January 28, 1986......20 years ago was a sad day for America. A whole nation watched in horror at the space shuttle "Challenger" explosion that took the lives of seven courageous astronauts.
Tough to believe that its been 20 years!

Marines.......

I was in the Marines and had just arrived at Goodfellow AFB in Texas for a 6 month school. I had everything I own in the back of my 67 Fairlane. The apartment handyman saw me unloading my car and noticed I didn't have a TV. Being a nice Texan, he offered to GIVE me one that he had because it only worked on one channel. Luckily, that was the channel you need for cable TV. To make a long story short, he took me to his place and was showing me how nice the picture was on my new free TV and he said, "Hey Look, they're about to launch the space shuttle, let's watch it."............................


EDIT: I forgot to mention, his name was Ford, and he drove a Chevy truck. No kidding.
