NOTES

Ford and John Wayne are the only two actors to receive the Golden Spur Award, given in recognition of an outstanding Western star.

In addition to his WWII exploits, Ford served two tours of duty in Vietnam with the Third Marine Amphibious Force and is the only actor to have served with both the Green Berets and the French Foreign Legion. Among his numerous medals and commendations are the Medal of Honor, presented by the Veterans of Foreign Wars; the Medaille de la France Libre, for the liberation of France; two commendation medals from the US Navy; and the Vitnamese Legion of Merit.
