John Herschel Glenn Jr was born on July 18, 1921 and grew up in the town of New Concord, Ohio which at the time boasted a population of 2,650.

On December 7, 1941 like those today who answered the call after 911, Glenn dropped out of college to join the Army Air Corps but was not called up.

He found his way into combat during WWII, flying 59 combat missions in his F4U Corsair with The Marine Fighting Squadron-155 or VMF-155 “Ready Teddy” (Check out the unit’s mission insignia when you get a chance as it’s pretty unique).

I'm still playing with the overall concept of this blog, it's not a news site, you won't find "scoops" or "breaking news" here.
