*Agent Orange has long been believed to have impacted the health of Vietnam veterans. There is a town hall meeting scheduled for later this month to address these concerns. Find out how you can take part in this event.
*A group of bigfoot enthusiasts show never before seen video that they say proves bigfoot is real! You'll see what the "Sasquatch Genome Project" in Texas is doing to dispel a legendary myth.
*The smooth sounds of jazz will fill the Sunrise studio this morning! We have a special treat in store for you with saxophonist, Mickey Smith. He'll be performing live and telling us about "Music With a Mission."
