"The 105-piece U.S. Army Field Band passed the grandstand on the Presidio of San Francisco parade ground where crowds assembled to watch the colorful retreat ceremony and review of troops which closed the Open House observance of Armed Forces Day at the Presidio on May 20 (1950)." (That's Commanding Officer/Founder Chester "Chet" Whiting on the left with Executive Officer Robert "Slim" Bierly in the center)
