Three legendary astronauts—Neil Armstrong, Jim Lovell, and Gene Cernan—were in Kabul, Afghanistan, yesterday, meeting with American service men and women as well as young Afghan Air Force trainees.
From a NATO press release on the event:
“This is the best day of my life!” said Lt. Fatama Abteen, one of a small handful of female Afghan Air Force trainees. “I’m overwhelmed and extremely excited. It’s hard to communicate how much this means to me.”
