MALE SPEAKER: When man landed on the Moon, I had just graduated from Ishpeming High School in the heart of the Iron Mining Company country in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and I was working on Mackinac Island, a summer resort, and the boys lived in one place, and the girls lived in another place. And the girls had a television, and the boys didn't have a television.

My birthday was July 18th, 1969. I turned 18 years old. Very shortly after that, the owners of the hotel allowed the boys to go to the girls' residence to watch man walk on the Moon, and that's where I was when man first set foot on the Moon was on Mackinac Island, Michigan.
