It’s Photo Friday!

These three images appeared in the May 29, 1955 edition of the Newark (NJ) Sunday Times. They show (left to right): Tomb Sentinels George Haupt and Martin Green preparing for guard duty at the Tomb of the Unknown; one of the 3d Infantry drill teams, complete with chromed M1 helmets and white accessories; and Continental Color Guard members Norman Krause and Edwin Rosenweig in early versions of the colonial uniforms and black wigs then worn by CCG. This is also from the period where Company A, 1st Battalion held the name “Honor Guard Company.”
