This week we honor a former Marine from rural Kearney, Glen Duncan.
His start in the Marines has a unique story. Glen was drafted into the Army and said he and the other recruits all stood in a line as a Marine Sergeant walked down and said "I volunteer you and you and you," hand picking Glen.
He was first stationed at Camp Pendleton and 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 his platoon was aboard the ship so they went to Japan instead.
Glen also has four brothers that were in the armed forces
Glen's daughter nominated her dad. She said he has always been proud of the fact that he served his country as a Marine and added that the family appreciates all he did for our country.
Glen, thank you for your service to our country.
