Video: John Wayne’s Tribute to the American Soldier

On this Memorial Day, we remember with profound gratitude all those soldiers who gave the last, full measure of devotion to keep our nation free. the words of the man whose public, and private, life embodied patriotism and devotion to America’s founding principles: John Wayne. Below are two recitations John Wayne performed on his full-length patriotic album, America, Why I Love Her.

“Why Are You Marching, Son?”

  4. Henry Tisdale says:

    Obama is doing only what he is told by George Soros. And anyone who thinks Obama is his own man, think again. Soros main stabilizing force to keep Obama in office, avoiding impeachment, ignoring grand juries, getting by with forged documents, BC, Soc Sec Num, Sel Service Regis card, etc. etc. etc. is MONEY. And it appears that the leading republicans in the House became receivers of such money, or equivalent career promises, and hence brace up Obama from the right as well as the left.

    How can we remember those who died in other wars when George Soros owns us – hook, line and sinker.

    And we are celebrating and saluting those who died for us? While we are drowning in our own greed, in our own forgetful minds, and our own corrupt government – Executive, Legislative and Judial Branches – all three wreak of stink.

  5. As moving as the first film/poem is, Why Are you Marching Son? I was shocked and dismayed to see an image, albeit brief, of John Kerry included with the pictures of all those amazing Patriots! The film editor should purge his image, as he is an insult to the sacrifices of our Men and Women in Arms, regardless of the Century. He has no concept of Patriotism and Courage, much like the current Pretender-in-Chief! Our Nation is borne on the backs of those who so bravely gave their lives, fought formidable foes, and were grievously injured, but who still honor our Great Nation!

  8. Dick Bachert says:

    Why in the world would the creator of the first video include a shot of JOHN KERRY?

    "Why Are You Marching, Son?" was produced in the 1970s, before the truth about John Kerry was widely and fully known.

      • It's NOT my wish.
        I posted it so people can see how far America has sunk.

        People voted to put a Jew hating, America hating muslim in
        the oval office. No cure for stupid. Did you watch the Video?

        • Seeks_the_truth says:

          Thank you for reminding people of what we are fighting against. Americans can no longer hide their heads in the sand and ignore what is happening. We MUST band together and fight, or continue to be cowardly and accept what they are trying to impose.

  11. Gloria Jimenez ross says:


  12. Seeks_the_truth says:

    Let us just take one moment to thank and honor all those who give their all for our freedom and way of life.

    I would like to take this time to thank all those who are serving our country. What pride and comfort I feel when I see that uniform. Thank you.

    To all the Veterans I give a heart felt thanks. When your country called, you stood beside her. You stood up for her. You protected her.

    I would also like to thank the families of those who gave all. Your loved one gave their all. I will not let it be in vain. I will not let them be forgotten.

    Semper Fi my brothers and sisters, Semper Fi.

    May God always Bless the memory of this "GIANT" movie actor that REALLY loved AMERICA with all of his heart. May HE always be remembered for what he was first——-A GREAT AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Seeks_the_truth says:

    God and the Soldier, we adore,
    In time of danger, not before.
    The danger passed and all things righted,
    God is forgotten and the Soldier slighted.

    He went where others feared to go,
    and did what others failed to do.
    He cried, pained and hoped–
    but most of all he lived times–
    never to be forgotten.

    Unknown Author

    Please take a moment to honor a Veteran. Please pray for them or just take a moment to remember them.

    After watching the videos just think that the president of America wants to cut military pay for ur brave soldiers.When all Obuma was,was a community agitator agitating to keep a racial divide by blaming republicans for everything.

  16. What a Great American Patriot! Sure do miss this guy! God Bless America!

  17. For SHAME showing John Kerry in a Patriotic Video!!

  18. I did not know that John Wayne recorded patriotic music. I knew him from his acting roles.

    • He has a CD out and it is wonderful and Patriotic. He was a patriot. Most of those with conservative values and common sense are now gone forever. John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Henry Fonda, Charleton Heston, Bob Hope, so sad. Now most actors are democratic morons. I want to puck everytime I see Baldwin doing the Chase commercial. what an arrogant SOB.

  20. An Obituary printed in the London Times – Interesting and sadly rather true.

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.
    No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

    He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
    – Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
    – Why the early bird gets the worm;
    – Life isn't always fair;
    – and maybe it was my fault.

    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies
    (adults, not children, are in charge).

    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place.
    Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for
    using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in
    disciplining their unruly children.

    It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student;
    but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion..

    Common Sense lost the will to live when criminals received better treatment than their victims.

    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you
    for assault.

    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a
    little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

    Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility,
    and by his son, Reason.

    He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
    I Know My Rights
    I Want It Now
    Someone Else Is To Blame
    I'm A Victim

    Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority
    and do nothing.

  21. Why indeed should John Kerry be included in a patriotic video? Why not Jane Fona alias 'Hanoi Jane'?

    Remember the 'Swift Boating' of Kerry? About that time approx. 200,000 citizens signed a petition to have him tried for treason. It was forwarded to the DOJ and disappeared never to be heard of again!

