KSC VIP Site (post 43)

At the KSC VIP Site there are several low grandstands for invited Apollo 11 guests. Marv and I mill around on the grassy area in front as they gradually arrive. We have a brief talk with Australian scientist- astronaut Phil Chapman. Former President Lyndon Johnson appears with a Secret Service escort. Former NASA Administrator James Webb sits to LBJ’s right. Not too far away are Peace Corps Director Sargent Shriver and Gen. William Westmoreland, U.S. Army Chief of Staff at the time. In a different section, we notice entertainers Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon. We also see Senators Barry Goldwater and Bill Proxmire.  (Vice President Agnew is in the Launch Control Center).
