  1. Thanks, David. I’d bet your father has fascinating stories to tell. We knew then how special it was to work on it. Nothing about it was ordinary. Glad you’re enjoying mine..

  2. Hi Jack,

    I just wanted to let you know that I am enjoying the series. I grew up with similar stories of the Apollo missions, particularly the computer related ones. My father was an Electrical Engineer and worked in the program shortly after he got out of college. I don’t remember much of those days (other than the excitement of the family gathering around the TV to watch launches) because I was very young when we moved to Huntsville in the mid-60s. But I do recall the stories he would tell to me and my friends in the 70s. One of these days I should probably sit down with him and write them down.

    Anyway, the series is much appreciated.
