Neil Armstrong is my hero because he was the first man on the moon and someday I want to go to the moon.
Before he went to the moon Neil was an aerospace engineer, naval aviator, test pilot and university professor.
Neil was born on 5 August 1930, in Ohio, United States.
His father was a state auditor which meant the family moved every few years to a new Ohio town while Neil was growing up.
On The Moon
On December 23 1968 Neil was offered the command of the Apollo 11.
On July 21 2:56pm he was the first human ever to set foot on the moon.
It took Apollo 11 thats the spaceship that carried Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin to the moon 4 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes to the moon.

He left the service in 1952 and returned to college.
