American Forces Press Service


WASHINGTON, Nov. 5, 2004 - The Joint Task Force Armed
Forces Inaugural Committee
announced Nov. 3, the day after the elections, that it's
open for business.

The unit is providing military ceremonial support to the
2005 presidential inaugural.
The committee is formed several months before the
presidential election to provide
military ceremonial support to the Inauguration and related
activities during the 10-
day period that culminates with Inauguration Day, Jan. 20.

The military tradition of providing inaugural support
started in 1789. Then, local
militias joined George Washington's inaugural procession as
it passed through towns
along the way from his home in Mount Vernon, Va., to New
York City. When Washington
arrived in New York, a presidential escort composed of
Continental Army members
accompanied him to Federal Hall for the presidential oath.

The Defense Department established the Armed Forces
Inaugural Committee in the 1950s
as a temporary task force comprised of soldiers, sailors,
Marines, airmen, and Coast
Guardsmen to render military honors to the president during
inaugural events.
President Dwight Eisenhower was the first to have committee
support for his
Inauguration in 1953.

Army Maj. Gen. Galen Jackman and Air Force Brig. Gen. Duane
Lodrige are commander and
deputy, respectively. The committee is also the DoD liaison
to support the
Presidential Inaugural Committee and the Joint
Congressional Committee on Inaugural
Ceremonies.

(Based on a press release from Joint Task Force-Armed
Forces Inaugural Committee.)

I was completely unaware of this. Thanks for posting it. I LOVE American traditions, especially those surrounding the President. You're right. Kerry would have received the same reception. I'm willing to bet that the The Joint Task Force Armed Forces Inaugural Commission would have performed the service for him with honor and dignity, befitting a President of the United States. But, deep down, they would have known that he don't deserve it any more than Benedict Arnold. With honor, they would not have protested the will of the people. Thank God the will of the people was tainted with enough wisdom to elect a W.
