  • Today, we caught up with Monti in Rockwin (ph) , Massachusetts where he`s still living out his son`s message of strength and duty and -

  • yes, still driving Jared`s black Dodge Ram pickup.

  • He was pleased to hear about the award.

  • PAUL MONTI: It was very uplifting. It was a song that touched the hearts of Gold Star families throughout the country, as well as other families that have lost their child.

  • You know, it`s fitting the - we have something that honors them that they can hold on to.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE (singing): I drive your truck!

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Jared Monti was killed trying to save a fellow soldier.

  • He was later awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously.

  • Jared Monti`s truck gets bad mileage.

  • It doesn`t matter to Paul.

  • PAUL MONTI: I`m alone in the truck with him - it`s just - it`s a very special peaceful feeling.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And that peace is hard to come by.

  • PAUL MONTI: People tell you time heals all, well, in this case it doesn`t.

  • Losing a parent is one thing, that`s your past.

  • But losing a child - you`ve lost your future.

  • We don`t have those grandkids to look forward to when those - those special days of going to ballpark together, we`re going fishing.

  • All of that you envisioned, is gone.

  • AZUZ: All of us here at CNN STUDENT NEWS extend our gratitude to all veterans and all military families.

  • We`re going to wrap up today with videos of some of those families reuniting.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. We`ll see you tomorrow.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I love you guys!

  • END
