I was only three years old at the time, but still remember Neil Armstrong heading down the ladder and placing the first known human footprint on the Moon. It was July 20, 1969…. and the world was watching with it’s breath held.
This is to honor all that participated in mankind’s efforts to get to the moon and beyond. It wasn’t ONLY an effort of the United States, but of several countries genius that brought Mankind into space… and eventually onto another world!
Here you will view photos, in order of their happening to the best of my knowledge. From the choosing of Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin Eugene “Buzz” Aldrin, through their training and launch to their eventual landing on the moon. Even a conversation with the then U.S. President Richard Nixon! You will see the golden olive branch that they left on the Moon as a sign of peace to all that may encounter it. And of course, their successful splash down and celebrations of the great accomplishments made.
One of my cherished items in my collection is on of the last photos you will see. An autograph to me from Mr. Neil Armstrong. I am honored to this day.
Happy Anniversary to all who worked on the Apollo & Space program! These memories are for you… and all future generations that benefit from your courage and wisdom! Thank You!
