Farewell to a true space pioneer....
Not many true American Hero's left in this world of ours, Blessings to him on this next journey, God Speed Rocket man!!!
May he find friends in the next journey !
Great honors for a real hero and very human guy! Rest In Peace, Sir!
He boldly went where few have ever been.....props to John G!
One by one we are losing the original pioneers of flight, learned to fly in fabric planes, flew in space, defended the nation, and boldly went where no one had been before, and it certainly wasn't due to white privilege either. Fought hard for his dreams, didn't always get them, but never quit fighting nor dreaming. I salute him as as a good Christian, a good soldier, a good statesman, a leader into the future and as a good American. May God grant us all such a good life and may our children try to emulate his lifestyle and not that of the latest rock star.
John Glenn was a total badass. These facts prove it.
John Glenn was one of my heroes - until he became one of the driving forces behind the Gun Control Act of 1968.
Last of the Mercury 7.................
Who were the Mercury 7?
He once said “I got in on this project because it was probably the nearest to heaven I’ll ever get, and I wanted to make the most of it.” Well I think that he made it. God Bless.
One year I scored real well at Christmas and got the GI Joe space capsule. It came with a small record of the entire first flight from countdown to splashdown. I can't tell you how many times I listened to that record!
They still make 'em pretty good, but the first guy to strap himself to the top of a bomb pointed at the most hostile environment and hit the go button has to have had the biggest pair in history. How the hell did he walk with a pair like that?
(Clears Throat)...... Marine.
Crap. Born with 'em. Marines can't make them (tho' they might make 'em harder.)
Back in the old corps, DIs were issued little manual inflating machines that they could blow into to make recruits' balls bigger. They discontinued the practice about the time cameras were invented, for obvious reasons. Now if you want to blow em up, you gotta do your own.
