Congratulations! You're a Civilian Now.

Over the Memorial Day Weekend, I came across this scene: a Naval Honorable Discharge Ceremony in Washington Square beside the plinth with Ben Franklin atop and a time capsule below it. I have no idea who this person is but, nevertheless, the episode was very touching to witness.
I, too, thank him for his service.
Congratulations, You're a Civilian Now

Dean, what exactly is the discharge ceremony composed of? It looks like the two guys in the foreground are about to attack the guy in the back with sticks.

It does look like the crowd is moving in on this sailor, doesn't it.
