What’s wrong in this JFK Funeral Picture?

What’s wrong in this JFK Funeral Picture?

Last-minute changes were made by the family and those changes were almost constant. By the time everything was ready and the last of the last-minute changes were made, the platoons from the Presidential Honor Guard Units were out of order. Right next to the grave site are the Irish Cadets. President Kennedy went to Ireland and was able to see a performance by the cadet drill team with which he was truly impressed. The family thought it would be a great honor to have the cadets attend.
