EAA Chapter 1240 Annual Dinner with Story Musgrave

Ex-Astronaut Story Musgrave to be the featured speaker for EAA Chapter 1240 annual dinner. A Special Journey From a Dairy Farm to Space… with Ex-Astronaut Story Musgrave.

Musgrave was born on a dairy farm in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. He was in the forests alone at age 3 and by 5 floated his home built rafts on rivers. He rode combines at age 5, drove trucks and tractors at 10 and when alone in remote fields repaired them by himself. He never finished high school, but instead, ran off to Korea with the U.S. Marines where he became an aircraft electrician and engine mechanic.
