Apollo 11  45 Yrs 

"Stories From the Space Coast  ".

It has been a week of celebration of Apollo 11  across America, but there is a different kind of celebration going on the Space Coast of Florida.  Apollo 11 lifted off 45 years ago right here on our Space Coast of Florida home of Kennedy Space Center (Cape Kennedy)

There is a sense of American pride in the air on the Space Coast all this week. Most especially, today. The beaches are packed, the celebrations are plenty, stories are being shared, and the F16's have been flying across our beautiful beaches. 45 year celebrations will not be ending soon, not till way after splash down and recovery.

Here on the Space Coast of Florida we will be sharing the stories of those men and woman that worked and participated in helping Apollo 11. "The first men on the moon". 

Keep checking back throughout this celebratory event and If you constitute one of them please submit your story, thank you Friends.

I was on the recovery crew. At the age of 21 you
 just went through the motions. I was the backup crane
 operator on the Secondary Recovery Ship. Now that I'm older
 I feel proud and humble to have been a part of history.
