A Seat To History

Last Friday, U.S. flags flew at half staff in honor of the man who commanded the mission that planted the first U.S. flag on the moon. You, or your parents, might not be the pioneers that Neil Armstrong was. But your, or their, memories of momentous events help shape our history nonetheless.

The Philip Randolph Parker Company's founder, John McQuiston, also works as a reporter and anchor at the ABC affiliate in Sarasota, Florida. Friday, he produced, wrote and reported a story about two local men who played small parts in the big story of Apollo 11 and Neil Armstrong's historic steps on the moon July 20, 1969.

Note: John produced that story in a single day. We spend much longer polishing the documentaries we produce for you.
