It was good to see Milt again, after several decades. He looked very spry for someone his age. When we arrived, I saw him coming down the hall towards me. I recognized his walk before I could see his face. We worked together in the late '60s before he became a flight director. He's a great guy and a good representative for the manned space program - back when there really was one, that is.

Thanks Milt for your service to the space program and the contributions it made. People sometimes forget that space missions are a team effort and all those who made contributions deserve the proper credit. Crew members that flew the missions are not the only ones that made great sacrifices.
