WATCH: Woody Williams, a Marine who was awarded the nation's highest military honor for his bravery in WWII, reflects on overcoming fear while facing uncertainty.

The 96-year-old WWII hero spoke with @JanCBS about why it's so important to keep moving forward.

“I didn’t think I’d done anything special...I wasn’t thinking of anything except, ‘This is what I’ve got to do.’” Our interview from earlier this year with 96-year-old Woody Williams, who received the Medal of Honor for his bravery 75 years ago on Iwo Jima. 🇺🇸

Now this is how you get people to stay inside #RTR

Maria Mercader, our beloved CBS News colleague, died from COVID-19 on Sunday at age 54.
"It's nearly impossible to be someone EVERYONE loves, but Maria was."

Every picture of Maria you see posted, please notice how she always is smiling, exuding such warmth and hope. To her family and many many friends and my colleagues at CBS who considered her a part of their own family, I’m so sad and sorry for this devastating loss.

My professor is 74 and he isn’t confident using Zoom so he’s prerecorded the rest of our classes. Today, I watched the first one. He has a Pinocchio doll in the front row because he isn’t comfortable teaching to an empty room. I’m social distancing for this man and this man only.

Holding our guests, colleagues, partners, and loved ones close to our hearts during this trying time. May we show true hospitality to our family, friends, and neighbors while we take steps to protect each other and stay healthy. We're in this together. 💛 #IHG #LightsOfLove

Thinking of the people who work at @IHG and everyone in the hotel industry, all you do to support us and especially when we’re on the road doing jobs of our own. Hoping you and your families will be okay now ❤️🙏

Mom said that after my grandpa got hurt in a lumberyard accident and could no longer work, he started baking bread everyday. Had never heard that til today. Made me miss him so much, a gentle giant of a man. There’s something about baking, it centers you. Thinking of you PaPaw❤️

Athletics prepare people from times like this! Parents expose your kids to sports, let them go through adversity! Don’t have them run everytime it gets tough because there comes a time you. Just. Can’t. 💡

Yes!!!! A huge reason all kids should play sports is learning perseverance, resiliency... All qualities we need in good days but especially in crisis. That said i hope they can be back playing again soon 🙏

Even before #coronavirus, researchers said 4 in 10 Americans can't afford a car repair or another unexpected expense of $400. But thanks to one repair garage, some don't have to.

@JanCBS introduces us to a mechanic who's helping people stay on the road, even if they can't pay.

“I can’t change the world. But I can make it better.” Take a moment to watch the good work Adam and Toni Ely are doing in OKC with their garage Hard Luck Auto. Such an inspiring example and now more than ever. Thinking of you guys and thank you 🙏

Is it bad or good to order online now? Okay to be ordering non essential items and keep businesses going or is that a burden on the workers and system? NOT ASKING FOR A FRIEND SOS

As the numbers in NYC continue to rise, Gov Cuomo is delivering an excellent briefing right now...outlining plans of action, successful coordination with WH for more hospital beds etc, while at the same time talking directly to the people, striking the right tone of calm

It’s surreal we’re in a time when everything changes so fast yesterday seems like a year ago. But it wasn’t that long ago that these girls worked so hard for their teams and dreams. Congrats ladies and you too @PageG_32 for being named @WashPostHS All-Met. Never ever give up 💪

Another stark reminder from #scotus we are living a moment in history: “The Court postponed scheduled arguments for October 1918 in response to the Spanish flu epidemic...also shortened its argument calendars in August 1793 and August 1798 in response to yellow fever outbreaks.”

Justices will have their regular private conference on Friday but “some justices may participate remotely by telephone” and let’s just say we all know which #scotus justices better be participating remotely
