    I was 14, very interested in the space program. Pretty sure I watched the launch, but can't remember precisely.

    Oakland/Alemeda Army/Navy Hospital. TVs were only in the dayrooms. I couldn't get out of bed.

    I was in Vancouver B.C. sitting on the couch with my Grandfather watching the launch on an old RCA black and white T.V.

    It was quite a deal. I remember us smacking the old Zenith for a better picture. That's funny because the younger people don't know why you would do it or how effective it could be. I won't even begin talking about walking around a room with an old metal coathanger. :) Lord, those were good days!

    I am old enough to remember being the remote control for my parents!

    All of us were huddled around the TV in my moms room. The “big” TV broke right before that day. I think it was a rainy day but who knows. I was 11.

    We were home with our first child, in Glenolden, PA. The actual moon landing was the day of her Christening, so a lot of people were watching it on our TV.

    I was onboard the aircraft carrier USS Wasp out on the Big Pond watching in the library.
