This evening one of my recent book acquisitions caught my eye as I walked by my to read stacks.
Many of you probably thought of The Mercury Seven astronauts, and that is exactly what this book is about.
- M. Scott Carpenter
- L. Gordon Cooper, Jr.
- John H. Glenn, Jr.
- Virgil I. Grissom
- Walter M. Schirra, Jr.
- Alan B. Shepard, Jr.
- Donald K. Slayton
Here is another picture that comes from a newspaper clipping that was saved by my Grandma. See my post: The Mercury Seven
I look forward to reading this book as I have always enjoyed following the space program. At one time when I was young I wanted to be an astronaut. Of course, there were many other things I wanted to be 🙂
Walter M. Schirra, Jr. is also interesting to me as at one time I lived on Schirra Street in Omaha.
Now back to the Olympics.
