    Bright sunshine, slight breeze, it was perfect weather for a day of sightseeing in Washington, D.C. I, along with family members, had returned to the Capitol City for the first time since the 9-11 events of 13 years ago.

    Time constraints of our Maryland visit to see our son, David, who is employed with a civilian contractor at U.S. Navy Air Station Pax River in Lexington Park, allowed us only one day of activities in D.C.
