From Shoebox to Rockets

From Shoebox to Rockets
Today, I was going to post about my grandfather’s memoirs, including many pictures of him in uniform. He self-published, primarily for the family, the year before he died. I was researching a link to his work at the Smithsonian, when I was completely derailed by a signed copy of his book for sale online. Abebooks.com asked more than twice the original value for a signed copy from a library. At first I was excited to see the book for sale with a 5 star rating, but then I realized the five stars were for the condition quality which made me want to buy it and march it back to the library it came from and demand it was put back on the shelf.
