Idaho flags at half-staff today in honor of Neil Armstrong

Flags on all Idaho state buildings are flying at half-staff today in honor of the late Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon. His "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" comment electrified us all as he took that historic step, including me at age 7. Idaho decided to honor Armstrong today in line with a presidential proclamation ordering flags at all U.S. government and military buildings, both in the nation and abroad, to be lowered to half-staff today "as a mark of respect for the memory of Neil Armstrong."
