    Rest In Peace John Glenn ( 1921-2016 )

    As a Marine Fighter Pilot...he flew 149 combat missions in two wars...WWII and Korea.

    As a Test Pilot and Astronaut...He was the first American to successfully orbit the Earth...and later...the oldest man to go into space.

    And...As an American Icon...He was the longest-serving United States Senator in Ohio history.

    Godspeed John Glenn !!
