    I  graduated from HS that year and had just returned from a summer program at the college I would attend in the Fall. I watched it with my family on our one TV in our den. It seemed surreal.

    I was only a month old, but I'm sure my parents were sitting in amazement.

    Senior in high school, sitting in front of the TV and even then knew this was remarkable history right before my eyes.

    I have to say, unfortunately, that I was sitting in a car outside a downtown dentist's office waiting for a friend to return with drugs . . . the car radio announced the landing or the first steps or something, and the friend and I waiting in the car had a clear view of the moon from our seats - we mentioned to each other what giant asses we were.

    We watched it on TV. We were having a family barbecue. I remember an uncle telling us kids to remember this day so we could tell our grandkids about it.

    I actually wasn't born until two years later but my parents watched it in amazement.  It is amazing to sit and listen to the folks who were around during that time; they speak with such pride and happiness.  I am proud to say that I've served 20 years in the same branch of service that he was a part of ... "Fair Winds and Following Seas, Sir."

    It was in the summer before going off to college. I remember watching it while sitting in the recliner. I was old enough to remember the challenge issued by President Kennedy to put a man on the moon and return him safely by the end of the decade.

    I thought then it might start a change of greater cooperation within the country and with other countries. I was wrong.

    It was still a fantastic event.
