His start in the Marines has a uniquestory. Glen was drafted into the Army and said he and the other recruits allstood in a line as a Marine Sergeant walked down and said "I volunteer youand you and you," hand picking Glen.
He was first stationed at Camp Pendletonand traveled to Japan during the Korean War.
He thought he was going to Korea but,in yet another twist to his military career, the armistice was signed while hisplatoon was aboard the ship so they went to Japan instead.
