Dear Ms. Thomas:
Please allow me to formally express to you my profound interest in having the opportunity to display the Mercury VII space suit worn by Gus Grissom at our Grissom Memorial at Spring Mill State Park.
The memorial is a beautiful building located within the confines of Spring Mill State Park at Mitchell, Indiana. It houses many items and artifacts concerning Gus from childhood through his death in 1967. This special place helps to feed the dreams of young people from all over the world who come to visit.
Spring Mill State Park is located in the southern section of Lawrence County, Indiana. Lawrence County is the only county in the nation that can claim being the hometown of three astronauts. Astronauts Gus Grissom, Charles Walker, and Ken Bowersox all grew up in Lawrence County, Indiana.
Please give this request your utmost consideration. Rest assured the suit will be well cared for and displayed proudly both those entrusted with its care.
Thank you for your consideration.
Daniel W. Bortner, SPHR
