Sound guesswork, Patches: 1st Battalion, 66th Infantry Regiment (Light Tanks) was stationed at Ft. George G. Meade, Maryland, in 1939, which is nearby Washington, D.C., and its tanks would have been natural participants for ceremonial duties such as this. Perhaps one our tank specialists will interpret the triangle "C" (tactical marking?) on the sponson for us and pin down the exact unit identification of this tank.
...this tank carries a Guidon for a Company B...66th Infantry Regiment (Light Tanks) would be my guess...

I've got a pile here! First three are from circa 1939-1940 of the 29th Tank Company on its way to the State Military Reservation at Virginia Beach, with the last M2A3 in tow. The 29th was from Danville and in 1940 became Company C, 191st Tank Battalion. I've had these pictures so long I don't know where they came from. The Norfolk, VA library I think.
6th Infantry Division SSI on 6th Tank Company M2s, 1939. From the Saint Louis Globe-Democrat via the St. Louis Mercantile Library.
There is also an excellent picture for sale on ebay right now from the previous decade of the 7th Tank Company at Fort Snelling conducting a demonstration attack in 1923 with M1917s.
