NASA astronaut and former Sen. John Glenn to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery

John Glenn, the former U.S. senator from Ohio and astronaut who became the first American to orbit Earth, will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery,…

John Glenn, the former U.S. senator from Ohio and astronaut who became the first American to orbit Earth, will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery, according to FoxNews.com.


However, his body will first lie in state in Ohio’s capitol building prior to being flown to Washington D.C., where he will be buried at Arlington.


The details of his memorial, funeral and burial were revealed Friday as the nation continues to mourn Glenn, who played an influential role in America’s 1960’s space program. President Barack Obama has also ordered flag to be at half-staff to honor Glenn.


More from the Daily Mail:


The public viewing at the Ohio Statehouse and a memorial service at Ohio State University’s Mershon Auditorium is planned for next week; the dates and times were being worked out Friday, said Hank Wilson of the John Glenn School of Public Affairs. Statehouse officials meet Monday to authorize the public viewing.


Glenn, who died Thursday at age 95, was the first American to orbit the Earth, in 1962, and was the oldest man in space, at age 77 in 1998. A U.S. Marine and combat pilot, he also served as a Democratic U.S. senator, representing Ohio, for more than two decades.


During his time in the Marines, Glenn flew as a fighter pilot in World War II and Korea. He also served on the Armed Services Committee in the Senate.


In addition, Glenn ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984, but lost to Walter Mondale.


He also became the oldest person to fly in space in 1998 at the age of 77 as a payload specialist for Space Shuttle STS-95. He accumulated more than 200 hours in space.
