Picture of the Day

Washington, DC, Friday, January 20, 1961: John F. Kennedy and Jacquelyn Bouvier Kennedy proceed from their Georgetown home for inaugural ceremonies and a full day of inaugural activities. This was such a positive, optimistic time for America.

My older brother, Bill, was in attendance at the main inaugural ball, having been selected to serve as an Honor Guard, representing the United States Coast Guard. He was on active duty at Cape May, New Jersey at the time. My Mother was very proud.
