Glenn was born June 17, 1985 to Marilyn and Bruce Howard at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. He grew up in Zanesville, Ohio and graduated from Philo High School in 2004. Glenn joined the US Army in September 2007 and served with the 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum New York. He deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2009-2010 where he earned an Army Commendation Medal and Meritorious Unit Citation. Glenn’s passionate sense of Honor, Duty, Selflessness, and eagerness to succeed in the mission fostered a truly remarkable commitment towards his unit, but more importantly, strengthened his intense dedication to his friends and family who surrounded him. His unending dedication can be seen today through his 3 children, Dominic, Damien, and Alecia Howard.
