Dupont Circle is known for its colorful characters, and this gentlemen was no different. After he spotted me taking this picture he told me his story, which included being in the Pink Berets (Special Forces, of course) under George H. Bush. He received a dishonorable discharge by the former President for failing to complete his mission: invade Canada.
