This iReport is part of an assignment:
Space to Smithsonian: The shuttle's final journey
I got to share this event and childhood memories, with my kids and good friends! Appreciating the luxury I had to grow up on The Space Coast with the ability to watch launches and see the shuttle piggy-backed home (just like today) all from my front lawn! Fortunate to be there at the very first launch and now the final landing.
God Bless America
As for the flag pole . . .
Yes, it is real. I just got lucky!
