I too had an opportunity to meet with Grechko, this time at my school:
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). I was able to meet and talk
with him at a luncheon before his presentation on campus. I remember him
as speaking excellent English and not requiring an interpreter. He was
very cordial and informative, with a big smile. I just wish I knew then
so much more about the manned Soviet lunar program that I do now.
Perhaps he could have provided some new insights. Anyway, it was a
pleasure meeting him.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to spend two days with Grechko many years ago when he visited Florida State University, interpreting for him during his visit, which included a public presentation and a press conference.
A congenial visitor, and he was helpful and patient with his interpreter!
