    I have a connection to John Glenn. I met him once years ago and I'm also named after him, well my middle name anyway.

    Yes, Godspeed John Glenn, thank you for your service to our country.

    I know I'm dating myself, but John Glenn's flight in Friendship 7 was an event that our grade school made sure we saw. I can remember sitting in the hallway, watching a TV on a stand to see some of the coverage of the flight.

    That was a historic moment in US history.... I think I was in 1st or 2nd grade but I'll never forget hearing the live feed from the flight center.... I recently heard a description of how dangerous space flight was in the early days. Amazing courage by all our astronauts to make America #1 in space exploration.

    I don't think you were born yet for Friendship flight. [;)] It was in 1962, before I was born, too.

    I was 5 for the moon landing, and don't remember a thing. That was Neil Armstrong and some others, I think. Not sure.
