Former Stroudsburg Man Had Good View of Landing
Stroudsburg --- When Apollo made its historic splashdown in the Pacific Thursday, Albert Shively, formerly of Stroudsburg, and one of the best views to watch the proceedings.
Shively, a Marine captain, didn't see the event on television from a comfortable living room, but rather caught a bird's eye view from the U.S.S. New Orleans, the veteran recovery ship.
Mrs. Frank Fraunfelter of 903 Clay Ave., Stroudsburg, Shively's grandmother, said she was "glued to the television set all afternoon" in the hope of seeing her grandson.
"I didn't spot him, but then I really didn't know what type of uniform he would be wearing or anything," she said.
Mrs. Fraunfelter said her grandson learned he would be on the ship in June. Shively, 28, had previously served as the only Marine on U.S.S. Paul Revere.
"As I understand it, the skipper of the U.S.S. New Orleans had specifically asked that he be on the ship. I believe he was in the line of men who welcomed the astronauts aboard," she said.
Shively, who stayed at his grandparents' house during the summer and other times throughout the year, attended East Stroudsburg High School.
Mrs. Fraunfelter says she sometimes has mixed feelings about the space program as "I guess almost everybody does."
"I only know for sure my grandson supports it. He probably knows more about it, so in the long run I'm with him."
