Buzz Aldrin, the second man to ever walk on the moon, has not yet weighed in on the controversy surrounding the new Neil Armstrong biopic “First Man” which left out the historic planting of the flag.
But we do have past tweets from Aldrin which just might shed some light on things. Here’s the American hero calling his salute of the flag his “proudest moment”:

Aldrin tweeted a few weeks back that he’s saddened that more people don’t fly their own American flags anymore:
The first thing I do every morning is put the American flag up on my balcony; and every night I take it down, and
properly fold and store it. It’s saddens me how few people do this anymore. #proudtoserve #mycountry #ourfreedom #usa #ifyoustandfornothingyoullfallforeverything pic.twitter.com/Aapi8fuDJX
