Today's Highlight in History:

In 1945, French Marshal Henri Petain (ahn-REE' pay-TAN'), who had headed the Vichy (vee-shee) government during World War II, went on trial, charged with treason. (He was convicted and condemned to death, but the sentence was commuted.)

(He was freed after three days of diplomatic efforts.) The Pentagon released newly discovered payroll records from President George W. Bush's 1972 service in the Alabama National Guard, though the records shed no new light on the future president's activities during that summer.
