The last of the ' right stuff' men.

What a life-career. I admired him and loved him as a kid and still do. Hero of two wars..test pilot..astronaut. Man had balls. A genuine concern and love for his fellow veterans and a tuff as nails politico. A man who sought peace but never shirked from war if the nation felt it was necessary. He loved HER that much.

I didn't always love his political positions but he was... short of Gordo Cooper (his close friend) and the legendary Chuck Yaeger....truly a special person for me.

RIP Colonel Glenn, USMC,. Ret. 

You truly are flying high tonight..... among the Angels.

Amen.

Damn 'Slick Willy' should have 'recalled' him to duty and made him a Brigadier General. Damn shame that didn't happen in 98....oh well.
