Douglass House another D.C. stop to make

Not long ago, I wrote about my sons and I taking our "Cahn All-Boys 2014 Spring Break" trip to see my father outside Washington, D.C.

Thinking of grandfathers on Memorial Day

I didn't like the military very much while I was growing up. I could chalk that up to being a pre-teen and early teenager during the Vietnam years when -- quite unfortunately -- this country didn't treat its vets very well. I think I also didn't deal well with authority figures since I grew up kind of scrawny and was bullied a bit as a kid.

At the camp, which serves as headquarters for the S.C.
