    @mabotofu: I placed my cursor to pic and clicked to enlarge pic after I read your comment. Green and Navy Blue Looks like Abe in dark suit and very tall gaijin in green walking in front of green.honor guards on left of flags and Winter uniformed tall and short honor guards on right of flag. Small white uniformed soldiers behind. Is that Abe walking? Thanks for your comment. From now on, I will click every picture in JT articles.
