    Dear Mr. Aldrin,
    Congratulations on this very important anniversary. To
    you I wish you continued success in all your endeavors.
    I was unaware of the stalking incident that you had to endure from a very disrespectful individual time ago. I saw
    the video only recently. Your response was wonderful and
    was one duly deserved by the perpetrator. A man of courage and honor such as yourself should never have to endure let alone tolerate incidents like these. With great respect Sir, to you and crew mates, I salute you.

    Captain Aldrin,
    I’m sitting here at Facebook awaiting your arrival and recalling the moment in 1969 when I stood outdoors staring at the moon while you and Neil landed, thinking childishly that I might be able to see you. I remember feeling overwhelmed that the universe was instantly made smaller and that once formidable challenges seemed now feasible. You changed the world, Buzz, and the perceptions of many of us in it, that we can do anything we put our hearts and minds to. Thank you for furthering mankind and generating inspiration.

    I was in Hawaii on July 20, 1969 on my vacation. We all went in the hotel lobby to watch the big event. I’ll always remember where I was on that eventful day.

    Dear Buzz:
    On the night you and Armstrong walked on the moon, my wife and I woke up our one month old son Peter, held him in front of the tv just so that he could later on say that he saw the event.
    He still thanks us for that today.

    I was on a round-the-US family trip in July 1969, between my junior and senior years of high school. We stopped in Maryland for the evening, and watched the landing and subsequent activities on a friend’s television set. An inspiring event that is remembered annually.

    Dear Captain Aldrin,
    I was in Vietnam when the landing took place. I was aboard the USS Ranger CVA-61. I was attached to HC-1 (Helicopter Combat Support Squadron 1) and served as a Search and Rescue Aircrewman. In October that year, Bob Hope came to Vietnam and did his annual Christmas show. He brought Connie Stevens, Teresa Graves, Miss World, The Dean Martin Gold Diggers, Les Brown and the Band, and Neil Armstrong. What a show and what a memory. Neil Armstrong made a visit to our ready room since “he likes the Helo guys”.
    I retired in 1988 back with that same Squadron (HC-1).
    Thank you for what you do and have done.
    Armstrong is a family name so Neil could be a cousin.
    Respectfully
    Dave Story USN Retired

    Dear Captain Aldrin,

    I just wanted to send you my “Anniversary Wishes” on this very auspicious occasion. Mr. Aldrin I salute you for being a man of valour and a fine Space Ambassador around the world, I still get the biggest kick seeing you now and keeping alive the wonderful memories of your trip to the Moon quite a few years ago.

    Thankyou Buzz for being such a wonderful and inspiring person,

    Respectfully, Adrienne Hirsch.

    Thank You for your contribution for all of us. The general public has no idea how much it took to do what you all accomplished. I salute you and all that made it possible the greatest example of what man can achieve when we strive for the best.
    Best wishes always

    A momentous event for not just mankind, but for all life on this planet. I was 19 years old and remember that tense landing and breathtaking first step like it was yesterday. Buzz, you are one brave, lucky guy.

    My husband and I married on July 20, 1969. A college friend announced at our reception,” I always said that Charlie King would marry when a man walked on the moon”! At the hotel that night, we waited to start our honeymoon because we wanted to see the historic moment. After many delays to get the cameras just right, you took the walk. Needless to say, our honeymoon was very late getting started but I can never forget the date of the moon walk!

    Captain Aldrin,
    I retired from the USAF in 1981 and had the honor on being on the Medical Support Team (a minor role) stationed at Patrick AFB, FL that was in support of Apollo Missions 7 – 11. It was an awsome experience to say the least. Thanks for being a shinning example for people all over the world, especially the youngsters that may wish to reach for the stars. I am hoping to meet you some day–I missed that opportunity when I attended a few of the National Hall of Fame banquets hosted by Alex Trebeck in the 80s. Perhaps I can make one of your future events while I am still able to get around. Again thanks for being you!

    Dear Buzz,

    Here in Canberra, Australia, the Honeysuckle Creek, Tidbinbilla and Parkes teams who received your TV broadcast direct from the Moon will be gathering for lunch at the exact time (Monday 21 July our time).

    We will watch those first steps again, and drink a toast to you.

    Captain Aldrin,
    On behalf of all Americans,
    We will stand in awe,
    for as long as we live.
    You, Most Honorable Sir,
    are the stuff that dreams
    are made of.
    God bless you,
    Mark Van Boening
