I was 13. It is burned into my memory (maybe bad wording) as much as when I first heard President Kennedy was dead.Apollo. I was 12 at the time. It’s one of those life events you’ll never forget. I remember all of society and world being stunned by the horror of it.
I also remember the launch of the first Saturn missile. I was in 3rd grade at St Mary Catholic school in Rockledge, FL. They marched us outside to watch it. I did not really understand what the big deal was, we saw lots of missile launches.
