DCA was formed 55 years ago by a handful of corps who understood that the American Legion was no longer meeting their needs. That scenario could repeat.  It would require vision, leadership and c

I always recognized echoes of Eddie in your own announcements at DCA shows and on the recordings. At one time, DCA had lots of photo finishes and dark horses. Not so much recently.
