ROBERT OVERMYER
He thanks a Vietnam veteran: "My efforts in space pale in comparison."
Autograph Letter signed: "Bob Overmyer", 1p, 5¼x8. Houston, Texas, 1982 December 21. On NASA letterhead to "Dear Col. Rosenthal". In full: "Thank you for your request for 25 original photos. Due to other persons misuse of signed photos I am unable to comply with your request. However, if you can arrange for someone to send me the 25 names I will be more than happy to personally inscribe each one. I appreciate what the Viet Nam veterans did for this country and I truly thank you for your sacrifice in keeping this country free. My efforts in space pale in comparison to what you have given to this country. I truly want o send along the pictures so please try to jot down the names for me. Thank you". U.S. Marine Corps Colonel Robert Overmyer, who was first chosen for the USAF Manned Orbiting Laboratory Program in 1966, was later selected as a NASA astronaut. His maiden voyage, on the Columbia space shuttle (November 11-16, 1982) with Vance Brand, William Lenoir and Joseph Allen, was the first time four crew members were sent into space. Overmyer was later part of the seven member international crew of the Challenger space shuttle (April 29-May 6, 1985), which carried the European Spacelab module. He was 59 when he died in the crash of the VK30 prototype plane he was testing. Fine condition.
