    Clancy Hatleberg biography -
    Clancy Hatleberg served in the US Navy from 1965 to 1981. He had many different assignments as a commissioned officer, including Executive and Commanding Officer positions within the Naval Special Warfare community. Back then, special warfare meant Underwater Demolition Team (UDT) but now its referred to as “SEAL” since their mission has evolved into Sea, Air and Land operations.
    During the Apollo 11 recovery mission in 1969, Clancy was the UDT Team Leader and also the decontamination swimmer. As such he was responsible for providing the first line of defense in preventing potential contamination of the Earth by lunar pathogens that may have been brought back by the astronauts. He performed spacecraft and astronaut decontamination procedures while wearing a biological isolation garment (BIG suit). He then assisted the 3 astronauts with being hoisted up into their recovery helicopter to be flown back to the USS HORNET.
    Clancy was the first human to welcome the first humans to walk on another panetary body - Apollo 11 moon astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins - back to earth.
