Romney: Neil Armstrong ‘Takes His Place In The Hall Of Heroes’

Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney on Saturday issued a statement regarding the death of American astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.  

Neil Armstrong today takes his place in the hall of heroes. With courage unmeasured and unbounded love for his country, he walked where man had never walked before. The moon will miss its first son of earth.

 I met and spoke with Neil Armstrong just a few weeks ago–his passion for space, science and discovery, and his devotion to America will inspire me through my lifetime.
