Tennessee native Lynn Hardin was 19 years old when he started working for the Army Map Service. That was in July 1963 when he was fresh out of high school. He knew next to nothing about maps, but soon he was selected for one of the most important tasks of the Apollo 11 space program: help locate the best landing site for Armstrong and Aldrin to land the Lunar Module, The Eagle.
