TLS signed “John W. Young,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, July 18, 1975. Letter of recommendation for Guenter Wendt, in part: “For 13 years it has been my privilege to observe the outstanding performance of Guenter Wendt. He has been the Senior Pad Leader for every manned space mission that this country has flown…He has been responsible for the activities of the launch vehicle close-out crews which include spacecraft technicians, crew systems suit technicians, and safety and quality assurance technicians. The perfect success record of these crews under the pressure of final launch vehicle countdowns for manned spacecraft launches on time speaks for itself. This perfection has been due to the remarkable attention to detail in every aspect of the complex spacecraft countdown by Guenter Wendt.” In fine condition. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
