I grew up in DuBois in the 60's I think I was in 6th grade and went to the local gas station to put some air in my bike tires. (air was free then). A guy said getting his car worked on said, "Lad shake my hand. You just shook the hand that shook the hand of John Glenn". Everyone knew the names of the Mercury astronauts. I didn't was my hand for a month till my mom caught me.
