Ok now this is by far the best proof that they did land on the moon that I have, though it is just gossip really, but for the reasons of the
information and the way it was revealed, I believe it would lend credence. I had been assigned to a tour in Germany in the Army in 1973. I was
stationed at an Army base in Schweinfurt Germany. It was a run of the mill place primarily an Armor unit, anyway as my recolection. While there I made
a few friends, other soldiers, and life was good. I shared a room in a barracks with a guy from Texas, one from Ohio and another guy from AnnArbor MI.
We became good friends as GI's do being far from home and in a foreign land. Lots of time was spent at the bowling alley, and my friend was Pro.
skill at knocking them down, in every conceivable way. There were times we would talk about just about everything when whiling away the time. I think
an aside to the Moon mission was a footnote that the preperation for returning to earth was a malfunction that was noted, or that remember reading or
hearing at some point years later, of the ignition toggle switch toggle breaking off and the Astronauts having to use a ? Bic pen or a pencil ? to
activate the switch for blastoff from the Moon. Well I haven't thought of the time-frame, but if I recall right this would have been within a year or
so of 1973? I don't know, I never bothered or investigate, and probably should have prior to writing this, but anyway.... My friend and I got to
talking about the Moon landing and he was telling me stuff his mother had done in the construction of the landing craft. He had told me that a little
known (at the time) was the incident with the toggle, in which his Mom had been the one working on the panel installing switches and such, and after
the incident his Mother was in Deep Chit and an investigation took place, also as we later have been told, how the broken toggle nearly cost the
Astronauts their lives. It was a BIG thing, but at the time when it was told to me by my Buddy, it wasn't yet disclosed to the public. I'v always
remembered that story, and of course no one could construe it as conspiracy, because it wasn't even known when I first heard it. It just makes me
think it all actually happened. i too have seen the conspiracy movies and documentaries and such, and was leaning towards it being a fake, that was,
until I remembered this incident of the story my friend had told. So take it for what it's worth, sometimes it's little bits like this that
corroborate what the government had issued as the story, and the subsequent truth of it. I just thought I'd tell this, to give both sides a bit more
information in making their own minds up.
