"Sure I wave the American flag. Do you know a better flag to wave? Sure I love my country with all her faults. I'm not ashamed of that, never have been, never will be. I was proud when President Nixon ordered the mining of Haiphong Harbor, which we should have done long ago, because I think we're helping a brave little country defend herself against Communist invasion. That's what I tried to show in The Green Berets and I took plenty of abuse from the critics." - John Wayne

The Montagnard Bracelet Duke wore.

The Montagnard bracelet, a prestigious symbol of friendship and respect, was given to U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers ("Green Berets") and others during the Vietnam War.

John Wayne received his bracelet in Vietnam from a Montagnard Strike Force led by a U.S. Special Forces A-Team.  "Duke" never took it off.

This is the letter from John Wayne to Captain Dick Bishop.

Only two of the 3,000 Montagnard refugees in the U.S. possessed the ancient free-hand engraving skills that adorn the bracelets.  In 1994 the most elderly of the two had a stroke so there's only one left.   We have not been able to find any in Vietnam who survived the post war years.
