July 21, 2004 DeLand, Florida - On June 21, 2004, I received an e-mail from Jim Oglesby, a writer and retired U. S. Postal Service letter carrier who had worked for Bendix Corporation as a machine tool technician in its contract with the Apollo program at Cape Canaveral, Florida. Apollo 11 was the first mission to put the American flag and human footprints on the moon. Its commander was aerospace engineer Neil A. Armstrong. The lunar module pilot was USAF Col. Buzz Aldrin and the command module pilot was USAF Lt. Col. Michael Collins.
