Thanks David. I was disappointed to have missed it on the scheduled date, and glad to be able to see it now!
I remember how well respected Scott Carpenter was at that time. He was originally scheduled to be a guest speaker at my first instructor course in 1968, in Longview, Texas. His advertised participation was one of the deciding factors that led me to attend that course, and we were all greatly disappointed when he had some important mission come up that caused him to miss that. It was still a great program that I never regretted, and led me to a long career in the diving business.
The older I get the better I was.
