Where Were You?

Where was I when man "first set foot upon the moon?

"Although I had been a fan of manned spaceflight since the mid 60's, I was away at summer camp in northern Wisconsin, cut off from TV and radio.  It wasn't until several days after the mission when one of the counselors was using an old newspaper to start a fire, that I learned of the success of the Apollo 11 mission.  I rescued the front page of the paper from the fire and read about the moonwalk - at least to the point where the article continued on another page.  I still have that crumpled page in my collection."
~Dr. William Hartel, St. Louis, Missouri

"I was 11 years old and I was at school.  I remember hearing the announcement on the intercom and all of us were really excited."
~Debbie Walker, St. Louis, Missouri

"We were camping and on our way to Yellowstone Park and stopped to camp in Rapid City, South Dakota so that we could vist Mt. Rushmore the next day.  That night one of the campers had a black and white TV plugged in at the shower/restroom area where we watched the landing on the moon.  It was an awesome moment to see for us, our children Brenda and Jack and their cousins Donna and Terry who were also with us."
~ Anita & Jack Lewis, Affton, Missouri

"I was 10 years old and incredibly, happened to be at the Kennedy Space Center when Apollo 11 landed on the moon.  My parents had planned a wonderful Florida vacation for my sister and me, but their timing was a little off.  It would have been great to have been there for the liftoff.  I do remember watching the landing on TV in a big room with other visitors.  It was an exciting place to be watching history, knowing it all began right there."
~ Cindy Lakin, St. Louis, Missouri

"Hilton Head Beach on Landing with B&W portable 12" TV, lost car keys in the surf and back at Savannah, GA.  US Army Flight School Instructor at 3am plus or minus when the first man set foot on the moon.  A great day for the United States of America."
~ Phil Hoza, Winnetka, IL
