This is an interesting artifact. On July 21, 1969, Robert "Getruth" (Gilruth) received a telegram from the International Conference of Police Associations, commissioning "Spacemen Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins" the first Peace Officers in space. While it was an honorary title, it was certainly expressed with a noble enthusiasm. Despite the obvious tongue-in-cheek nature of the memo, NASA filed everything... so here it is, 40 years later, for our amazed eyes. This one didn't make my book, but I wish it had! [Pardon the watermarks!]
Taking a slow Sunday to organize some new book proposals and think a bit about Apollo 11 40th anniversary activities.
