Description of Pictures: Vince Houghton -- The International Spy Museum's Historian takes us on a wild tour of missions and schemes that almost happened, but were ultimately deemed too dangerous, expensive, ahead of their time, or even certifiably insane.
Latest Title: Nuking the Moon: And Other Intelligence Schemes and Military Plots Left on the Drawing Board
Vince Houghton is the historian and curator of the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. He also is the host and creative director of the Museum’s podcast, SpyCast, which reaches a national and international audience of over 3.5 million listeners each year. He is a veteran of the U.S. Army and served in the Balkans before receiving his Masters degree and Ph.D. in Diplomatic and Military History from the University of Maryland. He has appeared on CNN, NBC News, Fox News, NPR and other major outlets as an expert in intelligence history. His latest book is “Nuking the Moon: And Other Intelligence Schemes and Military Plots Left on the Drawing Board.”
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.

2019 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year:
(May/June) a two-day jaunt to New York City for my 62nd birthday.
That's it so far!
