|KSCartist||Today (Sept. 17) we celebrate the birthdays of Tom Stafford (1930) Edgar Mitchell (1930) and Pam Melroy (1961).|
Interesting to note that Tom Stafford was announced as a member of Group 2 on his 32nd birthday.
|Tom||One heck of a birthday present!|
|KSCartist||Today is (again) an astronaut birthday tri-fecta. |
Tom Stafford in 1930
Edgar Mitchell in 1930
Pam Melroy in 1961
Though I only fly in space in my dreams and in my artwork I share the date with these fine folks - me in 1956.
Maybe some day we'll all go out to dinner together.
|Mike Isbell||Happy 80th birthday Gen. Stafford. |
Happy 80th birthday Dr. Mitchell.
Happy birthday Col. Melroy.
May you all have many more to come!

In attendance were, Armstrong, Cernan, Lovell, Engle, Cunningham, Haise, Lousma, Bean and obviously the General himself...
Forgive my indulgence of the unique picture of the last and first man together with me. That was a thrill.
|AstroAutos||Happy 83rd Birthday to both General Stafford and Dr. Mitchell.|
I have had the pleasure of meeting both men, and they were both very humble about their extraordinary achievements.
|Stafford Air&Space||Happy 83rd birthday to General Thomas P. Stafford! Today at the Stafford Air and Space Museum we are celebrating his birthday with free admission all day!
