Armstrong, who landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, was also a Navy veteran who flew nearly 80 combat missions in the Korean War before becoming an astronaut.

"It is fairly common for current and former Navy personnel to be interred at sea," Jacobs said.

Armstrong passed away due to complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures.

A public memorial will be held for Armstrong on September 13 at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC at 10 am.
