Captain Rick: I remember this image during a missile test at Cape Canaveral in 1962. I recognize President John Kennedy at center, Vice President Lyndon Johnson to the left with his head resting on his fist and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara to the right with fingers on his chin. Check out the cool guy in glasses, holding a smoke behind Kennedy. It was the fashion in that day. How about that huge black phone to the left. I used to make calls on one of them. Gaze up and check out those awesome state-of-the-art black and white TV monitors. Last but not least…how about those tables in front of all. They had those great swing-up wings to extend table space. I remember sitting behind them in some high school classrooms.
