[in a letter to Apollo 11 Commander Michael Collins
] The ground shook and my chest was beating as though bombs were falling nearby. It seemed impossible for life to exist while carrying that fire. What a fantastic experience it must have been-the first man alone looking down on another celestial body, like a god of space!
During World War II, Lindbergh rose to the rank of Brigadier General in the U.S. Army Air Corps and in 1948, when the AAC separated from the army to become the US Air Force, he went along and kept that same rank. During WWII Lindbergh specifically requested Pacific Theather assignments only, since he had been a strong and vocal supporter and admirer of Adolf Hitler
and Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
