Ignoring any possible sarcasm. Oswald got press because he was so bad, and Jerry got press because he did take an active role in being a good will ambassador for CAP. Glenn was/did neither.

I don't remember any active role for Jerry Lewis. That doesn't mean that there wasn't one, just that I can't remember one.

I've only seen...I think, three photos of Jerry Lewis in connection with CAP. Two of the photos were taken on the same day, same place, with a couple of cadets. In both photos, he is wearing a khaki shirt. One of the photos shows him standing behind a sign. The other one doesn't have the sign - revealing the absence of a belt and buckle. But, that doesn't matter - the trousers appear to be from a civilian suit.

I noticed a blurb about that. Why is he just now being buried? Did they prop him up by the jukebox?

"Anyone can hold the helm when the seas are calm ... leadership is about weathering the storm."

The moment any commander or staff member considers themselves a gatekeeper, instead of a facilitator, they have failed at their job.
I can't fix all of CAP's problems, but I can lead from the bottom by building my squadron as a center of excellence to serve as an example of what every unit can be.

"Though Glenn died Dec. 8 in Columbus, Ohio, his family asked for his burial to be scheduled
four months later on April 6, the 74th anniversary of his marriage to his high school sweetheart Annie."

according to the Arlington Cemetery web page, for a burial it can take from 3-6 months to schedule an interment.
