Wetherbee Retires

Veteran NASA Space Shuttle Commander James Wetherbee Retires

"After a career featuring six space missions, five as commander, and multiple senior agency management positions, astronaut James D. Wetherbee (Capt., USN, Ret.) retired from NASA to pursue other interests."

Editor's note: Curiously, if you go to an internal web page at JSC which shows personnel losses for FY 2005, some 29 people are listed - all of whom (with two exceptions) are listed as having taken "retirement". Wetherbee is listed as having taken "separation". This is likely the result of simply not having enough years in as a civil servant (he served in the navy for a number of years).
