    Skylab 2,Skylab3, and the Apollo-Soyuz Space mission recoveries aboard USS New Orleans (LPH-11)…oh yeah, we also swept Haiphong Harbor for mines in 1973 at the end of the war.

    In 1981, my wife and I watched the space shuttle, Columbia, touch down at Edwards Air Force Base. This was the first landing of a shuttle. The memorable thing about it was the fact that I had my Mom with us. Mom was born in 1897 before the first airplane and here she was watching a space shuttle land. Quite a thrill for my dear old Mom.

    I have served in or with the U.S. Army over-seas in six decades (and been shot at in four of them), so yes I have been in a few.

    i do not know if serving on a destroyer during vietnam supporting land forces is acceptable which i have done as a sailor-i worked at the world trade center for 20 yrs and was there in the 1993 attack and the 2001 attack and bore witness to both horrific events and was lucky to escape both -as an unwilling participant
