Today, July 20, 2009, marks the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing by astronaut Neil Armstrong. Almost everyone who was alive at the time will remember the day. They will remember where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news. I, too, remember where I was and what I was doing on that day, However, I did not hear the news of the moon landing for several more years. I was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam and on July 20, 1969, I was in a small box that sat out in the sun in the third month of a prolonged interrogation about what the Communists were convinced was an escape attempt.

Americans are good at celebrating anniversaries and this year has marked some memorable 40-year anniversaries of events that occurred in 1969. It's hard to believe 40 years has passed, but I was 19 when man first walked on the moon. It really takes you back. It also has been 40 years since all of those young people came together at Woodstock for what became a generation-defining event. Three days, man, of peace, love and music. The paper did stories this summer looking back at those two events, but for those of us who were alive at the time, it certainly was a tumultuous time.

Letters to the editor Some questions on Mars landing To the editor: The Mars landing and exploration generates several questions that need to be asked and answered to forestall skepticism about what is being presented for public consumption. First, we see on TV what is supposedly from a camera somewhere in back of the robot showing the robot and the area ahead. In the past to get such a picture another camera had to be used adjacent to the area. In the moon landing this was accomplished by another member of the mission.
