Resident keeps cutouts reporting Neil Armstrong's historic landing for over 40 years
In light of the Saturday death of American history-making astronaut Neil Armstrong, Mahwah resident and Patch reader Tom Grissom dusted off pieces of history he's been saving since 1969. Grissom submitted the above photos of himself holding an original copy of the Indianapolis Star reporting "2 US Men Walk On The Moon."
"I kept this newspaper all these years," Grissom said.
Armstrong, the first man to step foot on the moon, died Saturday from complications from heart surgery, according to published reports. He was 82.
Grissom said it was "too bad" he got to show off his histroic treasure because of such a "sad occasion."
