Also, Anderson asks J.R. about his recovery process after being wounded in Iraq at age 19 in 2003. J.R. was trapped inside a Humvee that ran over a landmine in Karbala -- resulting in burns over 40% of his body. Martinez shares his inspiring story.
The latest on the Syracuse University child sexual-abuse scandal. Anderson speaks with 23-year-old Zach Tomaselli, the latest man to come forward and the third to accuse Syracuse Associate head coach Bernie Fine of sexual abuse.
