The military is christening a Navy logistics ship in honor of John Glenn, the first American to orbit Earth and a former U.S. Senator from Ohio. The 785-foot USNS John Glenn is a Mobile Landing Platform ship - a new type of amphibious staging and assault vessel.
John Glenn plans to mark the 50th anniversary of his historic spaceflight with a series of events Monday to commemorate a half-century since he became the first American to orbit the Earth.
