WASHINGTON, DC - House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement today on the passing of American astronaut Neil Armstrong:
"A true hero has returned to the Heavens to which he once flew. Neil Armstrong blazed trails not just for America, but for all of mankind. He inspired generations of boys and girls worldwide not just through his monumental feat, but with the humility and grace with which he carried himself to the end. Ohio has lost one of her proudest sons. Humanity has gained a legend."
