Christopher Roosa, USMC; his widow Joan Roosa, (in wheelchair); his daughter Rosemary Roosa; and daughter-in-law Whitney and his son Allen Roosa. Each of the honored astronauts or their surviving families was presented with a lunar sample, part of the 842 pounds of moon rocks and soil returned during the six lunar expeditions from 1969 to 1972. Roosa's family chose to display the award that featured a small piece of the moon at the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in Titusville, Fla.
