Forty years ago, millions watched and heard reports of Apollo 11 landing on the lunar surface.
It was the ultimate reality show — this TV spectacular was one of a kind.
Millions of people were glued to their television sets on July 20, 1969 to watch two adventurous men as they debuted the art of “moonwalking.”
Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first humans ever to set foot on the Moon. It was an event that captured the world’s imagination and inspired a generation of scientists and researchers.
I remember in great detail when Neil Armstrong set his foot on the lunar surface. My husband and I were in Fulda, Germany and my husband was a member of the Army Band. We didn’t have a TV or even a radio in our apartment so we got in our VW Bug and drove to the post. When we arrived at the music building, we just sat in the car as we listened to the Armed Forces Radio as it reported each step and milestone. When we finally knew the men were safe, we stopped the engine and joined our colleagues for a celebratory dinner and great conversation.

WAIT A MINUTE!! Isn’t this a Clay Aiken blog?? Absolutely!! However, I would bet that Clay has asked his friends and relatives to share their experiences with him. From what I have read, Clay is interested in history and would probably enjoy our historical memories.
I hope you will share your recollections with us. Each story is important!!
