PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

John Glenn was the first American astronaut to orbit the Earth. Today at the age of 94 years old, John Glenn's life is a testament to working hard and achieving many dreams in your lifetime. John Glenn served in WWII and received many accolades for his work as a fighter pilot. After the war he became interested in the NASA space program and competed in the infamous Space Race. John's achievements didn't end there. He ran for Governor of Ohio and served four consecutive terms.
