You know the guys driving that program were largely educated in Germany right

You know that you're wrong? Other than the lead engineer who oversaw the design of the rockets - who "may" have been educated there - no one else of note was "educated in Germany". Many came from the military, especially the air force, along with engineers from around the US.

Nope. Most of the calculations were handled by supercomputers. They were primitive compared to today's standards, but they did the overall bulk of the job. They often ran calculations that took several days. Slide rules wouldn't have cut it by any stretch of fantasy.

Do some research on this guy and see where his early data came from

I am from Huntsville, AL so I know this history pretty well. Wernher von Braun was a German, educated in Germany. He and his team were brought to the US after WWII. After a couple of stops in various places, he and his team of German engineers ended up in Huntsville tasked with designing, developing and building rockets. They started small and built on top of each successful larger rocket design ultimately designing and building the Saturn V which was used for launching the missions to the moon. He and his team were responsible for the rockets.

The other machinery and vehicles were designed by mostly American engineers. They also had to design and develop computers for the control systems pushing computer technology at the time. So I guess it depends on how you look at it but we would not have gotten to the moon without all of them collectively. One thing is for sure though, we would not have even gotten into space, much less the moon, anywhere near as soon as we did without the German engineers developing those rockets.

I see it resulting from lack of faith in God, breakdown in families, greed on all levels.

Do you agree or disagree and why?

Agree, only a few items are missing; the constant distraction via smartphones being 1.

Some sources say we could've beat the Russians had Von Braun not been so cautious, but the Russians were reckless with their cosmonauts lives, so regardless they likely would have "beat" us by taking even more risks.

After the Apollo program, had Von Braun had more control over his projects, I believe we would have made it to Mars in the 80's as he envisioned.
