Wishing General Duke a very happy 77th Birthday!

Very much looking forward to meeting him for the first time next weekend at Autographica.

Yes, best wishes to a fellow Libra who shares the same birthday. Met him and Scott Carpenter at a signing and he could not have been more gracious.

Happy Birthday to a great pilot and great human being.

Gen. Duke will go down in history not only as a Moonwalker on Apollo 16, but as the CAPCOM for man's first landing on the Moon.

A very 'Happy 79th Birthday' to General Duke. Seeing you at the Rick Wakeman/Brian May concert in Tenerife recently, you could easily pass for someone at least 20 years younger!
