THOMSON, Ill. — Glen Whiting lived his life to care for his family, friends and country. He put them first, adhereing to the motto of his 2nd Infantry Battalion in Korea, “Second to None”.

He attained the rank of Staff Sergeant as a Combat Engineer with the 2nd Infantry Battalion. Glen would say “my time in Korea really strengthened my faith”.
