Col. Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin (USAF Ret.), 88, posted a tweet late Sunday night in response to the controversy over the new Neil Armstrong biopic First Man that plays down Armstrong as an American hero to the point that the American flag is not shown being planted on the moon. Aldrin flew to the moon with Armstrong and Michael Collins on Apollo 11 and followed Armstrong to be the second man to walk on the moon, on July 20, 1969, while Collins circled the moon overhead.

Aldrin posted two photos, one of him and Armstrong with the flag and the other of Aldrin saluting the flag. The hashtags posted with the photos by Aldrin appear to be a rebuke to the movie: “#proudtobeanAmerican #freedom #honor #onenation #Apollo11 #July1969 #roadtoApollo50”

As if to emphasize the point, Aldrin followed with a retweet of a photo of himself saluting the flag while standing in front of a photo of himself saluting the flag on the moon. Aldrin was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with an image of a man holding a US flag on the moon.
