For 1st man on the moon

Neil Armstrong was remembered Friday as a humble hero who saw himself as a team player and never capitalized on his celebrity as the first person to walk on the moon. Hundreds attended a private service in suburban Cincinnati for Armstrong, who died on Aug. 25 at age 82. Among the gathering were his crew for the moon landing, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. As a worldwide audience watched on TV on July 20, 1969, Armstrong took the step on the lunar surface he called "one giant leap for mankind."
