Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators have some good news and bad news tonight. 

First the good news;

Viktor Arvidsson and P.K Subban returned to the line-up as Nashville hosted the Dallas Stars.  

The bad news;

The Predators lost 2-0.

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Jeremy Rains remembers his father’s love of flying. He remembers he was tall, so tall he was almost too tall to become a helicopter pilot for the U.S. Army.

“He was a big guy, everybody called him a gentle giant,” Rains said. “He was 6-4 and if you look at pictures he is always the tallest guy. I just remember him as a larger than life personality.”

U.S. Army Capt. Terry L. Rains died December 12th, 1985, in the crash of Arrow Air Flight 1285 that also killed 247 of his fellow Soldiers and eight crewmembers.
