Ex-Astronaut-Jury Duty

Neil Armstrong summoned for jury duty

The first man to walk on the moon reported to the county courthouse in Cincinnati this week after he was summoned for jury duty. As he has for years, Neil Armstrong is keeping a low profile while waiting to see whether he will be selected to serve on a Hamilton County jury during his three-week term of jury duty. Common Pleas Judge John O'Connor says the 74-year-old Armstrong has been low-key and that few around the ex-astronaut seem to realize who he is. Armstrong -- who lives in the Cincinnati suburb of Indian Hill -- began performing his civic duty Monday when he answered a summons for jury duty. Potential jurors are drawn at random from the list of registered voters. As commander of Apollo 11, Armstrong became the first man on the moon on July 20th, 1969.
