CINCINNATI (AP) - Two fellow Apollo astronauts who flew on lunar missions will promote Neil Armstrong's children's health initiative ahead of a private service in Cincinnati for the late astronaut.
Eugene Cernan and James Lovell will be at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center on Friday to talk about the Neil Armstrong New Frontiers Initiative. The family of the first man to walk on the moon has suggested memorial contributions to that benefit or to a scholarship fund.
Cernan flew two moon missions and is the last man to have walked on the moon. Lovell's four space missions included commanding the harrowing Apollo 13 flight that was recounted in his book and a popular movie.
Armstrong died Saturday at age 82. Plans for a national memorial service are being worked out.
