Glen was nominated by his son Evan:
My dad is in the Army. He has been in the Army since before I was born. He went to Iraq and Afghanistan. When he came back from Iraq I was in the 2nd grade (2009) and he came to my school and suprised me. I was really surprised and happy and we all cried. My dad is my hero because he is my dad, but he is also a hero for the United States because he is a Soldier in the Army.
