What is (are) your(s) best memory(ies) about your NASA Career ?
Space program has been and continue to be one of the great adventures of our human race.

I was truly fortunate to join the program as a young man just after graduated in 1958 and I had the opportunity and privilege to be part of it all of my profesional life.

As to being a flight Dorector, I was one unmanned Apollo's 201, 202 and 501 - Gemini 4, 9, 10 and 12 - Apollo 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15.

It was extremely exciting, rewarding and great fun. 
We always had the Sense that we were exploring this new frontier, as representatives of all humankind could not - and still can't - imagine a greater opportunity.
