Skip to comments.In Memoriam: Two Rare Interviews of Neil Armstrong
Posted on 09/02/2012 3:19:05 PM PDT by MSSC6644
Here are two different interviews of Neil Armstrong. The cited interview is much longer and was done just this year.
The second is from 1970. Short and very informative re: what he saw on and from the Moon.
I found them fascinating and wanted to share with my FRiends. Enjoy and thank the Lord for allowing us to "know" a man like Neil Armstrong.

One of my heroes. Thank you.

Thanks for the help and the tip. I seldom post, so I hope I remember.
Armstrong was also a war veteran, who flew all sorts of dangerous missions: witness the Bridges of Toko-ri with Bill Holden. Like many such men, he didnt like to talk about his experiences. Also he knew about what happened to Lindbergh. He decided not to be a celebrity in a world where celebrity matters more than accomplishment.
Allegedly, the last thing he said was “Wensleydale”.

Thank you for the wonderful links. He was a national treasure, yet so humble.
Clue me in. What are you talking about?
Thanks for posting this, enjoyed it very much. Talking about links always makes me hungry, yours worked just fine as posted. Time for a snack...
A genuine American hero.
Maybe he really liked Wensleydale cheese?
Sorry, I don't know what you mean here. Could you spell it out for me? Thanks.
If I warm up a piece of Wensleydale cheese will it reveal a mysterious code that can only be broken with an Ovaltine Ring Decoder?
I grew up about a half hour from Neil’s boyhood home, and our first school field trip always went to the Armstrong Museum in Wapakoneta. We’ve lost the greatest Ohioan.
The contrast between Neil Armstrong and John Glenn couldn't be starker.
"Everybody knows the moon is made of cheese."
