E-News Special — December 2023 Celebration of Life for Glenn Snodgrass

The following information was provided by Glenn’s daughter, Allison Horton.

A celebration of life/remembrance gathering in honor of Glenn will be held at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Virginia on January 13, 2024, 1–4 p.m.

The address for the Army Navy Club is 1700 Army Navy Drive, Arlington, VA 22202. Please note that this is the Arlington Army Navy Club — not the Fairfax location.

The gathering will be a casual and relaxed event for attendees to meet with friends and family and to share the camaraderie Glenn fostered and valued so much. There is no formal program or schedule; it is essentially an open house. Please come and go as you wish, and enjoy some dessert.

The closest airport is Ronald Reagan National Airport; Dulles is 24 miles away. Local hotels include:

– Sheraton Pentagon City (just outside Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall) – Ritz Carlton Pentagon City

– Crystal Gateway Marriott

– The Westin Crystal City

Interment is four to six months out, and the date depends on Arlington National Cemetery’s schedule. Those details will be provided as soon as they are available.

The following obituary was prepared by Glenn’s family for the “Washington Post.” We have noted that the number of soldiers in his squadron is incorrect, and it may be corrected before publication. However, we wanted to get this information out quickly to the BHA membership, along with the notice of the celebration of life and the information that follows about the Colonel Glenn Snodgrass Ironhorse Commander’s Scholarship.

Note from Tom Smart:

Glenn did not want flowers. He wanted donations sent to the Blackhorse Association Scholarship Fund. To that end, we just created the Colonel Glenn Snodgrass Ironhorse Commander’s Scholarship, which can be found on the Association’s website.

To make your donation in honor of Glenn, please go to https://www.blackhorse.org/scholarships/ and select it from the drop-down menu.

As of December 18, the Colonel Glenn Snodgrass Ironhorse Commander’s Scholarship stood at $5200. We have a goal in mind, and we are not yet close to that objective. Since it’s near the end of the year, please keep in mind that

donations to the Scholarship Fund are tax deductible.

Of the things that were important to Glenn, the Blackhorse Association Scholarship Fund was very close to the top of that list.

The Blackhorse Association thanks Tom Smart for setting up this scholarship and keeping us all up to date on the events related to Glenn.
