Gus Grissom and Exploring


Recommended Posts

Doubt it.  Explorers started in Sept, 1949. At that time, he was a  23yr old WW2 veteran attending Purdue. In 1950, he graduated with a BS in mechanical engineering.

For those units interested in learning more about Gus Grissom there is a small, but nice,  Gus Grissom Memorial located at Spring Mill State Park.  Spring Mill is located right outside of Grissom's hometown of Mitchell, Indiana.   The state park is also a great place for scouting units to visit even without the Memorial.  It has a youth campground,  hiking trails,  caves, a cave boat tour, and a very nice pioneer village with interesting building to explore.
