Grateful Memories of Apollo 11 Moon Landing on July 20, 1969

Where were you on the evening of July 20, 1969?

If you were around that night, chances are you were watching Neil Armstrong take the first steps on the moon.

Last night I was eating a roast beef sandwich and to me, Arby’s and Apollo 11 always go together. The Summer of 1969 we were taking a family vacation to Mesa Verde in southwestern Colorado. We were driving back home through Denver and stopped for dinner. Inside the restaurant they had a small TV everyone was watching, showing coverage of the historic moon landing.

I’ll always remember trying my first Arby’s sandwich as the first astronauts were walking on the lunar surface. Since then, I’ve had an active interest in all the NASA programs, keeping up on the latest with Walter Cronkite‘s coverage on CBS-TV. That must have been what led me to become KING’s “Special Space Correspondent™.”

Speaking of space, the last shuttle landing is scheduled for early Thursday morning. According to NASA’s official website, Space Shuttle Atlantis should touch down at 3:56 a.m. MDT and the final command of “wheels stop” will end the 30-year shuttle program.
