I know John Kennedy got one the day before he was killed, and that Alan Bean and his Apollo 12 astronaut buddies after their successful moon adventure, but who else was accorded that honor In Fort Worth?

I believe Douglas McAuthur had one when I was about 5 YO in 1949.

I don't believe Kennedy had a parade on the 21st as he arrived pretty late in the evening. Next day, he had the speech in front of Hotel Texas, the Chamber breakfast, and a processional back to Carswell.
