    After a week of protests from veterans organizations, CBS Sunday night apologized for a segment on last week's "Amazing Race" that used a Hanoi war memorial as a prop.
    The memorial marks a downed American B-52 aircraft. The VFW, among other organizations, had blasted CBS for using the memorial as one of the spots where "Amazing Race" contestants searched for clues in their chase. "Parts of last Sunday's episode, filmed in Vietnam, were insensitive to a group that is very important to us - our nation's veterans," said the CBS statement, read before the start of Sunday's episode.
