John Glenn went on his last mission today and I wish him good luck and God speed. He will always be remembered as an American hero and patriot. He along with the astronauts of the Mercury program were my heroes growing up. The Mercury 7: Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, Gordon Cooper, Wally Schirra, Deke Slayton, and Scott Carpenter paved the way for all human kind in space. May they all find there way across the stars.
