Scouting and all three were very religious, none of them had a wife named
Ithaca and none of them every came to my house for dinner. I don't know who
wasn't in the Military....

Eagle....well for the USA, it symbolized the fact that America were the first
to Land and have a human person step onto the moon. It also opened limitless
possibilities such as opening a McDonalds on the moon!

There are a number of things: The flag, a plaque that states this voyage
came in peace, a patch of the Apollo 1 in memorial of the death of the
Astronauts from that flight, medallions from two cosmonauts killed amongst
other things. (I also believe that a golf ball was left there from the short
game that was played! Along with a twinkie....they last long on earth, why not

Probably PSA announcements for the BSA! I don't know, I don't get many
american cable channels (even when I do watch tv!)
