We Were Boomers Once ... and Young

Today is Saturday, 3 October 2009.

On this date in 1955, Captain Kangaroo debuted.

A Boomer reference:

The column title is a reference to Hal Moore's book about the Battle of Ia Drang in Vietnam, 14-16 November 1965, We Were Soldiers Once ... and Young.

On this date in 1942, a V-2/A4 rocket, launched by Nazi Germany, became the first human artifact to reach outer space.
