    It looks like the Bonus Army. An elderly friend told me how his mother, a Jewish-Russian immigrant, would make sandwiches for the men and he’d hand them out as they marched over the bridge from their encampments in Anacostia down to the Mall.

      I was thinking the same thing. They look like vets, and they don’t look like an organized parade, more like a protest march. I’d bet Bonus Army too.
