Put These envelopes some place where they won't get lost, stolen or torn. They will be worth a lot of money someday. I don't have any more to say for now cause I hope to get them in the mail. I love you very much honey. I will see ya in a few weeks. I LOVE YOU!!!


6000 of these cachets were produced with each Hornet crewman receiving two, while the three astronauts, President Nixon, and Admiral John McCain each received twenty-five. These cachets are known to have been postmarked with the hand cancel and both types of Hornet machine cancels.
