COLONIE - The Presidential Inauguration has become somewhat of a family affair for a father and son.

During this year's ceremony in Washington, Colonie High School graduate Sean Lee will be marching in the inaugural parade with the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps. He's a music education major at Boston University and his family is proud.

Even more interesting is that John Lee, Sean’s father, marched in Richard Nixon’s Inauguration Day parade with his catholic grade school, St. Peter's. That was back in 1968.

Both men play the trumpet and the Lee's call this a once in a lifetime experience.

John says who knows - maybe one day he'll have a grandson who will also march in an inauguration parade.
