 “Come Up and Get Me” is a long-awaited autobiography of Colonel Joe Kittinger written by Joe Kittinger and Craig Ryan with a Foreward by Neil Armstrong.  Joe tells of his many experiences including his being a North Vietnamese prisoner-of-war.  He set several ballooning distance records, including the first solo crossing of the Atlantic in 1984, but his proudest moment remains his free fall from 102,800 feet during which he achieved a speed of 614 miles per hour.
