Astronaut John Glenn had quite the funeral today. And he is being hailed as a genuine American hero. His credentials are nothing short of impressive–WWII combat pilot, i the Navy, in the Marines, test pilot, flew the first transcontinental supersonic flight, and then on to NASA where he flew America’s first orbital flight around the earth.
But here is what makes him a real hero.
He married his wife Annie in 1943 and the marriage lasted until his death, 73 years.
