The Green Berets 1968
At a time when Hollywood could do anything but portray our brave men and women of the military as the heroes they were and are, John Wayne stood up for them as he did his entire career. The Green Berets mug represents what many of us admire the most about Duke, his unwavering patriotism and love for those who have done and do so much for us! An interesting version of this mug(to the right) was sold on Ebay in 2013. We surmise this may have been one of the places Duke stayed while on location. Always thoughtful and appreciative, he probably had these made for the staff. The Green Berets mug was the fourth mug the Mug Shop did for Duke, it was produced on the Burden China blank.
