Down through the ages, great pioneering efforts - Marco Polo's journey to the orient, Columbus' discovery of America, colonization of the New World - have been subjects of penetrating study by historians, both professional and amateur. Such an event that will capture the imagination of future historians is happening now; it is the pioneering of space and you have been part of this effort. The Apollo/Saturn V Roll of Honor is a unique volume dedicated to the purpose of recording for all time the names of individuals who so diligently, over the years, put forth their energies and skills to make possible mankind's greatest expedition; that of sending three men to the moon and returning them to earth safely. Throughout the ages, individual contributors have all too often been forgotten. Not so here, your name and your deed will be preserved for our generation, and for those who follow. One copy of this volume will be placed in the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., a second in the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., and a third within an approporate monument. The emplacement of these volumes will occur shortly after the return of the astronauts from the moon. To commemorate the occasion of having your name entered into the Apollo/Saturn V Roll of Honor, you are being presented this doubloon, which will serve as evidence to your family, friends and acquaintances of your distinguised participation in man's greatest adventure."
