LASD's Nexus to NASA Astronaut now in space

NASA Astronaut, now in space, is the son of a retired LASD Sergeant. 

 

Astronaut Randolph Bresnik (Lieutenant Colonel, USMC), who is the mission specialist onboard Space Shuttle Atlantis, has a close nexus to LASD.  His father, Randy Bresnik, is a retired LASD Aero Bureau Sergeant, who is now working as a Reserve Sergeant at Aero Bureau. 

Rebecca Bresnik, wife of the astronaut, gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday afternoon while her father was 220 miles above earth, and this has generated a lot of media attention.
