Flying to the Moon

I’m thankful to be part of something bigger than myself
by Bob E.

In 1967, I began working for IBM FSD. The division was sold to Loral, and then to Lockheed Martin. There were many interesting programs over my 34-year career, and I was fortunate enough to earn awards and recognitions. That being said, the small plaque that said thank-you for my contribution to the lunar landings is treasured above all others. I would not be so bold as to say my efforts were all that significant, but to know I was a part of this milestone in history is something that I could never take for granted.
