    Sadly he died so young; but he died doing what he loved doing and helped get America to the moon! That was one brave dude.

    I'm a big Gus fan... He truly epitomized the right stuff.

    I remember that horrible event in 1967 pretty well. The moon landing was not achieved without loss of life. I personally think landing on the moon is mankind's greatest achievement. Grissom, White, and Chaffee definitely helped make it happen.
