    There's a good news update on a home ransacked and spray painted by a pair of teen burglars in northwest Houston. While the burglars are now in custody, community members and Marines stepped in to help the homeowner -- a 93-year-old World War II veteran.

    The Marines quickly marched into the defaced home of WWII veteran Elbert Wood, eager to help.

    "It's important that he knows we're here for him and that we're always his brothers," Major Roberto Rodriguez said.

    The presence of these local Marines is just one example of the outpouring of support for Wood since we first reported the burglary and vandalism of his home on Monday. Two teens, ages 13 and 16, were arrested for allegedly committing the crime.

    "My feelings about them are not anger so much as just wondering why they would do something like that," Wood said.

    Since then, calls came in from around the country, as former Marines and strangers offered to paint the graffiti-laden walls or replace the damaged household items. Gallery Furniture dropped off a living room set.

    Wood's daughter Mary Ellen Hopperdietzel said, "I feel that a fuss is made because he is a World War II veteran. But the fact of it is, this is devastating no matter who it happens to."

    The Wood family says it's still trying to comprehend all the support shown their father, who also just lost his wife last month. For today, it's obvious the presence of fellow Marines brought a smile to his face, as he coaxed the younger Marines into an impromptu singing of the Marine Corps hymn.

    Some contractors and builders also stopped by to assess the situation. They will return to complete the cleanup and repairs.

    Lily is a Great Dane that has been blind since a bizarre medical condition required that she have
    Both eyes removed. For the last 5 years, Madison , another Great Dane, has been her sight.
    The two are, of course, inseparable.

    If it seems like the world of high school sports is way too focused on winning at all costs (because usually that's the case), here's proof that there ARE coaches and kids out there who care more about actual sportsmanship than competition.

    Coronado, Texas high school student Mitchell Marcus loves basketball and has for his entire life, according to his mom. Because of a developmental disability, Mitchell doesn't play on his school's basketball team -- instead, he serves as Team Manager. But he doesn't mind. That's how much he adores the sport. Simply supporting the players makes Mitchell happy. Still, when Coach Peter Moralez decided to give Mitchell an opportunity to wear a jersey and play in the last game of the season, he was overjoyed.

    So was the crowd, who started chanting "Mitchell, Mitchell!" as soon as he stepped on the court. Unfortunately, despite his teammates' repeated attempts to pass him the ball, Mitchell couldn't seem to make a shot. Then he accidentally sent the ball out of bounds ... with only seconds left on the clock.

    That's when rival player Jonathon Montanez, a senior at Franklin High, did something absolutely amazing: He called out to Mitchell and passed him the ball. Mitchell turned, threw, and scored.

    If I were Mitchell's mom, I'm sure I would "cry about this for the rest of my life" too. It's just such a rare and beautiful thing to see people truly caring about someone else -- even to the point of sacrificing a "big win," like Jonathon Montanez. Coach Moralez, who says he was prepared to lose the game if it meant Mitchell's dream of playing basketball could come true, deserves a huge amount of credit, too, of course. But Jonathon Montanez is just a teenager, and while teens are typically selfish, what he did was incredibly selfless. His explanation? He says he was "raised to treat others the way he'd want to be treated."

    His parents deserve a huge amount of credit, too.
