Addressed by Aldrin to: "Mrs Dorothy Wicks/Lake Lanier Mobile Home Pk Lot #33/3000 Clarksbridge Rd/Gainesville, GA 30501". Buzz Aldrin, a 1951 West Point graduate, had flown 66 missions in Korea, winning the Distinguished Flying Cross. He flew F-100s in Germany before persuading the Air Force to send him to M.I.T. for a doctorate. Although he was turned down for the astronaut program in 1962, Aldrin was later aboard one Gemini mission (Gemini 12), and became a close friend of astronaut Ed White, one of the Apollo I astronauts who died in a launch pad fire. Aldrin and Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong left the patch from that ill-fated mission on the surface of the Moon. During the Apollo 11 mission, Aldrin piloted the Lunar Excursion Module, Eagle, and became the second man to walk on the Moon (July 20, 1969). Ink smudged at the "t" in Lot. Torn open at upper edge. Fine condition.
