Gus Grissom was one of the Original Seven Mercury Astronauts and one of the first men to fly in space. If that isn’t exciting, we don’t know what is! He hails from right here in Lawrence County and it’s important that we never let his story go unrecognized. Take this day to remember our local hero and have a little fun while you’re at it.
