Presidential Inaugural Parade Photo Of Richard H. Dick James
3rd Special Forces Group 1965. "This photo was the official Presidential Inaugural Parade photo when a large group of Special Forces (mostly 3rd Group) was tasked to march in the parade and make complete fools of ourselves. I don't think a single one of us was in step. We had a military band in front of us and a college band in back of us. How in the hell could we be expected to be in step? The newspaper photo of us marching showed true route-step in action." -Richard H. Dick James. Photo by Richard H. Dick James.
