FEMALE SPEAKER: I guess what I'd like to talk about is the fact that I was very privileged in my first year of college. My dad worked for Grumman in Bethpage, Long Island, New York, and I went into their summer program, and I was very fortunate to be able to work on the LEM program in 1968.

I went in as an assistant secretary. I believe at the time, I had eight men that I worked with, and it was a very exciting time because Grumman was awarded the space program, and it was the beginning of a lot of their space programs with the LEM and the Apollo. So it was very exiting for a young college student to be very involved in the beginning of a very exciting space program.

1969 was also the year of Woodstock. We'll leave that part out.
