Hank Nickol '55 mechanical engineering shares his thoughts on the passing of astronaut and Senator John Glenn.

Nickol writes:

John Glenn, the American hero and astronaut, has passed away at 95. He was the first man to orbit the earth, a marine fighter pilot in both World War II and the Korean Conflict and a four-time United States Senator from Ohio. I had the privilege to be his host at a tour of the Ford Cleveland Engine Plant during one of his re-election campaigns. A most humble unassuming man.
