To the moon: The flagmaker

Some days you just have to stand back and realize it. There's no money in it, all your friends are looking for jobs, the doomsayers are becoming prophets, it's long hours with sometimes little thank you, and most days it seems like no one even sees your hard work unless Michael Jackson or Britney Spears are involved, but some days, you remember it. You remember why you love this job.

I met this really amazing gentleman on Monday for a story to tie in to the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.

Oscar Torres reflects on his part in creating the American flag that astronauts placed on the moon.

What a character. :)