  22. offensiveandpeculiar says:

    Interesting… I wonder if the fellow whose birthday I share would want John Kerry's mug in his verbal tribute to our fighting men?

    If the Duke were alive today … but he is not, and in short order neither will America be. Like John we have a cancer and we are not going to last much longer in spite of all the patriotic words and flag waving. It is all a rather laughable and pathetic sight for those who are able to see it.

  23. What the hell is John Kerry doing in this video? what a disgrace to Eddy.

  24. John Wayne is the epitome of a gentleman, respectful as always, knowing right from wrong and standing up for those values. Just his voice, even without the video, is inspirational. His legacy lives on, true and faithful.

    I agree with the comment regarding common sense. What good is a bachelor's degree if they have no common sense? We need HONEST politicians with respect for fellow man and the country he or she represents.

  25. Patrick J. Deromedi says:

    Who was asleep and put kerry in here. A true "TRATIOR" along with Hanoi jane

  26. In the video you've posted "Why are you marching son", I'm personally offended by a photo that's in it. About 3 minutes & 2 seconds into it there is what looks like to me a photo of John Kerry. I feel his photo shouldn't be in a video about our American Hero's. He, especially after he got home to the US, was a war protester and a disgrace to the uniform he wore, and to the brave people who lost their lives over there, not to mention the POW/MIA's. He's about 1 step above Jane Fonda who is is lower than anything on this earth!

  27. John Wayne was a draft dodger.

          • As a deviant sexual stalker you come to a forum about politics and of course have nothing to contribute, not that makes any sense.

            So, you want to make it a personal attack.

            You are a bigot and a fraud, you pretend as a progressive and openly homosexual man that there is equality then use that label as an insult.

            I'm not interested.

            But that aside, for you to use that label as an insult shows you have no integrity and simply can't be taken seriously, and of course nobody here has done that for years.

            And frankly, your family rejects you for many reasons and your lack of integrity is only part of it.

            So, you want to make it your personal sex forum to get DICK PICTURES.

            You are a bigot and a fraud, you pretend as a progressive and closeted homosexual man that there is equality then you deny you are GAY, when we all KNOW better. Who ELSE says this? "…I do, and take dick pics for other gay guys…" ~~Roger~~

            I know I'm not interested, and I WON'T send you pictures of my DICK!

            But that aside, for you to deny that you're GAY is an insult and shows you have no integrity and simply can't be taken seriously, but of course nobody here has done that for years.

            And frankly, your family rejects you for many reasons, being GAY and your LACK of integrity are only part of it.

          • It appears once more you are an empty echo chamber of nothings.

            Marxism has failed you Joe. Progressive thought has failed you, it's regressive and you have regressed.

          • Proud Deplorable says:

            Hey stupid Troll, I'm talking about all the crap these Globalists have done to the Country. Open borders, invading countries like Iraq and Libya and the lost lives of countless men and women of our Military. Isis have slaughter thousands of Christians in the M.E, last I heard they burn 45 Children in a cage and 19 young women. These are the Policies of Hillary and this POS, and yet you imbeciles defend this loser.

            My life is fine and I'm bless, it's too bad you can't see that, it's time you take your head out of your ass! and wake the Fk up!!. George Soros and the rest of these Globalists don't give a fk about you, you're just like a dumb down sheeple being led to the slaughter house.

            You know those terrorists this POS set free? 8 of them have return back to fighting our military, this is so wrong and yet a loser like you is to dumb to see this.

          • Proud Deplorable says:

            The Policies of Hillary and Obozo have set the M.E. on fired. allowing Iran to have nukes is beyond stupidity, is down right TREASON!. The world to day have become a more dangerous place and now this witch wants to become our next president? she and her crooked foundation, she have sold out the Country.

          • I thought you told us all the Obama was canceling the elections, Beardo. Were you wrong or lying? Kunt!

          • Proud Deplorable says:

            You're the KUNT! you support this POS and his fk up policies that have set the Middle East on fire and made the world a more dangerous place.

            Don't count this loser out so quick, he is dangerous and capable of a canceling the election with a couple of more False Flags. "The National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order (Executive Order 13603) is an order of the United States' President signed by President Barack Obama on March 16, 2012"

            The US-led coalition admits its planes carried out an attack in eastern Syria, this act could bring the Country to WW3, this is like poking Putin in the eye. If we were to be attack by Russia because of this, this alone will be cause to bring on Martial Law.

            If and when this muslim moron leaves, he has his eye on being a UN Secretary General, for him that is a step up.

            Go back to sleep you're just another useless idiot being played by these globalists. Don't think for one moment they give a crap about you. You're too stupid and indoctrinated to open your eyes.

        But wait there's more,

        She didn't protect 4 Americans in Benghazi nor Top Secret Gov. Emails, how is she going to protect our Country?

        This woman is a criminal and does not deserve to be our President, she sold out the Country (Pay For Play) deleted 33,000 emails and wants open borders. She stole the donations of 14 Billion that she collected for Haiti and kept 94% for herself and only gave them 2%.

Now the Haitian people are hurting and homeless, dying of starvation and many of them are children. You're the one who is a loser and worthless, you support criminals who are greedy and heartless.
