Legendary Film Director John Ford Honored With U.S. Stamp

The Los Angeles Times reports that the late, great film director John Ford has been honored by the U.S. Postal Service with a stamp.

Ford, one of my favorite film directors, made many of my favorite films, such as Fort Apache, The Horse Soldiers, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, They Were Expendable and The Searchers. All of these classic films featured John Wayne, one of my favorite actors.

John Ford was a proud patriot and he served in the U.S. Navy Reserve, rising to the rank of Rear Admiral. You can read about his naval service via the below link:
