Thread Name: BS: Where were you when.......
Subject: RE: BS: Where were you when.......
When folks landed on the moon I was in the Dayroom of HHC, 7th Infantry Division, Camp Casey, Republic of Korea. I could barely see the television because of the Korean employees who were watching.

When John Glenn orbited I was in high school -- the school wheeled in as many TVs as they could find so that we could all watch. Same with Carpenter's suborbital flight.

When the Salk vaccine came out I was in grade school. My mother insured that we were inoculated as soon as it became available. Later, I also got the Sabin vaccine, both as a kid and in the Army.

I don't remember where I was when Yuhg-Gugh invented fire....
