[John Herschel Glenn Jr. (July 18, 1921 – December 8, 2016):] Source: LYBIO.net

I spent 23 years in the United States Marine Corps.

I was through two wars.

I flew 149 missions.

I was in the space program.

It wasn’t my checkbook, it was my life that was on the line.

[Applause]

You go with me as I did out to a veterans hospital and look those men with their mangled bodies in the eye and tell them that they didn’t hold a job.

You go with me to any Gold Star mother and you look her in the eye and you tell her that her son did not hold a job.

[Applause]

You go to Arlington National Cemetery – where I have more friends than I’d like to remember – and you think about this nation, and you tell me that those people didn’t have a job.

[Applause]

I tell you, Howard Metzenbaum, you should be on your knees every day of your life thanking God that there were some men, some men, who held a job.

And they required a dedication to purpose, a love of country, and a dedication to duty that was more important than life itself.

And their self-sacrifice is what has made this nation possible.

I have held a job, Howard.

[Applause]
