Personal Quote:

[About his record of covering every US manned space mission beginning with the first in 1961] "I'm proud that I've been able to accomplish something that can never be matched," Barbree said. He said he's sure other journalists will cover as many launches in the future, but no one else will be able to say they did so from the start. See more »
