Not many can say they helped man set foot on the moon. Edwin Snyder is a local man who can make that claim.
Snyder, of Rineyville, worked for more than 20 years with IBM, which led to working seven years with NASA during the 1960s and the Saturn Apollo phase of the space program.
He was there when Apollo 11 and Neil Armstrong landed on the moon.
“It was tremendous and I felt really blessed that the Lord allowed me to be a part of it,” said Snyder, 85.
