Thread Name: The Quiet Man Film
Subject: RE: The Quiet Man Film
To give the man his due, in WWII John Wayne did try to enlist but was rejected due to a football injury. (He attended USC on a full football scholarship.) Wayne apparently went to Washington to have the decision overturned but he was refused.   Wayne went on several tours in the Pacific visiting front lines.
