One small step for man….the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission


I was all of eight years old and allowed to stay up late to watch history unfold on my grandfather’s black and white TV.

It’s been 40 years since Neil Armstrong uttered the words, “That’s one small step for man…one giant leap for mankind.” The Apollo 11 mission was a landmark in this proud nation’s history and fulfilled President John F. Kennedy’s vision of landing a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s.
