The "Duke"

Today marks 40 years since John Wayne passed , I was at Ft.Knox Ky. a still wet behind the ears Private in the Army , We were 3rd shift Class's and had just gotten back to the barracks , 50 guys in a open bay getting ready to go out , When the Boombox blasting load on top of a wall locker stop playing music and announced that John Wayne had passed away . The whole room fell silent , It stayed quite , I'll never forget that moment . Those icons of the silver screen started to pass and the ones we have today pale in comparison .

I was only 3 at the time, but was raised on John Wayne movies thanks to my dad.

“I won’t be wronged, I won’t be insulted, and I won’t be laid a hand on. I don’t do these things to other people and I require the same from them.”
John Wayne as J.B. Books in “The Shootist”
