I have to say that JOHN GLENN is the greatest american hero to ever live!!!!
He served in TWO Wars (ww2 and korean) with a total of 24 years of service in the military (naval air corp and marines)
he had the rank of colonel
he was a fricken FIGHTER PILOT with 149 combat missions (omg how much balls did he have)
he was a US senator for 24 years!
got the distinguished flying cross 5 times over!
was honored with TWO ticker tape parades in NYC!! ((2) two!)
did this without having graduated college..
OH YEAH.. and he was the FIRST AMERICAN TO ORBIT THE FUCKIN EARTH!!! (MOST people freak out and want to puke their brains out just wearing
a pressure suit and he flew up into space and orbited the earth wearing one)
and then theres the minor stuff like
going back up into space at 77 ..oldest person in space (with his gigantic balls of steel)
being with robert kennedy when he was assassinated
at least 5 schools named after him.. highways named after him
congressional gold medal (highest honor for a citizen besides one given by president himself)
married for 69 years!!!
has been alive 90+ years!!!
oh yeah AND HE WAS THE FIRST AMERICAN TO HAVE ORBITED THE FRICKEN EARTH
JOHN GLENN: GREATEST AMERICAN HERO
