i recently came across 16mm film containers with a lot of footage of the presidential and travels to this dedication
I was in the army stationed at Fort Hood. A Unit of men went down there and eight were chosen to be present at the area of the meeting of the two Presidents. I was selected to be a member of that group of 8. It was a thrill to be so near to the ceremony. Our outfit was 634 infantry battalion Second Armored Division Oct. 24 2018
I didn"t see me but i was here. I was on old 83 probably across from Clark Chevrolet.

I watched the motorcade in 1953. We picked a bouquet of sticker burrs and gave them to the guards in an open jeep to give to the president.
