Stamps Commemorate First Lunar Landing
 
 
On July 20, 1969, America made history when the men walked on the moon for the first time. This mint stamp sheet honors that event.
 
As commander of Apollo 11, Neil Armstrong piloted the Lunar Module to a safe landing on the Moon's surface. Also on board the mission were astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.  At 10:56 p.m. EDT, Armstrong stepped down onto the Moon and made his famous statement, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."
 
Armstrong and Aldrin spent about two and one-half hours walking on the Moon collecting samples, doing experiments, and taking photographs. On July 24, 1969, the three men splashed down in the Pacific Ocean and were picked up by the aircraft carrier, U.S.S. Hornet.
 
The three Apollo 11 astronauts were honored with a ticker tape parade in New York City soon after returning to Earth. Armstrong received the Medal of Freedom, the highest award offered to a U.S. civilian. His other awards included the NASA Distinguished Service Medal, the NASA Exceptional Service Medal, seventeen medals from other countries, and the Congressional Space Medal of Honor.
