HUSTED: Glenn was an Ohio-Made, American Hero & Global Inspiration

COLUMBUS – Former U.S. Senator and astronaut John Glenn died today at the age of 95. The following may be directly attributed to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted: 

“From the generation that taught us to always strive for greater heights came John Glenn, an Ohioan who proved for us that the sky was not the limit.

"John Glenn was an Ohio-made, American hero and a global inspiration who will be greatly missed. He left a legacy of greatness that goes beyond his status as the first American to orbit the earth; he was a dedicated marine, a strong statesman, and a devoted husband and father.” 

“Tina and I send our thoughts and prayers to Annie and the entire Glenn family as our grateful state says goodbye to a great hero.”
