Neil Armstrong

The famous American that I am going to talk about is Neil Armstrong. He lived from August 5, 1930 till August 25, 2012. He was born in the Ohio farmhouse that his grandparents owned. The Armstrongs settled in the little Ohio town of Wapakoneta.When Neil Armstrong was young,in building model planes. Neil belonged to a Boy Scout troop for many years. In fact, Neil became an Eagle Scout,the highest level in scouting. He read airplane magazines,however,it wasn’t the same as learning to fly planes. That’s what he wanted to do most of all.Neil Armstrong studied for two years at Purdue University and three years in the U.S. Navy. Neil became an airman,where he had learnt to fly single engine fighter planes. He graduated and was a licensed Navy Aviator. On September 17,1962 he was one of the nine Astronauts who were chosen for NASA. On July 16, 1969 Neil and his two fellow Apollo 11 crew man started their journey. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stayed on the Moon for two and a half hours. Neil set foot on the Moon first and his message was”That is one small step for a man;one giant leap for Mankind”.Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon which is an important event,a great human achievement. Neil always said he was part of a great team, who made the dreams of reaching the Moon possible. Neil Armstrong raised the hopes and dreams of every human on earth. Thanks to him,we all believe that humans can achieve great things. I became curious to learn about the first man to land on the Moon due to my astronomy lessons. If I had lunch with Neil Armstrong,would love to ask about more interesting facts about the moon.
