New Kickstarter - See-Bassett Commemorative Gemini IX patch

On the heels of our successful inaugural Kickstarter campaign, Retrorocket Emblems has launched a second campaign to raise funds for a patch that commemorates Elliot See, Jr and Charles Bassett II as prime crew of Gemini IX. 

In November of 1965, Elliot See, Jr. and Charles Bassett II were selected as the prime crew of Gemini IX. Bassett and See were killed on February 28, 1966, when their T-38 trainer jet crashed. 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of their selection as the prime crew. The patch celebrates their selection and remembers their contribution to the US space program.

You can help fund the kickstarter here. The campaign ends February 22.
