While iconic actor John Wayne is remembered for his roles portraying our nation’s servicemen on the big screen, many do not know just how far his support and admiration of our troops went offscreen. The Wayne family has opened their archives to share the correspondence Duke kept with soldiers and presidents, unforgettable photographs of his visits overseas in Vietnam and comments from our soldiers on why John Wayne movies represent the best values for the American military tradition. From throwing back a few cold ones to having personal conversations and visiting the wounded vets—readers will get a glimpse of Wayne in action with America’s greatest, in addition to taking a trip down memory lane of Wayne’s films, his original costumes, guns and other props.
