I think that any week looking at great men would not be complete without including Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk upon the moon. I can remember the Apollo Program back the 1960 and early 1970's. Wow, what an exciting time to be growing up. There was such hope and enthusiasm in the country, and the space program highlighted some of the greatest things about the country. I can remember watching on TV as Neil Armstrong left the capsule and took the first steps on the moon.
It is funny how time slips away, as they say. Of the 12 men who walked on the moon, 8 are still living and they are getting up in their 80's. Neil passed away in 2012.
