RIP
Hummm... Somewhere in my father's effects in an old cedar chest in a back room, I have a very complimentary letter from Alan Bean to my father's CO. Dad was a Navy instructor on A-4 (Skyhawk) electronics and Bean went through his class at some point in the mid-60's. I haven't thought about it in years.

He became a painter later in life. Guess what he painted...
