Godspeed to you Mr. Armstrong. Thank you for being a very special and humble person in our (USA) race to be the first human to land on our Moon...You made me and all Americans proud that we could answer the call of President Kennedy..."...to land a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth before the end of the decade... (1970).
You accomplished this mission with the great calm and professionalism that was the trademark of the Apollo Astronauts...indeed, the trademark of one especially courageous, calm, and professional
Astronaut...one Mr. Neil Armstrong...whom I have always believed was the true ideal Astronaut of
The Apollo era. Thank you for fulfilling the dreams and desires of JFK. Thank you for fulfilling the
dreams and desires of the generations who have followed you to the Moon and hopefully someday to the stars.
Godspeed Neil Armstrong...and thank you for your strength, intelligence, and perseverance. Thank
you for always looking upward and outward.
I hope we always follow your example,
Dennis J Floyd
