Thank you for your interesting response, Carol. It was indeed a happy day for all of us. You are correct...they were trying to develop the bomb too. We were most fortunate to execute our's first. As a result, my tour of duty ended up in Italy...and it was wonderful. I cut in on the HC story too, and it filled in a lot of long standing blanks. Great show. Still looking for Edward Pigford, of Little Big Horn fame? LFT.
