before he was an astronaut,
john glenn served as a military pilot during world war II and the korean war.
before leaving for combat missions, he always told his wife annie,
“i’m just going to the corner store to get a pack of gum.”
she always replied, “don’t be long.”
” the return makes one love the farewell. “
-alfred de musset
farewell john glenn, one of my heroes.
