July 13, 1969 The Sunday Press Binghamton, N. Y.: Great Moment Coming by Dave Beal. Only a few truly great moments come in the lifetime of most individuals. The time is coming, though, in homes across the Southern Tier. The moment is coming somtime in the pre-dawn hours of Monday, July 21, when - if all goes as planned - Astronauts Edwin Aldrin and Neil Armstrong will become the first men to set foot on the moon.... And when the pictures come back into the living room of the split level home at 14 Corbin Street, Owego, the moment will have come for Reuben E. Long and his family. Mr. Long has worked since 1961 as manager for the Saturn rocket program at IBM-Owego. More than $80,000,000 in work has gone to the Owego facility to design and build computers, adapters and switch selectors for the Saturn, the rocket set to hurl the astronauts moonward at 7:32 a. m. Wednesday. Will Mr. Long be watching for the first glimpse of man on the moon? "You bet I will," he said. Will his three girls be up in the middle of the night, sharing his moment? The rocket program manager paused for an instant, wondering about 3 a. m. hours for 6-year-old Kathy Long, then declared: "Yes, they will." Celeste, 9, Vickie, 11, and Mrs. Long will be up at that unlikely hour, cheering for Reuben Long even harder than for the astronauts. (In 1960, he was living in one of the apartments at 208 Chemung Street, Waverly, NY.)
