Who remembers this?

On January 20, 1989, The U.S. Air Force Band and all sister service bands set off down through the Nation’s Capital to commemorate the Inauguration of George H. W. Bush as the 41st President of the United States. The USAF Band, along with the nation, continue to mourn and celebrate this great patriot. Our thoughts return back to this historic day and the opportunity to usher in this new administration.

Looking forward to the 80th Anniversary of The Army Air Corps song (aka, The U.S. Air Force" song in 2019!
This picture was found in the personal belongings of trombonist John Shuman (1919-2002) who played with the Army Air Forces band at Bolling Field between 1942 and 1944. Can anyone help identify the location?
Hi everyone, My name is Richard Righthand because I was adopted at birth 61 years ago and have only just found out this week that my birth father was Donald F Rosenstein who enlisted in AF in 1952 and posted to Mitchel Field until 1956 He was in the Air Force Band and played Clarinet I'm looking for anyone who was in the band with my dad and knew him Unfortunately he passed away in 2009 without ever even knowing I existed My father's widow and my "new" brother and sisters are trying to fill in but it's difficult because they came after 1960
