    Cernan & Stafford

    Here is a photo of my wife and I with Lt General Thomas Stafford and Captain Eugene Cernan the last man to walk on the Moon. Also Cernan spent the most time on the lunar surface and drove the rover the farthest.

    Thomas Patten "Tom" Stafford (born September 17, 1930), (Lt Gen, USAF, Ret.), is an American former Air Force officer, test pilot, and NASA astronaut. He flew aboard two Gemini space flights; and in 1969 was the Commander of Apollo 10, the second manned mission to orbit the Moon and the first to fly a Lunar Module there.

    Eugene Andrew "Gene" Cernan (/ˈsər.nən/; born March 14, 1934), (CAPT, USN, Ret.), is a retired American naval officer and Naval Aviator, electrical engineer, aeronautical engineer, fighter pilot, and NASA astronaut. He launched into space three times: as Pilot of Gemini 9A in June 1966, as Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 10 in May 1969, and as Commander of Apollo 17 in December 1972, the final Apollo lunar landing.

    It's was all about the Omega Speedmaster Professional, the first and only watch worn on the Moon. A fund raiser for the Nevada Cancer Institute.
