My father, Peer Fossen, was the assistant editor of Missiles and Rockets Magazine & worked with Mr. Ordway in the late 50s.
I didn't know dad all that well and this period of time of his life was a mystery to me. I wasn't born until 1961 & he passed away 30 years ago.
For sometime now, I've wanted to know much more about dad and what he did before I was born.
Mr. Ordway was a vital link to dad and to those mid 50s Washington DC era stories that he shared with me.
I am eternally grateful to Mr. Ordway for this recent gift of time, phone conversation, email and recollection that he gave to me.
I wish I could have met him but today I honor Mr. Ordway, honor my dad and honor the time and work they shared.
