 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
In speaking with Glenn's mother She informed me that he had returned from the first Gulf war with some unknown health issues, passed away as the direct result of them.   

She told me of a story he had relayed to her about chemical alarms malfunctioning and spending alot of time at MOPP 4,  in one case he was the first and only person to unmask to verify all clear was in fact valid.   Shortly after that incident he became ill and later partially recovered, but  from that point on he had difficulties with his breathing and endurance, He was later placed on the TDRL and released from Active duty,  after several years of ongoing diagnostic testing and treatment he passed away without a precise cause of death being established.  Massive systemic failure as the result of unknown origins was the official cause of death listed.
   
Other Comments:
From my knowledge and friendship with Glenn,  I would say that his mother had been told a truthful story and that his exposure to unknown agents in Iraq was the underlying cause of his passing.  He was a soldiers soldier and his troops safety was his #1 concern so I could very well see him not allowing a reduction in MOPP posture until he had cleared the area himself through his own sacrifice if necessary.
