Whoa!

Damn! There's a very good chance that I'm the Scout with the 3051 displayed on his shoulder.

I lived on Mather AFB outside Sacramento in 1955/56, plus-minus a few months, and I remember going to a TV station with our Cub Scout troop. I've no recollection of meeting a princess, but I do distinctly recall speaking on-camera about the Disney comics equivalent of the Cub Scouts, the "Junior Woodchucks", whose only identified members, IIRC, were Donald Duck's nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie. I've never forgotten this, so I jumped out of my chair when I saw my spittin' image in this photo.

Shorpy Rules!!
