While in quarantine with the astronauts following the Apollo 11 mission, John McLeaish advised Neil Armstrong on how to handle the media regarding the "one small step for A man" issue. Armstrong signed the EVA page of McLeaish's Flight Plan with the famous words. McLeaish treasured it the rest of his life. Photo Credit: Bonhams

Several PAOs pictured at the post-quarantine Apollo 11 Splashdown Party.  From left to right: John McLeaish, Doug Ward (peeking over McLeaish), Paul Haney, Jack Riley, and Milt Reim. Ward and Neil Armstrong had the same Christian Dior tie, so Doug wore it while doing commentary of  the Apollo 11 landing, and also at the Splashdown Party.  He wore it 50 years later at the 50th Anniversary celebration in Mission Control.
