Apollo 14

Apollo 14

My wife and I went for a walk at Downey Landing earlier this week. While walking, my eyes were drawn to the many plaques that are in the flower beds just outside the stores. They honor the Apollo spacecraft designed and built here in Downey. This particular one is for Apollo 14, the third lunar landing vehicle that carried astronauts Alan B. Shepard, Jr., the commander; Stuart A. Roosa, the command module pilot; and Edgar D. Mitchell, the lunar module pilot to the moon in 1971.

Where were you in 1971? Anywhere close to the moon? Me neither.:-(
