In honor of Women's History Month, a group of individuals from the sports world discuss the role of women in sports, from auto racing pro Danica Patrick, to Lauren Silberman who became the first woman ever to try out for the NFL.

Then, a serious discussion on the rising epidemic of post-traumatic stress disorder among our returning veterans as one mom shares her emotional story about her son who suffered from the disorder.

Businesswoman and philanthropist Shari Arison talks about the universal effort to give back on what is known as Good Deeds Day.
