Rick Willoby, of Williamstown, got what he calls the “opportunity of a lifetime” when he was part of a security detail during the presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 21.
Willoby, a lieutenant with the Lexington Police Department, was among 28 officers, who provided security along the parade route.
He was about 20 feet from Pres. Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, as they strolled along Pennsylvania Avenue.
Willoby was stationed between 10th and 11th Streets along the parade route.
