Being pedantic, that looks at lot more like an F-106B, than an F-102…

I must have nothing better to do, the guest is Lt General Edward Snedeker USMC, then Commandant of the Marine Corp School.

Definitely an F-106

F-106B serial 57-2522 went to AMARC as FN0143 June 8, 1987. Converted to QF-106 (AD259). Shot down by AIM-120 on January 21, 1998.
I can only presume Snedeker is shaking hands with the 95th FIS commander – his name tag has “LT COL” barely distinguishable. Unfortunately, there is no online database to determine who the 95th’s commander was during this period. Snedeker took command of the Marine Corps School at Quantico on 1 November 1959, and served there until his retirement in 1963. He was instrumental in the formation of the Marine Military Academy, a boy’s school in Harlingen, TX. He passed away at the age of 92 in May 1995.

If anyone ever finds out the name of the 95th FIS Commander there, please let me know so I can update my 95th page on my website http://www.f-106deltadart.com/95fis.htm
