Today’s show with host Scott Walker featured WWII Veteran Glenn H. King. If you’ve never met Mr. King, he has a rugged exterior and stands about 6 feet tall with grit in his face that says tread lightly. The U.S. Marine who calls Murfreesboro, TN home, has worked at the top secret Area 51 base, controlled and built heat seeking missiles and even ate dinner with President Truman.

But, he also has a heart that you may not see upon a simple glimpse. He has handed out around 4,000 stuffed animals to children, Alzheimer's patients, and even kids who were involved in car accidents or house fires. 

World War II Marine Glenn H. King is not your average 90+ year old. He has seen and been involved in the history of America. He has also been a part of our nations military defense system.
