Just thought you might find this interesting. From a Marine who participated in the Reagan Ceremonies.

" I just arrived back in Washington DC last night after spending the last week going 24/7 working on the funeral. I am a World Famous Body Bearer at Marine Barracks 8th & I. I was fortunate enough to have the tremendous honor of carrying the President from the funeral home , and aboard and ashore Air Force One at Point Mugu. As I had a very personal role in the ceremony, I know personally everyone who did anything in it."

This individual is the first position on the right:

" All of the service men/women who took part in the funeral in California and DC were from Military District Washington, and were members of the ceremonial teams from each service (the national teams, not individual base honorguards). The only people who were not from DC, were the Marine Corps Band from 29Palms that played in Calif, and the marines from 1st division who shot off the howitzers at the airfield."
