Neil Armstrong, first man on the Moon, Naval Aviator, and Korean War Veteran.

“I have made certain achievements in my life and been recognized many times, but, there is no achievement I value more highly then when I received the wings of gold…”

Fair winds and following sea to a man who even before his death belonged to the ages.

    Dear US Navy & SecNav: Please name the next supercarrier USS Neil Armstrong (CVN-80).

    Flattop, excellent idea.

    I dig the idea as well…

    I kinda like…Moonbase Armstrong. I think he’d rather see that 😉

    When I heard the news, yesterday evening here in Italy, I went outside and looked at the Moon through a veil of tears…

  • Not bad for a Flying Midshipman…

    I agree, let the next carrier be graced with the name of Neil Armstrong.
    To Neils family, we understand your(and ours)loss.
    Rest assured he is not forgotten and was an inspiration to the entire world.
    To Neil;
    God-speed on your next adventure. God Bless you!
