‘Maybe you’ll be going to Mars,’ Buzz Aldrin tells a 6-year-old Shiloh boy
Lukas Pilkey was so excited last week he could have leaped over the moon. The Shiloh 6-year-old got to meet one of his heroes — retired Air Force Col. Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. “It was really cool,” Lukas said with an ear-to-ear smile while donning a T-shirt with an astronaut on it. Lukas, his parents, Greg and Aerica Pilkey, and Aerica’s dad, Mike Dreps, stood in line for over three hours on Wednesday, Nov. 15 to get into the Center for Global Citizenship at St. Louis University to hear the famous astronaut speak.
