Where were you, all on July 20th, 1969 when Apollo 11 landed on Moon?

 

I can’t believe this year is going to be the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 Moon Landing!!!

Indeed, it was the first summer I had here in the U.S. since I arrived in Richmond, Virginia

to start my new life in America.

Dr. and Mrs. HM Lee, my mentor, kindly invited me and my family, my wife and two daughters, 5 and 3 years old,

to join to his family vacation to come to Virginia Beach to spend one week together.

 

This first summer vacation was the most memorable affair to me, especially because of Apollo 11 Moon landing

we watched on TV with such suspense. Dr. HM set up the TV for such special occasion in the screened porch of 

the beachfront house he rented to watch this once in a lifetime event. 

We spent the whole evening with Chesapeake blue crabs and beer, watching Neil Armstrong

and Buzz Aldrin to step onto the lunar surface.

I still vividly recall such ecstatic moment I never had again for the last 50 years,

together with Walter Cronkite’s exciting voice, ‘liftoff! liftoff!’, still ringing in my ears!!!!

What a summer it was!
