40th Anniversary






The Apollo 11 mission was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong and 'Buzz' Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon, while Michael Collins orbited above.

Houston, once known for our oil industry, was forever changed when NASA came to town. The patches worn on our uniform still reflect the words "Space City U.S.A."

Not sure about tomorrow. I did call a co-worker today and he told me that he has not heard of any updates. Of course I will check first thing when I arrive to work. Sign up for my Twitter (Sidebar on the blog) and as soon as I hear something, I will let you know via Twitter.

Officer Mccoy you sure do know how to use photoshop. I think thats funny, advertising the hpd in space. Continue with your blog. I like reading all the articles and watching the videos, especially the trunk monkey and funny friday. After i saw the trunk monkey video i went to Youtube and watched all those clips. Expect to see me at the recruiting station in eight years.
