Someone got it wrong

That's not Shoup in blues, but it is Wade in Summer Dress. That officer would be the CO of the Honor Guard. Can't see his rank, but looks like a captain. Shoup was never without his stack, including his MOH. Besides he wore glasses. Just an old Gunny's observations.

Looks like a Captain to me as well. Most likely a company commander. Although he doesn't look as young as most captains. It looks like he's wearing only one ribbon. Damned if that wouldn't be one hell of a big honor guard too. Most likely a company of recruits spiffed up with white rifle slings. The press was just as accurate back in 63 I guess.

Probably combined Sea School and Comm-Elect School troops.
