John Wayne Finally An Honorary Texan

Post by Dee » Wed May 27, 2015 11:09 pm

For fans of John Wayne, the state of Texas has now designated May 26th (his birth date) as John Wayne Day for a 10-year period beginning in 2015:
“WHEREAS, John Wayne is the prototypical American hero, symbolizing such traits as self-reliance, grace under pressure, resolve, and patriotism be it resolved that the State of Texas hereby resolves May 26th as John Wayne Day.”

Check out this audio interview with the Duke's son, Ethan Wayne, who speaks about his Dad's career:
