  • Grissom column evoked childhood memories

    Editor:

    I just wanted to thank Dave Taylor for his story about our Gus Grissom and his role in the space program. Before coming to Carrollton on a part-time basis, I lived all my life in Mitchell and was a young boy during the 60’s. In 1956, when I was in the first grade, Gus visited our class while he was stationed at what is now Grissom A.F.B. His oldest son, Scott, was in our class. I can still remember that fighter pilot helmet with Grissom on the front.
