Toyota’s Nightmare Year Selected As #1

Automotive NewsDetroit, MI – The trouble at Toyota was chosen as the top news story of 2010 in the annual Automotive News staff poll.  Here’s a recap of the staff’s choices for the year’s top 10 stories:

1)  How the mighty fall: Toyota’s nightmare year

Allegations that several popular Toyota models were prone to accelerate dangerously out of control led to a string of recalls — and a year of misery for the company.  Eight vehicles were temporarily pulled off the market in January, touching off a media frenzy about unintended acceleration. The result? A massive hit to the company’s sterling reputation for safety and reliability.

Written by U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Mark Burrell
Task Force Bastogne Public Affairs

BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionNangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Gul Alam, a metalworker and village elder in Sherzad District, woke up early December 26th.

He didn’t hear the rooster’s crow in his small village that morning. In fact, he doesn’t hear much any morning.

Alam, a white-bearded man approaching 65 years old, has had hearing problems for as long as he can remember.

Yet, the frail Afghan, who walks with a cane, travelled several kilometers to the Mannakhil Comprehensive Health Care Center next to the Sherzad District Center in eastern Afghanistan’s Nangarhar Province to get checked out by combat medics assigned to 1st Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, Task Force Panther, and their Afghan National Army counterparts.
