In the 1960s, Col. Ben Robinson was serving a tour of duty in Germany when his mother became seriously ill. His commanding officer was notified by the American Red Cross, which, by congressional mandate, is the only organization authorized to provide emergency communications to the armed forces. Robinson was given leave to visit his mother, who hadn’t spoken for two weeks due to her illness, according to Cindy Erickson, CEO of the American Red Cross Greater St. Louis Region. “When she heard his voice, she said, There’s my baby,” Erickson says. “The colonel really believes it was his presence—and the doctors do, too—that motivated her recovery. She lived another 30 years.”

Murrow and other political Washington elite. Frequent transformations of the lodge brought avid fishermen from around the world, including perhaps the most famous angler, George H. W. Bush, who came so often he established an annual Bonefish Tournament raising thousands of dollars for various charities.
Welcome friends. Today we take a harrowing journey, a journey upon which many younger tribesmen have never embarked. It is a journey fraught with hazards and obstacles, so much so that one wonders how any of our travelers ever make it. It is the curious migration of untamed clothes from the warm safe confines of the laundry room out across the open home to the more permanent habitat, the drawer.
