28. They could be from the USMMA
An old Mariner here, from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy class of 1984!! The caps look familiar. As a matter of fact, I had the "honor(?)" of marching in Ronnie Raygun's first Inauguration in 1981 as a plebe at the Academy. I remember having our dummy M-1 rifles being inspected by Secret Service and the admonition to not "move a muscle" with the rifle while were marching as security was "extra tight". I also remember having to stay in step while marching behind a mounted horse unit. Symbolic of the new Administration?? Draw your own conclusions!!
