    My father was part of the color guard representing the USCG. He is the closest to camera walking backwards in front of Ferdinand Marcos. In 1966, we lived at Sangley Point NAS where my dad flew search and rescue missions in the South China Sea. Still 124-127. Would like info on purchase of multiple stills.
