 We all know John Glenn the astronaut. Monday marked the 50th anniversary of his historic flight where he became the third American in space and the first to orbit the Earth. And John Glenn the U.S. Senator from Ohio. But what many may not know is that before that he had a distinguished career in the United States Marine Corps during which time he saw action in WWII and Korea and was the recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross, US Navy Presidential Unit Citation, China Service Medal and many other awards.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
