Nineteen Days, Half a Million Miles, Expenses $33.31

At the beginning of August in 1969, Colonel Edwin Aldrin, Jr. submitted a two-page travel voucher for expenses. The trip the previous month was from Houston, Texas, to Cape Kennedy, Florida, to the moon, to the Pacific Ocean, to Hawaii, and back to Houston. The total expenses were $33.31, which was approved.

It’s hard to read, but I believe there was a $1 per diem for 19.25 days, minus two meals at $2.25 each, 56 cents for travel from his home to Ellington Air Force Base and back, $10 for travel around Cape Kennedy, and $8 for something I cannot read. Now, if only there were a frequent flyer program in those days, he would have really racked up! Buzz Aldrin posted this to his Facebook feed. -via Bits and Pieces
