U.S. Marine Jake McEwen, a 2015 alum of Caledonia-Mumford Central School, was among 40 of his fellow Marines who stood guard as many, many thousands attended and watched on national TV to pay their final respects to Glenn, a distinguished WWII fighter pilot, U.S. Senator, and the first man to orbit the Earth as he lay in state at the Ohio Statehouse.
“Service at its best!!!!” commented Todd Estabrooks on Facebook.
