Enjoy some time preparing for your special “birth” day with a fun, informative, express 1-Day Lamaze Class! You and your support person will learn anatomy, signs of labor, helpful hints for the coach and comfort measures such as breathing, relaxation techniques and various positions to help reverse back labor and failure to progress.

My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I
2 Massachusetts Avenue,North East
Washington, DC 20002
From: National Postal Museum
Through personal correspondence written on the frontlines and home front, this centennial exhibition uncovers the history of America’s involvement in World War I. The compelling selection of letters illuminates emotions and thoughts engendered by the war that brought America onto the world stage; raised complex questions about gender, race and ethnic relations; and ushered in the modern era. Included are previously unpublished letters by General John Pershing, the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces and a person who understood the power of the medium. In his postwar letter that begins “My fellow soldiers,” he recognized each individual under his command for bravery and service. My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I was created by the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in collaboration with the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University. Open 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily.
