Meet the Armstrongs

In 1962, the day Neil Armstrong was announced as America’s newest astronaut, his parents were flown across the country to appear on the game show “I’ve Got A Secret” in which a celebrity panel guessed contestants' secrets. Once the answer was revealed, the host happened to ask Mrs. Armstrong, “If your son turns out to be the first man to land on the moon, how would you feel?” Neil’s mother responded as most mothers would, “Well, I’d just say God bless him. And I wish him the best of all good luck.”
