My son and I drove the short distance to Wapakoneta, Ohio today to visit the Armstrong Air & Space Museum. As most of you know Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon. As a young teenager in July of 1969 I and many others around the world was glued to our TV watching that historic event. Just a couple years later he moved to my hometown, Lebanon Ohio, where I played on the high school tennis team with his oldest son.
Then a few years later as I was applying for a slot to attend the Marine Corps Officer Candidate School, Neil Armstrong was one of my 6 references I submitted for my application. So it was a great day revisiting some of our country’s important history.
