The announcement of Neil Armstrong's death today and pictures of his being the first man on the moon on July 20, 1969 caused me to see how I recorded the event at that time. "We went to late Church. Aldrin and Armstrong landed on the moon about 4:00pm. They are to get out and walk on the moon in just a few minutes (10:15), " I noted the following day that we stayed up till 1:00am watching the moon walk. Tim was out in Lincoln for UN-L Freshman orientation. A few days earlier Tim and I had gone down to JFK, sat in upper deck box seats and watched the Senators beat the Yankees both games of a double header. We didn't get home till 6;20. A few days later Jon ran into a car with his bike and needed 9 stitches in his forehead at the Alexandria Hospital emergency room. Verlon was working in Richmond and thinking of joining the Navy. Laurie flew back to Baltimore with Tim following his orientation and we took them to the White House to see Nixon and the visiting German Chancellor Kissinger. My promotion to Assistant Director of Personnel for SCS was being processed. Jon decorated the basement for Carolyn's 16th birthday. I took Elaine to Trader Vic's for her 39th birthday. It was a busy time in our lives.
