I was 16 and a freshman in Bartlett, TX (had to wait till I turned 7 to start school). I could hardly wait to play high school football in the fall. I hadn't taken driver's ed yet so I had to rely on my parents or big brother to get around. I did have my first real job, that being getting up early in the morning and going from grocery store to grocery store to stack Holsom bread in the shelves. I made $15.00/week. I also shined shoes on the weekends in the barber shop at 15 cents a shine. What a Life.

I was in Camp Lejuene, NC. The Inauguration didn't impact me as much as November a couple of years later. I remember that VERY well.

It was cool seeing the unreleased photo's from this day 50 years ago. My favorite is JFK, in top hat, walking from the White House.

Here is the link to the photo's from Life: Rare and Unseen: JFK's Inauguration - Photo Gallery - LIFE

6 weeks old and I could have cared less about what was going on. My world was sleep, eat, poop, repeat.

Busting my butt earning a living for my wife and three kids in the east bay area of San Francisco. Didn't have much time or interest in politics or inaugurations. Not a good time in my life.

I was 15 and so excited about this new young president and the feeling that this was a president for the people.
