Author Francis French presents a copy of "In
The Shadow Of The Moon"  to the Captain of USNS Wally Schirra for the ship's library.

A wonderful little commemorative from the christening ceremony - a Zippo lighter. Affordable and very useful for many things.


With special thanks to NASSCO, General Dynamics, Tammy Brouillette,
Francis French and Thon Carr for all of their assistance with assembling this information.
