While in Viet Nam Glen was wounded in a skirmish and received a Purple Heart for his injuries.    He was Honorably Discharged in February 1966.   On April 14, 1967, he was united in marriage to Carol Slonecker in David City, NE.  She preceded him in death on August 1, 2010.

Glenn and Carol moved to Colorado where Glenn was employed by the IBM Corporation as a production technician.  Glen moved back to Nebraska and in 2016 moved to Cambridge so he could be close to hunting and fishing around Harry Strunk Lake.
